The knob is probably broken. It should work after you replace it a good one.

2002 sonoma air temperature stays hot when i turn the control knob. A/C works fine,but the air does'nt get cooler when I turn the knob


Easiest place to start is checking for a broken control knob. Pull the knob off and see if it is cracked/broken on the back side. You can turn the metal control rod then by hand to see if it works. If no problem found there, you will have to check for a blend door motor/actuator that controls heat/cooling attached to the heater box under the dash for proper operation

Where is the air and heat blend motor on a 2000 dodge dakota?


Hi Sharon, I'm glad to help. Your 2000 year doesn't have a motor for the temp door. It operated by a cable running from the control head to the temp door and you work it manually. If you can't control the temperature from hot to cold, sometimes the cable come off or breaks. Here how you can see the cable to see if its working. Remove the radio and right behind it you will see the cable attached to the door, while watching it move the temp lever from hot to cold and watch it. If it is moving then its most likely out of ajustment. If it is not moving, then you'll need a new cable. Just in case it is moving, I'm attaching the instruction on how to adjust it below. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Sharon!



TEMPERATURE CONTROL CABLE

Any time the heater-A/C control or the temperature control cable are removed and/or replaced, the following procedure must be performed.
  1. The temperature control cable housing and core must be installed at both the heater-A/C control and the heater-A/C housing ends, and the heater-A/C control must be installed in the instrument panel. See Heater-A/C Control and Temperature Control Cable in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.
  2. Rotate the temperature control knob on the heater-A/C control so that the knob pointer is in the 12 o'clock position.
  3. Pull the temperature control knob straight out from the heater-A/C control base until the perimeter of the knob (not the knob pointer) protrudes about 6 millimeters (0.25 inch) from the face of the control base.
  4. Rotate the temperature control knob to the 1 o'clock position. Push in on the knob slightly and continue rotating the knob to its full clockwise stop. The knob pointer should be aimed at a position about 8 millimeters (0.315 inch) beyond the end of the graduated red strobe temperature control graphic on the face of the heater-A/C control base. If the knob is not pointed to the correct position, go back to Step 2 and repeat the adjustment procedure.
  5. Rotate the temperature control knob counterclockwise until the knob pointer is in the 12 o'clock position again.
  6. Push the temperature control knob straight in towards the heater-A/C control base until the perimeter of the knob (not the knob pointer) is flush with the face of the heater-A/C control base.
  7. Rotate the knob to its full clockwise stop again. The knob pointer should be aimed at the end of the graduated red strobe temperature control graphic on the face of the heater-A/C control base. If OK, go to Step 8. If not OK, go back to Step 2.
  8. Rotate the knob to its full counterclockwise stop and release the knob. If the knob springs back from the counterclockwise stop, the self-adjuster clip that secures the temperature control cable to the blend-air door lever is improperly installed. See Temperature Control Cable in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures. If the knob does not spring back, the temperature control cable adjustment is complete.

Why doesnt control f150 ford turn from heat to ac on f150 ?


It is possible that your control head is not working properly. The center knob( temperature control ) may be positioning the temperature door to full heat. If you have all of the directional flows and the off position, this is probably the problem. You can remove the control head easily by removing the cover plate by pulling outward evenly at the control face. This will reveal 4 screws that hold the control in place. Remove screws and pull slightly out on the control head(do not pull out far as you could damage electrical connections and/ or vacuum connection. Temperature switch is held on by a single screw on the back of the control. remove screw, turn counter clockwise and pull control from the knob that is now holding the switch in place. Replace switch and assemble back into the dash, locate flat on the knob and the switch, align and press into place.

If you are in the South east Michigan area I will be glad to assist.

Temperature knobs won't change temperature Chevy Tahoe


You likely have a HVAC control head failure. The rear heater problem is likely a door actuator, the rear wiper is likely a open wire in the door jamb in the top. The gauges are likely a cluster failure.

Heat not working


Try locating the heater hoses. Start with the vehicle cool and turn it on and wait till the engine temperature reaches the correct temperature. This should send fluid through the heater hoses. Feel the heater hoses for a change in temperature. If there is no change in heat after a while the problem is in your thermostat. If one heater hose is hot while the other is not than the problem is in the heater block. If both hoses are heating up then the problem is probably in the climate control knobs or wiring that controls the blend doors or may even be the blend doors are broke and are not opening correctly to allow heat into the vents. This could also be a problem if the ac does not get cool either.

The temperature control for the heating and air


sounds like a bad blend door motor common problem. bolted to side of heater box.good luck.

No heat. Blower works fine. Noticed that the temperature control knob is not illuminated. All other knobs are illuminated. The outside/recirc air actuator is working properly.


If the blower is blowing air just fine, but you cannot control the temperature, you need to listen to air coming from the vents while turning the temperature from hot to cold. If you do n ot hear any change in airflow, then you may a temperature door in the dash broken. this is becoming a common problem on the Equinox

Temperature control knob won't turn to heating mode


You have to locate the cable between the heater core box and dash control knob most likely it is hung up someplace in between if you can straighten it out it will give you more cable length also look to see there may be a loose spring that need to be reattached.
wear safety glasses and get a good light you will need screw drivers needle nose pliers snap ties to hold cable in place

The ac won't work right


The first knob controls the temperature. Turning it counterclockwise will lower the temperature, clockwise will raise it. Pressing the button will turn on the circulate function (recirculates the air from the cabin).
The second knob controls the fan speed. Counterclockwise will reduce the fan speed, clockwise will increase it. Pressing the button activates the A/C compressor (allows colder temperatures).
The third knob controls the flow direction. Each picture indicates where the flow will go. Pressing the button activates the rear defoggers (in some models, it will also activate the heated side mirrors).
