What diverts air to defrost. Air comes out vents and floor. ac works and heat , but won't go up to dash vents. The flaps are working.

You just THINK the flaps are working, but apparently the top vent is not. These multiple flaps are controlled by vacuum and you have a line off to that particular flap. This means the flap won't open and the vacuum leak, whether you can hear it or not, is making you lose MPG also, though slight. The vacuum line could be cracked or disconnected from the flap or at the vacuum block on the back of the lever unit.

Most of the time this noise is heard when a temperature actuator has gone bad, you can check this by changing temperatures and noting if the noise changes in sound. If so then replaced the actuator. If no change is noted, then open and lower the glove box and while changing from a/c to max a/c, check that the recirculation door is moving into place and not flapping. if flapping, the recirculation door is broken and will need replacement.

Drivers side window doesn't work.

This could be caused by a couple of different things. First off, when you depress the switch for the driver side window do you hear any kind of noise at all? If you are hearing a noise but it sounds like it's moving very easy, it could be the gear on the motor or the window is off track. If you are not hearing any noise at all, it may be the motor is out and will need to be replaced. These can be purchased from most auto parts store or your local chevrolet dealer parts department. The switch panel typically is held on by screws coming from underneath. You will most likely need to remove the door panel and unscrew the switch panel from the door panel once the door panel is removed from the door. While you have the panel off, you can look inside the door and make sure the motor is plugged in and also test to see if the motor is coming on when the button is depressed or if it is binded up you can hear that also.

2003 Hyundai Tiburon Passenger Power Window Problem

my wifes 2003 tiburon has the same problem... passenger side window has a hard time going up or down when it feels like working at all. it is the motor because i tested the for power and their is... if your a "hands on" person, you can try and change it yourself but be advised its very tricky... seperating the motor from the regulator... cable may come apart and be impossible to reconnect... its easier to take apart the motor when the windows down... and their should be 7 10mm nuts holding the motor.

Problem: Ford Windstar SE, 3.8L V6, 1999, front seat heat/defrost is alway cold with engine warm and heater turned on. Symptoms: 1) When (engine is warm and) front seat heat temp slider is moved from...

I would think the door you hear flapping is the door that controls the airflow across the heater coil - and the fan keeps blowing the door closed, preventing the airflow from going across the heating coil. I don't know whether this vehicle is vacum controlled or cable controlled - so either it's a disconnected cable, or a leaking vacum line.

2004 ES330 two rear window are not working.

Sounds like the glass, or motor, may be stuck from lack of use. Try having the key, or car, on while sitting in the back seat. With the door open, hold the window switch in the down position and close the door kind of hard. ( I don't want to say slam the door, but that's pretty much what you should try). If the glass doesn't come loose, you may need to have it checked out by a technician. The rear windows are known to stick on this model/year, and Lexus did have a service bulletin about it. However, it may also be that the door ECU's are faulty.

Rear Passenger Window (Drivers Side) will not go down

Hello, To check to see if its the motor or the switch is simple. Turn the ignition switch on and turn off all noise making things, radio etc. Open your door that has the problem and operate the window switch while you have your ear against the door panel. Listen carefully, you should hear a slight click as you operate the switch. Make sure that the child lock is not on. If you hear it click, the window switch is good and the motor is bad. If it doesn't click, the switch is bad.
If the motor clicks but has no movement you will need to replace it. It comes as an assembly with the regulator. You can not buy the motor separately.
You do not need to take to a dealer for repair but whoever does it needs to know these cars.
I hope this helps.
