SOURCE: 2004 Ford Crown Victoria no air flow through main air vents

Chances are the electronic/digital HVAC control unit is bad. This same problem happened to me and I had to replace the entire unit. The dealer wanted to charge $800 for just the part! After I freaked out on them, they found a used one for less than half. Sorry, but there's no easy fix here.

SOURCE: There is no air flow

You need part GM Part number 89018675 or ACDelco 15-73596. The Mode Selector Actuator. What happens is the part is a CHEAP part POORLY designed and when it goes to turn the flaps inside the HVAC unit its the plastic gear slips instead of turning the flap!!!

Just to forward you you might want a deal to install this art for you unless your good at fixing your own vehicle, because you need SMALL sockets and a lot of patience to get this part in!!!

The part is ALMOST directly above the steering shaft for your steering wheel, so theres a lot you got to remove before you will even see them!!!

I only recommend you to have a dealer put this part in for you, unless you have your own service manual!!

Because there is 5 of these darn things and if you pick the wrong one you will have to do it all over again!!!

3 on the Drivers side and 2 on the Passengers side!!

But replacing this part SHOULD solve all your problems!! AS it did for me and i was having the same issues as you have described!!

SOURCE: No dashboard heat output

The climate control was poorly designed on these cars.

There is only heat on the floor and defrost settings, due to the layout of the ductwork.

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.

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

Is there a air filter for my ac/heater in my 2002 chevy blazer? if there is how do I access it? Also I seem to have some sort of nest(mouse I believe) in my venting sytem by my fan..any suggestions?


There is not a filter. Cleaning the problem of the pest can take awhile. And taking the dash out to get access to all the vents and conduit aint fun.

BAD ODOR WHEN TURN ON A/C OR HEATER


Dead field mouse or cat? Usually caused by build of smoking and other odors that stick to the condensation created by the a/c and eventually becomes kind of a permanent smell in the vents.

HI, you can check with your local parts supplier ( Napa, Advance, Auto Zone, ect). There are numerous products out that help get rid of the musty moldy smell that happens in the A/C systems. These products are sprayed into the evaporator cases either through a small opening or a drilled hole. If this doesn't help that wonderful little mouse may have found his way into the case and not made it out and then you will have to the case removed and cleaned out. good luck

If you want to do a good job you are going to have to pull the dash. Once it's out you will see every thing.

The heater has a musty smell,I suspect i need to


It sounds to me if you are having a "musty smell" then you might have a problem with your condensation drain line for you a/c system or a small leak on your heater core. If it is plugged then water will collect in the vent system causing a musty smell from the water not draining and if there is a small leak on the heater core then coolant can collect in the vent system. I would run the a/c on a warm day and look for water draining from the vehicle around where the dash is located to check the drain line. As far as your air cabin filter most are located behind the glove box. You usually need to remove the glove box to get to the filter.
