Question about 2009 Subaru Forester
I put the dial pointing at the "feet" only for the heat but little to no heat comes out there. It comes out the "face vent" and the "defrost/windshield" vent. If I move the dial to the combo "foot and defrost/windshield" than again barely any heat directed to the floor, most go to the defrost/windshield and rest to the face. Its very aggravating. I only have 7200 miles on this car and have had it for 10 months.

Did something fall down in one of the vents? Sounds like a blend door is not able to fully move for some reason. If it's still under warranty take it to the dealer.

Drop in to an Autozone, or Pep Boys, or similar big parts store & they will usually scan for codes free. This will hopefully eliminate all the guess work, or at least point everyone in right direction for better diagnosis. If not obvious from codes what the problem is, get back to us and we'll help you out.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the great suggestion . I'll have Autozone read the codes on Monday. Thanks again!"
probably whatever you put in the cupholder has spilled on the controls causing them to stick,poor design isn't it? no real fix ,i would try to spray some silicone in between the buttons and try to free them,look into buying a unit from the junk yard, not a hard component to change at all

An overheating issue can be caused by a few different things, the most common cause of overheating is a sticking thermostat..it is a $7 part that is very easy to replace, it needs to be eliminated from the mix. Second most common would be a faulty water pump, this is usually characterised by a leak at the pump itself. If you are loosing coolant, you need to make sure it is not getting into your oil, you can check the dipstick for bubbles or a milky looking sludge. This can be caused by a cracked head or blown head gasket, these conditions are usually caused by the overheating itself, so if this is not the case, be careful and do not let it get too hot! The other thing that can cause an overheating issue would be a clogged radiator. The fan issue is problably not causing your problem, because at 35 miles per hour, enough air is being forced thru the radiator to effect cooling. The fans are good for when your car is sitting still. The electric fans are controlled by a coolant temp sensor. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!
