Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue

1 Answer

Cold air not blowing hard enough

I recharged the a/c just so I can get cold air but its not blowing hard enough, seems like the blend doors are not blocking off the top and bottom vents to force the air out the dash vents. the climate controller is not producing any codes.

    But if it was the evaporator wouldn't it now blow cold period?? Because it blows cold air and it doesn't seem to be leaking since its holding a charge.

SOURCE: 2004 Bravada Climate Control Blend Door

dear,

You might try treating it like a computer...reboot. Disconnect the battery for 20 minutes and make sure the cell phone charger doesn't have a cell phone in it. Surprisingly enough, there was a guy years ago on the old Wrenchead.com site who couldn't reset the codes on an OBDI vehicle and later found a cell phone on the charger which was back feeding the ECM enough the codes wouldn't reset.

regards,

dont rate it until satisfied

SOURCE: driver side blows cold passanger hot

Same problem as mine has. I just found out that it could be the LH Electric actuator, located under the driver side dash, just about straight behind the radio. I got mine in order so i do not knoe if that is the solution yet. just athought for ya.sounds like this should fix it though.

SOURCE: Still looking for a solution for my 98 Olds

Check your wiring with an ohm meter. Also ckeck the plugs at both ends and make sure there aren't any pins pushed out or bent. And just to throw this in, you may have bought a bad motor. You have other motors on the plenum, try swapping them to see if you get results. If they are accessible. Good luck

The heater kicks on but only blows cold air


Air Temperature Control Blend Door Failure No Heat or no AC (dependes on where door sticks)

In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.

Other causes of no heat in the cabin are engine thermostats that are stuck open (engine runs cold) or air bubbles in the cooling system.

My 2004 ford explorer makes a clicking noise when selecting between cold and hot air. And the AC will not blow cold air / heater will not blow warm air.


it is the blend door, driver side by gas pedal, very hard to get to, the door has a rotery gear that when the teeth break off, thats when you get the clicking sound

Air blows cold in rear but warm in front vents.


If it is cold in the rear, that eliminates the "freon" part of the system. (It apparently has enough freon and the compressor is apparently working.)

So that leaves you with a blend-air door problem on the front A/C unit. That may be a blend-air door actuator, a broken blend-air door, or a faulty control head. (Proper diagnosis required)

Driver side blowing hot air passenger side blowing cold air


I'm having the same problem except on mine it's the driver's side that's blowing cold. Do you have the pictures in a finer resolution? I can't make them out and when I zoom, they are too grainy. Does the replacement require removing the dashboard? What's the general cost of the acuators? Are they readily available at like NAPA or other parts stores?

AC problem


is the compressor turning on? when you turn thwe a/c? on,
and also locate the low side line on engine compartment and feel if is cold, if it is, then your blend door system is not working,
the blend door does control the cold and hot air coming to engine.
