No, you just need to fill freon gas.

SOURCE: 1997 jeep grand air blend door location

The Jeep Grand Cherokee sucks air from the outside via a hole on the passenger side of the cowl. It's under the black plastic piece that runs under the wipers.

The air is then sucked via the blower and blown into the housing where the heater core and A/C evaporator core live.

The blend door is inside this housing as well.

This also depends on if you have regular climate control or the more advanced ATC digital climate control found on some of the Limiteds.

You could possibly take out your glovebox and see if there are any broken pieces going to the door accuator.

Otherwise if it's internal, you'll need to take out the heater/ A/C housing.

To get to this housing, you have to take apart your entire dash, lift the top dash cover off, and then you'll see the housing. You could possibly check for a few thing there.

Most everything there is vacuum controlled.

You have to drain your antifreeze and have your A/C freon discharged (use a professional to capture the freon).

There are 5-6 nuts holding the housing to the firewall. You have to reach these from the engine compartment.

Disconnect your A/C lines and heater hoses. Pull out housing.

This is definately an advanced project, thus the reason for the high pricing.

Hopefully you can get it fixed without having to take this Jeep apart entirely. Try diagnosing with a vacuum gauge if necessary before tearing it apart.

I need to know if there is an external heater control valve on the eatc unit in my 2003 grand marquis /


This vehicle does NOT use a heater control valve. Coolant flows to the heater core at all times. Temperature is regulated by the blend air door and blend door actuator. Locate the blend door. Remove the actuator and open the door by hand. If you get heat, the actuator or the control head is bad. FWIW, the actuator is the most likely cause

2004 grand am gt I have lukewarm air in the passenger compartment it will not get hot. every thing is normal.


I suspect the blend door or actuator. This is a labor intensive repair or diagnosis, as the blend door is under the dash, passenger side, and lots of things need to be removed just to get to it. This year of Grand Am has an electric actuator that may have died - but the actual controls for it may be in the computer. You could throw a lot of time and money at this problem and still not have it fixed. depending on how much you value this car and the condition of the rest of it, you may just want to buy a 12 volt ceramic heater that will plug into the cigarette or accessory outlet for warmth.
Hope this helps!!

2006 Grand Prix Heater blows cold air only


The blend door is probably what is keeping the air from blowing across the heater core and picking up the heat. I hope your manual gives a description and procedure for it.

The blend door actuator and other heater case doors will be either vacuum operated with a few canister diaphragms situated around the heater case, or they may be operated with electric motors. If you pull off the lower sound insulator panels below the dash, you can see the bottom of the heater case, and then find the actuator for the blend door. If vacuum operated, check for vacuum. The vacuum for the heater/AC controls comes from a single line from the engine, through the firewall, and into the back of the control head or to a control module. Then, many vacuum lines branch out from this central point to the canisters- the heater/AC controls will direct vacuum to appropriate actuators, or servos.

Afternnon, just wondering about the best way to locate the blend doors in the hvac box without ripping out the dash on my 2000 jeep grand cherokee. Thanks in advance. Duane


y9ou can gain access to the driver side blend door actuator by removing the glove box. The actuator will be in the left corner of the glove box opening. If you remove the actuator you will be able to turn the pin. If you can turn it 360 degrees the blend door is broke.

If your lucky its only the drivers side. If you get the repair kit from chrysler it will come with instructions with pictures on how to replace the blend door without pulling the HVAC unit/Dash. If the passenger side is broken the HVAC unit will need to be removed.

Heater treater (google them) also have a metal blend door replacement and instructions online on how to replace them without pulling the HVAC housing.

Ac blows out the defrost side 1999 grand cherokee I-6 engine


these were common for the blend air door breaking around the pivot side. They would break clean off and not allow the switch of cold air to hot air etc. This can easily be dtermined by having a technician scan the HVAC module and a code will be "blend door range too large" then you know for sure either the actuator motor, or the blend door is broken. Either way, its 10 hours labor, minimum, at a shop. Simply because the entire instrument panel (dash) has to be removed from the vehicle and lay across the front seat. Then you can find access to the heater box and remove it. Only then can you replace the necessary doors, and actuators. Its very labor intesive. Good luck with the repairs.

My air conditioner is working but won't blow out


Are you saying the temp blend door is not working?
If yes, it's the control head or the temp blend door motor on th plenum case under the dash. Buy used on ebay.

DO you have manaul or electroic controls?

If electronic

A/C Electronic Blend Door Actuator The A/C electronic blend door actuator is located on top of the A/C evaporator core housing (19A553) assembly.
  • Its function is to move the A/C air temperature control door on command from the control assembly.
  • The A/C electronic blend door actuator contains a reversible electric motor and a potentiometer. The potentiometer wiper is connected to the actuator output shaft and moves with the output shaft to indicate the position of the A/C air temperature control door.
  • A five volt signal is applied to the ends of the potentiometer. The voltage available at the wiper indicates the position of the potentiometer. The expressed value of the actuator wiper voltage is sent to the control module and matched with the wiper voltage of the module potentiometer. The printed circuit board then drives the actuator motor in whichever direction is necessary to make the actuator wiper voltage agree with the control module wiper voltage.
