One of the actuators is bad, or the door that the actuator is trying to move is stuck, a shop will need to ck it out for you and recommend what needs to be done.

Car stalls


I have a 1994 Volvo 850 that did the same thing. It was the fuel pump relay, a $50 part that is easy to replace yourself. It could also be the thermostat ($75) in the air flow box. Some people remove the bad thermostat and fix the air flow tube in the position with the air flow coming in from the front of the car. People say you can freeze your engine in winter if you live in a cold climate. It rarely gets cold where I live so it wasn't a problem for me. You do get better gas mileage without that thermostat. I ran my car without the thermostat for about a year and then put a new one in because I started having rough idling problems when the engine had not warmed up yet. The thermostat funnels in hot air from the manifold (?) until the engine warms up and then the spring in the thermostat closes off the tunnel with that hot air flow and opens up the tunnel with the cooler air flow coming in from the front of the car. If the thermostat quits working, the hot air keeps coming in and the engine shuts off after about 10 minutes of driving. The car will usually start right up after you wait a few minutes. These symptoms don't usually show any engine codes.

Heater and air condioning switch keeps making clicking noise


The noise is one of the actuators that moves the air flow doors into different positions. Common problem. When the noise happens, move the temp. control from cold to warm. If the noise goes away, it is the temp. actuator. Or, press the recirculation button to go from fresh air to recirc. If the noise goes away, it is the recirc. actuator. Or, change the mode from vent to heat. Could be the mode actuator. Usually the temp actuator acts up.

Hi i have a 2000 kia sportage and we replaced the thermostat the heater core and the car still blows cold air what else can it be


could be the tap that turns the water to pass thru the heater core is not opening up so the heater core is being bypassed. look at your heater core hoses under the bonnet see if there is a tap in one of them and if so check to see if it opens when you turn to hot inside the car with heater controls

Why do I get frost on the inside of my windows? This generally happens in winter (I live in Wisconsin) overnight and during the day when I am at work.


sometimes if the windows are down just a crack air gets in or the rubber and the door jambs are not properly making enough contact allowing air to pass through the vehicle ...

after being driven especially and the car is warm inside and when the cool air hits causes a frost ..if you hear any wind noise coming from the vehicle while driving this is where it comes from .

it is possible to bend the door but is best left to professionals to do this "its called tweaking the door'

Did you hear a little rythmic squeaking noise under the dash by the driver's right knee? Is the noise now gone? There is a little oscillating air flow gate there that often goes bad...I can't remember the name of the part, for the life of me, but the dealer has them.

Air Condition acting wierd - 1997 Ford Explorer


Below, I've pasted instructions for the Control Cable adjustment.

Function Selector And Temperature Selector Control Cable To check the temperature cable adjustment, move the temperature control lever all the way to the left, then move it all the way to the right. At the extreme ends of lever travel, the door should be heard to firmly seat, indicated by a loud thumping sound, allowing either maximum or no air flow through the heater core. To check the function cable adjustment, see that the function lever will reach the detents at the far left and right of its travel. In addition, check that the air flow is correct when the function lever is moved through each detent provided in the control assembly. If cable adjustment is needed, proceed as follows:
  1. Disengage the glove compartment door by squeezing its sides together. Allow the door to hang free.
  2. Working through the glove compartment opening, remove the cable jacket from the metal attaching clip on the top of the plenum by depressing the clip tab and pulling the cable out of the clip.
The adjustable end should remain attached to the door cams.
  1. To adjust the temperature control cable, set the temperature lever at COOL and hold. With the cable end attached to the temperature door cam, push gently on the cable jacket to seat the blend door. Push until resistance is felt. Reinstall the cable to the clip by pushing the cable jacket into the clip from the top until it snaps in.
  2. To adjust the function control cable, set the function selector lever in the DEFROST detent and hold. With the cable end attached to the function cam, pull on the cam jacket until cam travel stops. Reinstall the cable to the clip by pushing the cable jacket into the clip from the top until it snaps in place.
  3. Install the glove compartment.
  4. Run the system blower on HIGH and actuate the levers, checking for proper adjustment.
Should the Control Cable turn out fine, then it's most likely to be the Blower Motor Resistor. It's a common Ford issue where some fan speeds fail in Ford's climate control but others work. In your case, it appears the lower speed is failing.
An illustration of the Blower Motor Resistor is linked to below.
Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the wire connector from the resistor assembly.
  3. Remove the 2 screws attaching the resistor assembly to the blower or evaporator case and remove the resistor.
  4. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Check the blower motor for proper operation in all blower speeds.
Best of luck with your problem!
Greg

1994 saturn no air flow to front defroster


I bet that the slider control is not working properly, look on the drivers floor under the dash by the center console, you should see a diverter lever that moves when you select the air flow position. The cable may be disengaged or the lever can sometimes stick, or it just may need adjustment. you can manually detatch the cable and move the diverter control lever to see if the baffle inside the housing is functioning correctly to direct the air flow to the windshield. If any of the above do not function, a trip to your local junk yard may help with replacement parts for a reasonable price, assuming your a hands on type person. Good luck
