SOURCE: AC blow cold aire and after maybe 1/2 hour blow

  • Start the car and turn the air conditioning on. Allow the engine to run a few minutes so the air can cool. Check to make sure you have the proper buttons selected. This simple step may uncover the root of the problem.
  • See if the problem is as simple as a blown fuse. If the temperature controls on the dashboard seem to work correctly but have no effect on the air, then this is likely the problem. Find the interior fuse box in a Kia on the driver's side. It is located near the floor. Remove the kick board to get to it.
  • Check the control panel next in your Kia . If the air conditioning controls are not working at all, then the control panel is likely to blame. Remove the trim plate surrounding the center instrument panel. Detach the electrical connectors and remove the control panel.
  • Listen for the blower motor while the engine is running. The sound should increase when the air pressure is turned to high. Remove the blower motor by first unplugging the negative battery connection.
  • Find the blower motor in your Kia directly in front of the glove box. You should be able to get to the blower motor without removing the glove box. Unscrew the four screws holding the motor into place and pull it downward

    SOURCE: 2005 Kia Amanti; heater on driver side blowing cold

    For those of you who may google this link and are looking for an solution, my local repair shop isolated my 2005 Amanti problem to a $2.78 plastic clip on the temperature blend door actuator rod linkage. It simply fatigued and eventually broke resulting in the actuator rod falling off the actuator door lever. The labor to isolate the problem and to replace the clip did amount to almost $170. Hope this helps those of you in the future.

    Hi James,

    First, I guess you realize that the heater is part of your engine cooling system. Then it also has its own parts inside the vehicle that have absolutely nothing to do with the engine cooling system.

    The trick to getting your heater working is to first determine which part of the heater system has the problem.
    First, you need to verify proper engine cooling system operation. There is more to this than just replacing a thermostat. If you have a problem like a blown head gasket, you r heater will not work. What SHOULD be done is to operate the engine while watching the computer data for the engine coolant temperature sensor (ECT). Doing This, you can verify that the engine is warming up to operating temperature. You can also verify that the thermostat is opening at the correct temperature. Then take an infrared thermometer and take a manual reading from the engine near the temperature sensor. The reading you get from the thermometer should be within about 5 degrees of the reading that the computer is getting from the ECT. The engine cooling fans should come on between 220 and 228 Deg. F. When they do come on, the air that is blowing through the radiator should be HOT. If it is not, this is an indication that the radiator is stopped up, the water pump is not pumping correctly, or there is a blown head gasket that is filling your cooling system with combustion gasses. This can be done with just the thermometer, but it is best to also verify the ECT computer data.

    If all of this is working properly, then it is time to look INSIDE the car for the problem. The blend-air door in your A/C-heater housing may not be working. When you switch the temperature control inside the car, you should be able to HEAR a change in the air flow. This applies to ALL vehicles, whether they are equipped with cable, vacuum, or electronically controlled blend air doors. If you cannot hear a difference in the sound of the air moving through the A/C-Heater housing, then chances are pretty good that the problem is with your blend-air door. If this seems to be the problem, let me know and I can give you further instructions on how to check this and/or repair the problem.

    P.S. Just thought I'd mention that a pretty good infrared thermometer can be purchased at any parts store for around $40.....This is a very good investment because you can use it for many other things and is a lot cheaper than an hour of diagnostic time at most repair shops.

    SOURCE: 2003 kia sorento heater blows warm air only while driving at high speed

    Engines can rock on the motor mounts. You probably have a vacuum line that is pinched, cracked, broken,kinked, or unhooked. check the engine compartment lines first. If you have thin plastic vacuum lines, they can kink more easily than rubber lines. If you have been working under the dash (replacing a radio, etc) check your work area in case you have a broken fitting on a vacuum housing or an unhooked line.

    Stacey
    sounds like your blower motor is OK so either the hot water is not getting through the heater core, or the air is not being routed across the heater core. If the hoses or core are blocked, that would do it or if an air door is not allowing the air to the core.

    Hopefully it won't come to core removal, but this video should illustrate what is going on. There are also videos for unplugging the core. good luck

    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?

    My 1996 GMC Yukon does not have any heat, just blows cold air what could it be


    Check coolant level. if ok then see if engine comes up to temp. 190+ at thrmostat housing. If not, replace thermostat. If thermostat is ok, feeel heater hoses. If one is hot , and the other cold, then remove both and flush heater core. If both are hot, suspect blend door problem in heater box. probably need pro help for that.

    Heater does not work


    Seems like very little volume of water is reaching the heater core in the dashboard. Check the hoses that run from the cooling system into the firewall. One of these hoses might be bent or creased in a position that it impairs the normal flow of hot water into the dashboard.
