1998 how to manually swith from Heather To AC can anyone help and also what part needs to b change it blows air but it's stuck on the heather


Under the dash is the heat box and it has two levers on it. One is for changing where the air comes out (floor, vents, defrost) the other is the BLEND door and that controls hot and cold. Look for the levers on the door, move the controls and see which one is not moving or if they both move it could be the DOOR inside the box that is broken off.

Can't switch interior heat from dash to defrost on 2001 montana


The problem will be on the other side under and just to the right of the steering column. This is kind of a pain to repair. Pull the lower cover off from under the steering column. Watch the lever on the hvac case move as you click the position switch to defrost and back. It most likely is hanging up and not moving into defrost position. Reach up there and just move the lever or arm a little and it will probably finish it's movement. The arm has worn to a point where it has a little slot in it that is preventing or stopping the movement.
I have repaired this but you gotta watch it several times. The lever is spring loaded so you need to watch closely or you won't get it back together right.
I got the thing out and smoothed the worn place where the lever started working again. It's not real easy to get out so be careful. Can't really tell you anymore than that.

Air Conditioner Will not turn on Recirculation


there is a selector motor on the side of the heat ac coil box under the dash. it should have 2 or 3 levers on the side of it. it controls the dampeners the select where your air is moving to from the defrost to the bi level to the floor or all of the above find that control module and then turn the car on and start moving the selector switch back and forth slowly while watching that module if its moving the levers then you have a more serious problem and need to have a professional look at it. check to make sure that the levers are even connected and that the wiring harness is even hooked to the control module

1992 chevy g20 van ... AC blows through the lower ducts but not the mail cabin vents. What do I look for to fix this?


Behind the dash, when you throw the lever to change which vents you want air to come through, it can sometimes "slip" over little plastic gears/levers which flip the ductwork to different vents such as floor to the dash vents or defrost. look up from under the dash to see if the vent control switch is actually moving anything underthere.

Defrost blows constantly? How do i fix it?


does it blow through the defrost vent only when you switch to vent/floor or does it blow through defrost and vent/floor? is it a switch that is just electric or a manual lever that you slide? the manual type will have that problem if the diverter or the linkage behind the lever(in the dash behind the panel......may be able to access underneath) becomes broken or disconnected so that the air is diverted to defrost regardless where you move it.if you can get to it, you will see what is broken or maybe a fastenerr fell off.

I HAVE A 2001 DODGE DURRANGO THE DEFROSTER IS NOT BLOWING ANY AIR OUT OF TOP OF DASH BUT SEEMS TO BLOW OUT OK ON ALL VENTS AND FLOOR


it sounds like the switch lever for the vents, floor and defrost is not switching the vent door that goes to the defroster hose. You need to pull the switch consol out loose from the dash and follow the cable for the defrost that goes to the hose for the defrost. You might also have a broke switch that won't pull the cable enough to open the air for the defrost hose.

Check the control cable that operates the diverter door in the heater box at both ends, to make sure that it operates the door when you move the control lever.

Heater only blow out the vents


There are servos that move air control gates, some were controlled electrically, and some were vacuum. It sounds like there's a vacuum line off the vacuum reservoir under the hood, or a vacuum line has came off one of the servo diaphragms.

93 ford festiva heater only blows cold air.


The heater only blows HOT air when set on defrost or floor settings. If you have the lever set for vent, only cold air will come out. Check to make sure you set the controls to floor or defrost. This is standard for all Festiva's.
