Defrost mode will always work since it makes air warm simply by channeling the heat generated by the engine. The hot air for the cabin is heated by passing current through the heater coil. So the heater may be require to be replaced it with the same wattage as before. There is also an air-vane which swivels as per the setting which must be jammed and therefore unable to allow the air to flow around the heater assembly into the cabin.

Check your fuses first. Also do the vents switch to other positions even if blowing cold air. If so the vent control is working. Next try your temperature control. Does it move freely and does the air when car is warmed up feel any different (warmer). If it moves freely and no change check the control valve. This should be located in a heater hose see if the control on it moves when moving temp. control knob. If not cable or vacuum source to vave is bad, If it moves the heater control valve in the heater hose needs to be removed and checked. If it opens and closes when worked manually the heater core is most likely clogged. If it doesn't open and close the control valve needs replaced. Refill car with coolant when done. Also check and make sure car is warming up properly. If the radiator shows coolant flow when cold the thermostat is stuck open causing car not to warm up properly. This is not the problem if the air is very cold.

It has to do with the heater core, located behind the dash. The heater core is a small radiator.
The heater core has two valves that must be checked. Sometimes the heater core is blocked inside and must be replaced alltogether.
The heater core repair is quite complicate because to reach the heater core you have to take apart the dash completely after flushing engine coolant fluid:

    The temp adjust control is just a switch, and can be tested using a voltmeter. If the control is not working, replace the control.


    Most of the time you need to replace the heater core.

    Check the air system and fan housing located under the dashboard on passenger side , under the glove box. Behind the glovebox, you should see a plug connector. Remove the plug, then remove the 2 screws holding the electrical component to the housing. Slide the new one into the opening, and reattach the connector plug.
    Before doing the job better getting a service manual for your vehicle.Chrysler Town And Country Repair Manual - Chilton, HP, Haynes

What would cause the heater to blow cold almost all the time on a 1993 Lincoln Town car?


If it is as you read the door control will be activated by a vacuum unit . Check for hoses that are missing cracked or broken. Move the control fro heat to cold and see if the door moves. The next thing to check is if the thermostat is not stuck open. Start the engine cold and see if the top radiator runs cold for say 10 minutes after which the hose should noticeably get hot quickly.

My 2006 Ram 2500 Diesel cab heater blows cold are out the driver's side vents and hot air out the passenger side. I can't get the cab warm in the winter unless I place the heater in recircula


CHECK all the vent hoses, are they connected, no ob strucctions, when the last time you replaced the cabin air filter ? do you have one? look @ your owners manual, also, you may need to have several heater controls, or other control on as well, see owners manual, anything fall into the defroster vents ? replace thermostat @ engine. see how this works for you, good luck

2005 chrysler town & counry constantly blows hot in front


I'd lean more toward the blend door actuator. I've experienced that problem more often with Grand Caravans (aka Town and Countries) and Pacificas. Usually, if it's a resistor, it's the blower motor resister, which means you wouldn't get any air movement at all.

The only thing I can't recall off hand is if Chrysler services the actuator separate from the blend door housing on these models. However, I'm sure that's what you will need as the blend door is what regulates the mixture of cool and hot air. Keep in mind this is not the mode door actuator or housing. That's something completely different that directs the air to different paths (vent, floor defroster, etc.)

Contact Chrysler as I believe these are only available OEM last I checked.

your clue that it is ridiculously hot indicates that the problem is in the climate control module

Could be the control switch itself. Or possibly the actuator that moves the door from defrost to heater. With the heater on, try switching from defrost to heat and try to hear if you can hear anything in the dash operating.
