My air wont blow out of upper vents only dash on my 2000 jeep cherokee

This may be due to a bad actuator motor or vacuum leak, this all depends on what type of system is in this jeep, open the hood and start the engine allow it to get warm and look and listen, you want to look for a vacuum hose thats off or leaking, this hose goes onto a port on the intake and goes to the pass/side firewall where it goes through the wall and inside to controls, listen for a hissing sound.The hiss noise is what a broken line sounds like,if this system is actuator controlled then there will be no vacuum lines, instead it uses about four actuator motors to control the heater system settings, the actuators are located on the heater box, the box is located under the dash area. and sits from driverside to pasengerside, i will see if i can locate a diagram to help you, this is a little to locate the bad actuator as there are so many, but a good way is to locate one by one and watch it as you move each control of the heater system and see if it moves, you will do this to each actuator until you locate the one that doesnt move, that will be the bad one,i think yours is vacuum operated. this diagram shows the box and some vacuum operated valves. good day and hope this info helps.johnjohn2_111.gif

Location of blend door or actuator on chrysler concorde 94 ?

The temperature door actuator is located at the bottom of the heater housing at the center terminal. It looks like this:

To remove the actuator
  1. Remove the left and right underpanel silencer ducts.
  2. Remove the two retaining screws from the actuator which are accessible from the right side of the center stack.
  3. Remove the screw from the actuator on the left side.
  4. Pull the actuator straight down from the shaft and disconnect the electrical wire. Upon removal, matchmark the shaft position of the actuator, because the shaft on this motor is keyed.

I have a 2002 Chevy Silverado 8 cylinder 4wd extended cab. It has the push button shifter for 4wd. When I try to use 4WD Auto or 4WD Hi, the indicator lights come on but the 4wd does not engage. I read...

Fuse is located at the end of eh dash on drivers side and the Actuator is located at the front differential and on the passenger side.
When in 4wd mode, a switch on top of the transfer case conducts 12 volts out to the actuator. Wire #50 (brown) is the 12v feed, and it conducts to the light blue wire (#900) to the actuator.
When shifted out of 4wd, the switch opens up and no voltage goes to the actuator.

Check voltage at the connector for the front actuator (at the front differential - it looks like a large bullet that threads into the front diff.) If it has 12 volts, the actuator is the problem. If it does not have 12 volts, check the transfer case switch and the power feed to the transfer case.

I'll assume it is the actuator, if the plug to the actuator is getting 12 volts when in 4wd.
The way this actuator works, is it is a sealed chamber that gets heated by voltage. When it heats, the pin in the end swells and pushes a shift fork in the front differential. The shift fork engages a spline on the passenger side of the differential, and boom! you have 4WD.

GM offered an upgrade to this actuator that is a motor instead of a heated device. However, it requires a small harness addition, a spacer, and a new actuator. It is about a $150 to $200 option.

Good luck. The actuator is usually the problem 90% of time but recheck all of the wire harness just to maker sure there is no short before replacing any parts. The actuator may not be fully engaged or disengaged and the fork to the spline may be what is causing the grinding.



Obtain the following GM part numbers:
(1) 26060073 Actuator
(1) 88959465 Harness/Spacer Kit
