Venting problems with 2003 oldsmobile alero

Well the heating vent won't stay open when the heat is turned on. They said that it closes when we drive over rough roads. My question is how do i do it myself and open the vent under my dash or where is the vent?

Is it electronic? or manual? The heater box is located behind your dash on pass. side. it's big project it requires recycling your a.c refigerent. If your comfortable with the project, buy yourself a book from your local auto parts store. This book tells you a complete tear down of your car. The book is Haynes

I have a 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora. When i turn the heat on, the driver side doesn't blow hot air. Only the passenger side and the rear console do. whats the problem?


your vehicle has dual controlls for the heat and air. Make sure the driver side heat is on. if that fails, see if you have heat coming out of any vents on the drivers side. if not, the controller could have a bad connection of a loose vacum hosecausing the proper doors to not open or close properly.

2003 ford expedition i just got it a week ago and the front heat works great but the back vents only blow cold air. How do i fix this?


With the car parked and engine idling, turn the ventilation control between windshield defroster and "open air ducts" to front and rear vents. Listen to pinpoint where the valves are that open and closes the air ducts. It sounds like the air duct to rear vents are blocked, and the cold air in rear air duct is coming from "outside ventilation." The air vent to allow hot air to the rear vent is stuck in "open ventilation" mode, like when you're driving in spring or summer months.

A little heat is coming out of the vents in my 2001 oldsmobile alero but its not blowing out


Could be a problem with the blower motor, or a blend door.
The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and out thru the vents.
Someone would need to remove the blower motor and check it.

Buick Rendezvous Heating have Problem


Not a problem. I'm glad to help. As far as the vents, yes they run by vacuum. If the blend door or other door isn't opening or closing, you could draw cold air from one vent and warm in another.

Give it a try and let me know if you find anything. If you can't, I'll see if I can dig a vacuum diagram for the system ,may be you can find your problem

Heat will come out of the defrost vents but not out of the dash or floor vents. The car has a new 190 degree thermostat in it.Any help greatly appreciated. thanks, dave j.


there is door actuators that open/close vents to allow air to be move to the area selected. If your able go to the car turn car ignition to accessory turn fan speed all the way up then move selector to floor or face wait a few seconds and you should hear the vent doors open and close if you dont hear them that will be a good place to start.

My temperature gauge read red... the light came on and I turned the heater on to try to help it cool down,it worked, but there was no heat coming from the vents. when i turn the heat off, temp rises...


Have you checked the coolant level? If it is low, what you describe will happen, the engine will run hot, and the heat won't seem to work (coolant level too low to circulate through the heater core). Hope it's that simple, if not, let me know and I'll attempt to help further. Good luck!

I have a loud tapping noise sometimes, coming from under my dash (drivers side). It sounds as if someone is tapping with a hammer on the plastic. I have a 2002 Ols bravada. It it safe to drive?


The AC/Heater unit has electric motors the open and close all the vents and heat to cold doors. when these electric motors begin to open or close past their stop points, the motor try to continue to open and close itself properly, thus fourth its tapping all the time. to see which one it is, turn the heater control to cold and slowly to hot. most of the time, its the heater door. if not, do the same with the vent control. the problem is common withe the GM SUV's.
