Wont switch off defrost vent

It takes 10 minutes on a cold day for my Mitsubishi Outlander to be able to switch from whatever direction the air was on the night before. i.e. if I left it on defrost, it won't switch to vents or floor until my truck is thoroughly warmed up for at least 10 minutes. What is my promblem and how do I fix it?

SOURCE: Vent control

You have a vacuum leak.Defrost is the default postion(no vacuum).
See if you can locate the small black vacuum line that goes inside the vehicle on the passenger side near the heater core. The trace it back,should see it going to a canister then to the intake manifold.Make sure it is not disconnected or broken somewhere.

SOURCE: PROBLEM WHEN SELECTING THE DIRECTION FOR THE AIR

Sounds like you have a supply vacuum problem. When you lose supply vacuum to the control head it defaults to defrost.

SOURCE: Dash vents will not blow air. Defroster and floor vents blow fine.

Is it a new vehicle? I had a new vehicle that had the same problem. Answer was that the holes weren't punched out of the vent.

SOURCE: Air is blowing out of defroster and floor but not main dash vents

Check for vacuum hose leak.

Check your coolant level when engine cold, low level coolant does not circulate very well at idle and will cause poor heating,at higher RPM water pump turns faster to help circulate.

Do i need to plug in my mitsubishi outlander in cold weather


if the engine has provision for coolant and oil heating for cold weather then it would be very advisable to use it
It stops slow oil circulation from very heavy oil and stops chances of the coolant freezing and cracking the block and heads .

Wont switch off defrost vent


This is only a guess but I bet it is literally freezing in position from moisture. Look for a spot where outside air is getting into the venting or even dripping water.

Oxygen sensor problem on mitsubishi outlander 2004


If the car has a check engine light on you may want to have the code checked, as this may point you in a direction as to what is causing this issue.

It could also be a bad EGR valve if the vehicle surges.

Hope this helps you out,
