Check to see what else shares the same fuse with the radio. If cigarette lighter is on it could be a penny or something stuck between the lighter and socket. That would be because when it is hotter the ac is working harder to cool the car, forcing the ac condenser to heat more. Make sure all fans are kicking on to cool it down. Most cars have two fans one for when ac is off and one for when its on. So make sure both are kicking on or that one is kicking on and off with two different speeds. You can hear the fans kicking on and off when the car is on in park. If you don't hear fans kick on check fan fuses, relays, and fan motors.

I have a 2000 jeep grand cherokee and my heater is not hot I checked the blend door behind glove box have flushed heater core and changed thermostat all is working wat else could it b

what engine? in WJ jeep.
Check all fuses yet>?
the water must be 180F or more, use a IR pyro gun aimed to thermostat housing yet,?
then check temp of both hoses,
all are 170F to 180f on a hot engine,
are both heater hoses hot , or just one, they must be equal and 170F +
did you scan the PCM first to see if there are HVAC errors.?
does the blower sound normal on high?
does the blower blow, fast in all modes? strong.
does the heater work fan off, and levers set to full hot, in non recirc mode(fresh air ) moving car fast? and all vent modes?. moving fast?

checking dampers with no fancy scan tools is hard.
The jeep dealer can even sends commands to dampers.
but even a cheap one reports the errors. why not scan it.

the pure physics
  1. the coolant (water) must reach full 180F+
  2. the coolant must flow though the core, un restricted.
  3. the blower must blow or car move fast to move air flow.
  4. thru the core.
  5. the core must not be damper blocked.
there are simple tests for each , the last is more tricky.

Do you have AZC, option, automatic zone control? that be a key
diagnostic fact, that (has unique parts)
if yes, did you do the self test yet? and the many error codes it can produce? fsm chapter 24 shows 63 fault codes.
tell more get more.....

fSm quote on that page, AZC

(1) Depress the A/C and Recirc buttons at the
same time and hold. Rotate the left temperature control
knob clockwise (CW) one detent.
(2) If you continue to hold the A/C and Recirc buttons
depressed, the AZC control module will perform
a Segment Test of the vacuum fluorescent (VF) display.
In the Segment Test you should see all of the
display segments illuminate as long as both buttons
are held. If a display segment fails to illuminate, the
vacuum fluorescent display is faulty and the heater-
A/C control must be replaced.
(3) After viewing the Segment Test, release the
A/C and Recirc buttons and the display will clear
momentarily. If a 0 is displayed, then no faults
are set in the system.

Hearter temp control was blowing too hot, now only blows cold

Clicking sound you hear is the worn brushes in your blower motor. At this point the blower moter may or may not start with the switch. THe blower motor is faulty so I would change that first, then check for vacuum leaks or faulty selector cable for the heat blend door. It could have came off door side or heater control side.

No that temperature is not too hot for your engine. The system is apperntly kicking in at 240 from what your saying and then it starts to cool itself down. One of your fans may be going bad if you keep blowing fuses.

The heater in our car is not blowing hot air. It

Check the heater hoses under the hood first to see if they are hot. if they are, there is a temperature control actuator on the top of the heater box. the motors go bad, and the temp door does not move. The motor is hard to get to but if you open the glove box it is to the left, almost behind the radio.

2005 Toyota Corolla air conditioner is cold but

The air flow does not 'increase' with the recirc button pressed. The fan motor blows at specific speeds, no matter whether fresh or recirc is selected. The recirc feature is there so that you do NOT admit 'fresh/hot' air from the outside into the AC box. In short, the recirc feature is to re-use, or, recirculate the existing air in the car. When it is properly working, on a hot day, the recirc selection should drop the internal temperature at the center air vent about 6 degrees lower than with the fresh selected.

Overheating and heater blowing cold air.

Heres the answer for the clicking sound

I had the exact same problem, yes it was the heater control valve, the repair was 285.00. The tech that replaced it told me it is a common problem for the Galant. He said that if you keep your temp selector on either all hot or all cold that it keeps constant pressure on the plastic gear teeth in the valve. As they break off one by one you begin to hear that clicking noise as the dont catch. When you finally break off the last one it stops working.

According to him if you always leave the dial at least one notch from fully hot or fully cold you will not experience a failure of the switch

2001 tahoe front heater not working, rear heater blows warm air

I have the same problem with my 2001 Tahoe. The front blower is working, its blowing strong, but its cold air even with the temp setting as high as it can get. The rear blows hot air. The engine temp guage is at about 210ish which is close to being normal (220). I just replaced the thermostate a few months ago, I don't know if its bad again, or it I deluted the antifreeze too much and it frooze the heater core, or if the heater core just went bad. Any one know what the cause could be?
