    i had the same problem and found the temperature switch on the panel was craked around the actual knob. was not a problem with the heater, the knob was slipping around the stem and not actually turning it to the hot side.

A QUICK FIX FOR A DAMAGE HEATER CORE?
TO REPLACE A HEATER CORE IT COST ABOUT $700..
THE COMPLETE DASHBOARD HAVE TO BE REMOVE...

BUT IM HERE TO SPARE YOU OF $700 FOR NOW.

I WILL GIVE YOU THE BEST AND QUICK AND CHEAPEST SOLUTION TO GET YOUR CAR ON THE ROAD... ASAP, A $20 FIX..

DO IT YOURSELF AND SAVE THE TOWING TO MECHANIC.

THE BAD (YOUR HEATER WILL NOT WORK).. YOUR FAN AND AC WILL WORK FINE, JUST NO HEAT. (SOLUTION>)GET A PORTABLE HEATER THAT CONNECT TO YOUR LIGHTER UNTIL YOU GET THE CASH TO PAY $700+

A HEATER CORE IS THE LITTLE RADIATOR UNDER YOUR DASH, THAT RECEIVE ANTIFREEZE FROM THE BIG RADIATOR IN FRONT OF THE ENGINE, THAT GIVES YOU HEAT DURING COLD WEATHER.

FROM THE BIG RADIATOR THERE IS 2 LITTLE HOSES THAT ATTACHES TO THE HEATER CORE, LOOK FOR IT NEAR THE BRAKE SYSTEM IN BACK OF THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT ON THE PANEL OF THE CAR. (2 RUBBER HOSES.. (SEE PIC BELOW FOR SAMPLE)

THEY WILL HAVE 2 CLAMPS, WITH REGULAR HAND TOOLS, YOU
WOULD BE ABLE TO REMOVE BOTH HOSES, ONCE YOU REMOVE THEM..
BUY A SMALL METAL TUBE IN THE SHAPE OF A (U)
AND CONNECT BOTH HOSES TO EACH OTHER, AND PLACE BOTH BRACKETS OR CLAMPS TIGHTLY FOR NO LEAKS.

ITS A 10 MIN JOB.

REMOVING BOTH HOSES FROM THE HEATER CORE AND RE-ATTACHING THEM TOGETHER, ALL YOU DOING ITS ELIMINATING THE HEATER CORE COMPLETELY, THAT'S LOCATED UNDER THE DASH FOR HEATING SUPPORT.

IF YOUR HEATER CORE WAS LEAKING ANTIFREEZE INSIDE YOUR CAR, IT WILL STOP LEAKING ONCE YOU DISCONECT THE 2 HOSES FROM OUTSIDE ENGINE COMPARTMENT, THERE WILL BE NO MORE ANTIFREEZE GOING INTO YOUR HEATER CORE SINCE YOU WILL BYPASS THE HEATER CORE.

ONCE YOU CONNECT BOTH HOSES TOGETHER, THE ANTIFREEZE WILL CIRCULATE BACK TO THE FRONT RADIATOR AND NO OVER HEATING AND NO LEAKING INSIDE YOUR CAR MO MORE. YOUR CAR WILL DRIVE FINE, YOUR AC AND FAN WILL WORK THE SAME...SO LONG THAT WAS THE ONLY PROBLEM.

THIS THE MOST AFFORDABLE AND QUICKEST SOLUTION TO GET BACK ON THE ROAD ASAP.

LEAVE ME YOUR FEEDBACK.

GOOD LUCK

THANKS

2000 ford expedition no front heat, back heat work fine. I went through the glove box and into the side of the heater box, the blend door works fine. Any ideals?


if blend door works blower working check make sure you have enough coolant because suvs holds right much antifreeze.heater not working heater core plugged make sure both heater core hoses hot to touch if so problem could be temperature mode switch.

00' yukon xl no heat in front but works fine in back


You might want to try back flushing the heater core.This is probably your problem.If you know where the heater hoses go into the back wall of the engine compartment then feel the hoses.They should both be hot to the touch with the engine at operating temperature.If one is hot and the other you can hold your hand on it all day.Then try flushing the heater core.If it warms up some or gets any better.Then this is your problem.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I have numerous proglems. I have a 2000 intrique. The right back signal light blinks very fast, doesn't work in the front. The ac blower works fine but blows warm air.A mechanic , someone my hysband...


Your rear turn signal flashes fast because the front is not working. Most likely you have a burnt out bulb in the front. If your A/C compressor can be turned over by hand and doesn't lock up or make any clanking sounds it's probably alright. The compressor will not run if the system is low on refrigerant. If you're having problems with the A/C and heater controls, that would be the first ting to repair. It doesn't sound at all like any electrical problems.

Have the front heater core flushed ,since there is heat to the rear the thermostat is fine so it could be plugged.If the fan works on no speeds the check the fuse for the heater fan,if it's good you neerd a blower motor.

There is a flap in the venting itself that can get stuck. Or the actuator that moves it can become faulty. It is located above heater core and it's housing. You will have to remove bottom console to access it.

Heater fan regulation


2002 Grand Caravan. The rear heater also has a resistor for the fan speed control.(3 speed) It is located under the rear passenger side plastic cover. You can take off the rear tail gate lower plastic piece and this will let you pull out the side panel. You can reach in and take out the two screws that hold in the resistor and unhook the wiring adapter. You do not have to take off the whole side panel as you can reach in from the back. The resistor unit can be bought at you local dodge dealer.

Heater wont blow heat but A/C works fine....


Go to engine compartment, locate heater control valve. It will have the heater hoses connected to it that pass into the firewall. Unhook actuation plunger on the control valve. This will allow the coolant to flow though the heater core at all times. Now you have heat. If you get too hot, you can control it by the hot/cold settings to adjust the heater door.
