CHECK BLOWER FIRST, MAKE SURE IT IS NOT STOPPED UP AND NOT SHORTED OUT.

  2. On diesel models, remove the passenger side battery and battery tray.
  3. Remove the instrument panel by performing the following procedures:
    1. Remove the air bag control module (ACM) and bracket from the floor panel tunnel.
    2. Remove the trim from both cowl side inner panels.
    3. Remove the steering column-to-instrument panel opening cover.
    4. Remove the 2 hood latch release handle-to-instrument panel lower reinforcement screws and lower the handle to the floor.
    5. Disconnect the driver-s side air bag module wiring harness connector from the lower instrument panel reinforcement.
    6. Place the wheels in the straight-ahead position and lock the steering wheel. Remove the steering column without disassembling it.
    7. From under the driver-s side of the instrument, disconnect or remove the following items:

      Parking brake release handle linkage rod from the parking brake mechanism located on the left cowl side inner panel. Instrument panel wiring harness connector from the parking brake switch located on the parking brake mechanism. Three wiring harness connectors (body wiring harness, headlight, dash) from the 3 junction block connector receptacles located closest to the dash panel. Head light/dash-to-instrument panel bulkhead wiring harness connector screw and disconnect the connector. Instrument panel-to-door wiring harness connector located directly below the bulkhead wiring harness connector. Infinity sound system wiring harness connector (if equipped), located at the outboard side of the instrument panel bulkhead connector. Stop light switch electrical connector.

  4. If equipped with air conditioning, perform the following procedure:
    1. Discharge and recover the air conditioning system refrigerant.
    2. Disconnect the refrigerant lines from the evaporator. Plug the openings to prevent contamination.
    3. Disconnect the refrigerant lines from the accumulator. Plug the openings to prevent contamination.
    4. Remove the accumulator.

  5. Drain the cooling system into a clean container for reuse.
  6. Disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core tubes.

SOURCE: when i have the heater/defroster on the heater

It sounds like you have a blend air door stuck. This is in the housing of the heater a/c blower unit under the passenger side of the dash. There is a motor on the top of the housing that could possibly be stuck or on working.

SOURCE: I have a Doge Ram 1500. Am unable to get heater

You may need to add coolant to the cooling system, That is considered secondary and if the level is low the engine gets coolant priority, after you add check it again soon, as it may get air locked and once you drive it it may go low again, if that isn't the problem then you may need a thermostat is the engine warming up?

2010 Doge Nitro blows air towards windsheild not matter witch position the selector is in. Took it to the dealer and they said the Heater Housing and Control Head needed to be replaced. Suggestions


This seems to be a problem with the actuator for the mode door in the heater housing. It shouldn't require replacement of the heater housing, but may require a lot of work to get to the heater housing (possibly removal) to replace the actuator. If you want air to be directed to the floor or the dash vents, you will have to have the actuator repaired/replaced.

I have a 2010 Equinox that only blows air out of the defrost vents. Does anyone know what could be wrong?


Isn't air supposed to blow out of the defrost vents ? Otherwise, how is it supposed to defrost a window if it isn't turned on defrost. Does it blow air out when not on defrost ?

Heater only blows out defrost


The defrost position is the default for safety so that air always blows on the windshield in case of frost.
The most common problem is a faulty blend door under the dash.
In most cases the door must be calibrated with a scan tool if you replace it.

Heater not working on 2010 f-150


If both heater hoses are hot, and the radiator is full of coolant, it may be a blend door problem under the dash.
The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and out thru the vents.
It may still be under Ford warranty.

02 Mitsubishi Eclipse heater gets hot only when in motion


Does your engine temperature guage read normal? Have you checked your coolant level? This can be the result of a partially seized thermostat... there is also a valve in the heater core lines that can seize partially closed. As the engine speed increases, the water pump can force more water through the partially closed component.
