There is a spray you can get from most auto parts stores that sprays directly into the vents to control odors. If the problem persists, you may have to remove the heater motor to inspect for droppings/dead rodent.

I have a 2006 trailblazer and none of my dash vents work. The front vent went awhile ago but now defrost and floor vents don't work either. Could it be multiple actuators?

it sounds like you may have a clogged hvac system. if there is a cabin air filter you can check that as they get clogged, also a rodent nest under the cowl panel is possible as they like to nest in the air intake for the hvac but usually there will be a smell. I would check under the cowl cover and see if there is a problem with the air intake first off.

I have a 1999 Acura CL. My defroster does not work nor will the air blow on the floor. Now my heater is blowing cold air? Any suggestions?

check for a rodent nest in the hvc system, they usually get in from the air intake for the hvac system which should be located on the passenger side under the cowl cover. if you have a cabin air filter they love to chew those up and make a nest in it.

Toyota D4D 2007 Verso Side Blows Cold Air driver side warm in passenger side

the best first thing to do is check for a rodent nest in your system, look into the hvac air intake which should be under the cowl cover on the passenger side. if there is debris in there you have a rodent nest which needs cleared out. if your vehicle has a cabin air filter this is where the intake for the hvac is.

A/C Vent problem, black pieces of honey comb like filter blow out of A/C vents. How do I fix this?

Sounds like you have a Rodent in your heating system! It is actually common and can pose a health risk by blowing Rodent dropping and dried drippings in your face.

2008 impala, terrible nauseating odor from heater

sounds like a mouse nest in hvac system, no smell because when using ac it doesn't use outside air, probably a nest on the screen at the hvac air intake or if you have a a cabin air filter check in there. many times rodents make nests have babies and then the car moves and they cannot feed the babies and so they die and rot smell comes into car. usually it is not hard to access because there should be a screen between the outside and inside under the cowl cover, if no screen and the little buggers vot into your hvac duct system this could be a much bigger problem entailing removal of dash completely. most likely this isn't the case, good luck

Mice in my heater .how do i clean it out

I know this is pretty old, but I've been able to get to my blower motor WITHOUT removing the entire dash. If you take out your glove box and shine a light up above where the air filter is, you can see a round plastic piece with a wire and a little tab on it. Just push the tab, rotate the piece and disconnect the wire. The trick is getting it around your side vent tube, but with a little wiggling not too hard. I live in the country and had to fish 2 hand fulls of insulation out of my blower motor due to mice.8 screws hold the glove box on.

Noise and burning smell from heater

Pine needles get into the heater box and clog the heater fan motor's "fan".
You also may have rodents in there,making nests.
The wife was smart to turn off the heater fan B-4 the fuse blew.

The defrost and the floor vent does not work in my 2005 Dodge Neon... It sounds like the air is blowing in the dashboard, but does not come out of the vents

If there is no vacuum to the mode door control motor theheater/A/C system will default to "Defrost" If there is no air coming out the vents or floor - check to see if you have air blowing out the defrost vents. If there is air coming out the defrost, then the most likely cause of your problem is a broken or disconnected vacuum line that feeds the mode control switch. On your vehicle, the vacuum supply line connects to the brake booster hose under the hood. there is a check-valve on the line between the firewall and the brake booster that can fail and leak vacuum. if there is no problem with the vacuum supply line under the hood, then the most likely cause is a bad mode control switch. (switch leaking vacuum)

If there is no air coming out the defrost vents, but you can hear the blower motor running, there is most likely a resriction of airflow etween the blower motor and the air outlet plenum. I have seen A/C evaporators completely cloggedup that will not pass any air. I have also seen paers and napkins that have gotten sucked out of the glovebox area and into the "Recirc" air inlet. Another thing I have seen several times is nests made by mice or other small rodents in the blower motor housing.
