1992 honda accord radio and ac stopped working


Make sure your fan is working properly. When you turn on the heater you are forcing the fan to cool the radiator. It may not be turning on automatically when it is supposed to. Let us know if this helps..

Car wont start, when i turn the key i only hear 1 click and the check charging system come on. all lights, radio, horn and heater come on


Sounds like the starter could be going bad or frozen. But before I did that I would check the battery to see if it has enough power to start the car. Your battery could have enough power to run radio and lights but not have enough cranking power to start the car especially if you are in a cold area. Low temperatures can cause your starter to freez and your battery to not crank the engine.

The heater went in my 2003 ford windstar, so I replaced the thermastat. Before all this there was a clacking sound when you turned the heater off down around the controller. Now the thermastat is replaed...


It's your blend door actuator which is sticking. Probably the plastic teeth on the cog inside are worn. It is white plastic and is located behind your radio. It controls the opening of your blend door from A/C (closed) to heat (open). Buy a Ford Windstar radio removal tool from any parts store (less than $10.00) remove the radio. You will then have access to the actuator. At the bottom right you will see a little plastic wheel with an indented square. Find a long flat head screwdriver that wil fit diagonally into the square and turn it clockwise slowly. The blend door should pop open and heat will enter the cabin. Finally when you have the time replace the unit. They sell for about $75.00 at the dealer or cheaper elsewhere. Good luck. This worked for me.

Is the horn heater radio all on the same relay and where would it be located on my 1989 yeep cherokee


9999 out of a 10000 ... no ... they should be separate. If they were on the same relay ... the heater would come on when you beeped the horn. If you turned on the radio, you wild beep the horn. ... and so forth. The heater is probably not on a relay nor is the radio. The horn is a heavy user of power and that is why it is on a relay.

I have a 2000 ford taurus and the radio quit working and the heater come on when you start the car and the heater is off


We have a 1998 Ford Taurus that has the radio in an oval bezel that has the heater controls also on it.

If this is like your vehicle, then when you remove the radio using two coat hangers shaped like a 'C' then you can see where the electrical connections go for the fan and the heater setting.

The radio in our 1998 Ford Taurus started to malfunction with the volume level not being adjustable.

After taking the radio out, and putting it back in, a week later the problem went away, mysteriously, and to my surprise.

Hope this helps.

Vent selctor works but vents dont change


the mode selector is actuated by Bowden cables. When you turn the selector switch, the cable winds on a spool and that rotates the mode door. the cable may have come off either end. You need a U shaped set of radio puller tools that go in the 4 holes in the front of the radio. Then you slide the Us to the outside to compress the clips and allow to pull the radio out. Then there are 4 screws to remove to remove the finish bezel. Then 3 screws hold on the climate control head.

With the radio out, you can rotate the selector knob and see what it is doing. If you remove a cable, rotate it counterclockwise fully before disconnecting it.

You can buy a whole head for $10 used at car-part.com. look on page with * for lowest cost part. You can use 2000-07 contol head.

Please rate, thanks

Air distribution operating cables
The air distribution switch operates with two Bowden cables. The cables operate the air distribution valves in the heater housing.
To remove and install the cables, the rotary switch must be turned as far as it will go to the left. The air flap mechanism engages easily in this position, making the installation of the cables easier.
-------------------------------------------------
  1. Remove the radio/cassette unit and the CD player (if equipped). For additional information, refer to Section 415-01 .
  2. Using a common radio remover, detach the audio unit.
  3. Insert the common radio remover into the locating holes. Pull the tools gently to the outside of the audio unit to release the locking tangs.
