2004 crv heater door

In our 2004 CRV there is no heat, AC OK. The hot water valve under the hood is now disconnected and wide open. The inlet and outlet hoses are both hot so I think there is flow. Is there a swing door to balance cold and cold air? Could it be stuck in the AC side? Where is it located? Vacuum or electric operated?
Thanks Ron

Most vehicles are vacuum actuated heat and A/C under dash and the blend door on your is staying closed and covering the heater core so no heat can enter. The blend door vacuum line is most likely crimped closed or disconnected. Look on top of the heater box for said actuator and the door hinge to check it. You may be able to see it even.

SOURCE: PCV valve for 2004 Hona CRV

PCV Valve Operation: 0900823d80049deb.jpgA vacuum-controlled metering device that regulates the flow of crankcase fumes in the positive crankcase ventilation system by allowing more flow at high speed than at low speed, and acts as a system shutoff in case of engine backfire to prevent an explosion in the crankcase.
Depending on your engine size, the PCV is a different style and slightly different location.

Usually they are mounted in a hole on your valve cover.... connected by a vacuum tube.
Some are mounted with threads into the engine block (usually by the oil filter)

On the '04 Crv - it is nearly inaccessible behind the AC compressor and beneath what looks like an old vacuum advance. Most PCV valves today do not need to be replaced, unless there is actual valve failure, which I have not seen happen. I would not be concerned about replacing it.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

SOURCE: CRV headlights

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

SOURCE: location of Idle control valve on 04 CRV

It's not a easy job but I'm pretty sure you had one of those problems where the idle surges if this is the case take out the air intake tube that leads to the throttle body, get a can of carburetor fluid and spray around the throttle body. You will need someone to start the car and hold the gas peddle to 2500 rpm while you do this the car will shut of when you do this, restart the car and repeat the process until half of the can is used up. Now check your antifreeze level fill if needed and reset you check engine light. Now you can take the idle air back and get your money.

Heater will not blow hot air


The water inlet valve may not be letting water in, the heater core and hoses may be plugged or the engine thermostat may be stuck open. These are the things to check under the hood. The mix door may be letting cold air inside to mix with hot air from the heater.

Honda crv 2012 heat on driver side doesn't get hot but passenger side does


Just got my 2012 CRV out of the Honda shop yesterday; it blew cold air out the vents while the engine was completely warmed up.
Honda has a service bulletin on it; the heater core must be flushed several times (there's a flush kit that Honda has provided).
After the flushing, I had all the heat I ever needed.
The REAL problem is this: Honda or the dealer can't tell what the cause of no heat. Is it corrosion/air pocket/bad anti-freeze???
Asked the dealer to inspect the bottom of the bucket when they flushed it if there is debris. "Well, the water is swirling around the bucket, so we couldn't see any debris".

2005 town and country heat does not work it only blows warm air i changed the thermostat and its still the same


No.
There are no heater control valves of years gone by. And if the water pump was not pumping the engine would run very hot.
If the radiator is full, and the thermostat is working, the heater hoses should be hot, and the problem could be a faulty blend door under the dash. The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and the ac evaporator as well as the vents.

1997 Honda CRV temperature gauge spikes to Hot


You have to thank the Gauge that shuts down your engine when hot bec. it wont knock...you have to clean your radiator and see if the coolant inside it run through the radiator holes to the engine water jacket to make sure your engine will not over heat...For the fans, find the fan relay...it's under the hood in the fuse box...

The heater on my 2004 mercury mountaineer does not work. When turning the dial from ac to heat, cold air blows out while a sound like a door opening and shutting is heard.


there is a vacuum ran valve on your heater hoses goin in to your heater core on the fire wall, they tend to get stuck shut n dont open to let hot anti freeze in the heater core, so cold air right, qwik fix is find the valve on heater core inlet and wire tie it open so antifreeze circulates no matter what, this is known on ford explorers. pretty much same truck.

No heat engine gets warm but heater wont switch from ac to heat


Start searching for a vacuum leak. The dash switch operates a vacuum assembly - but if the line is cracked, it "door" will not change position.

2005 chevy truck a/c works cant get heat blows cold


This sounds like a valve problem, or a heater/ cool air door stuck.
Many GM vehicles, have under the hood, a valve, it is electronic or vacuum controlled. When you switch the lever to heat, this valve opens, thus letting hot water flow through to the heater core.
On some newer models, there is a door (flap so to speak) within the interior compartment. This flap opens and closes between heater core and interior, thus controlling hot air flow.
Have you check to insure there is sufficient coolant in the system?
Low coolant levels will also cause no heat, but will also show signs of engine running warmer, sometimes much warmer than it should.
The valve under hood was as used on my 1995 Astro van. the mechanism looked to work as you could see shaft move in and out, problem was the diaphram or flap in valve on end of shaft (inside valve and not visible) was detached.
The other method, interior door or flab within heater box assembly was a problem on my 1998 Ford Expedition.
Yours, being GM, I would check for this valve under hood. It will be somewhat obvious in most cases as it will have heater tubes running into it and from it into firewall.

What fuse # controls the in cabin fans on a 2004 Honda CRV?


The fuse box is located under the steering wheel to the right. A diagram on the back of the removable door should show you which fuse to check. You will likely need a pair of needle nose pliers to reach/pull the the fuses, they're recessed beyond the opening.
