Question about 1994 Acura Integra

The slide lever on the heater/ac controls doesn't work right. It sometimes gets stuck on and if you slide it to off, you can't turn it back on.

This is due to a calbe operated control. If you look under the hood on the passenger side behind the engine right next to the firewall you will see a small cable that resembles a throttle cable on a mower. The end attaches to a heater valve. Either the heater valve is rusted and operating poorly or the cable is rusted. You can remove the cable from the valve and manually turn the heater valve to see how freely it turns. If it turns freely by hand then it the cable, if not it's the valve. You can try to use some WD-40, I recommend PB Blaster just because it's non flammable and does not collect dirt and dust like other petroleum distillates products like WD-40

It is a solid cable in a sheathe that is bent, and it won't ever work right unless it clamped down at the bend and held, you might try that, but it is tricky, my daughter's nissan got bent and I had a heck of a time getting it to work right. Finally got it. A drop of oil in there won't hurt any either, but you have to get to it first. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Why is 1986 toyota pick up temperature control slide on heater stuck in center and wont slide to the left to cool


Check the hard wire that moves the heater damper flap, it often gets bent and will get stuck in one position, hot or cold. Commonly sheathed in a blue plastic ~1/8" tube. Both ends can get bent if there is excessive gunk buildup at the ends or on the lever arms (rust, dirt, dried soda, etc.) They also just come loose after time and slide in the pinch clips that hold them in place. Be VERY careful if it is bent and requires straightening. The wire is strong enough for a few bends, but don't over-do it!

Your rear turn signal flashes fast because the front is not working. Most likely you have a burnt out bulb in the front. If your A/C compressor can be turned over by hand and doesn't lock up or make any clanking sounds it's probably alright. The compressor will not run if the system is low on refrigerant. If you're having problems with the A/C and heater controls, that would be the first ting to repair. It doesn't sound at all like any electrical problems.

My ac was working fine then one day it stopped and now only hot air blows out the mechanic said the ac is fine and works good but there is a vent door that switches the ac to heater and he said it was...


There is a blender that controls the air flow to go through the heater core for heat, and the evaporator for AC. It very well could be stuck.

You maybe able to try and get it to get unstuck by running the cars AC and switching from heat to AC back and forth and see if it gets unstuck. Just turn it on full blast and go from heat to cool.

If that fails, then you may need to service it. There should be a Lever Marked VENT under the dash, usually by the Brake and other pedals on the Driver's Side. Close the VENT and that will stop the Air from coming in and leave the A/C Blowing through the outlets(Vents).

I also read this online if you have an electronic climate control. "On climate control press off and heat button and let go quickly. Then press automatic. The display will start rotating eventually displaying a code 025,125 , 024 etc. Then press defrost to stop. You may hear blend door operating atb that time. It worked for my climate control."

AC/Heater control valve :Lancer 2003 Misubishi


The sliding switch on the console is stuck in the cold position and the knob is pulled off. Use pliers to jiggle the switch as best you can. Feel under the center console and you probably will find the cable that is hooked up to the flapper. You'll know because when you jiggle the cold/heater switch at the upper console, the cable will move slightly. At the hookup of the cable to the flapper down under the console (passenger side) try to work the flapper loose to the open (or close) position. At the same time work the sliding switch (with pliers). The flapper will come loose and function properly. Try not to knock of the AC button like I did in the process. It flew off some where under the passenger seat. I'll find it sometime before summer. Ha.

When puting heater on cool browing hot air


There is a door attached to the cable behind the levers on the heater controls. The cable goes to the heating unit under the dash to a trap door that is supposed to move. You will want to look to see that the cable is attached and moving the lever on the side of the blower box under the dash. If its not moving, move it manually and see if you get temperature change to cool. Probably, your heater is stuck on and hot air is being carried over the heater core and into the vehicle. You need to close off the door that allows the heat into the vehicle and then trace the cable back to the lever to find out where the problem is. Maybe a broken or disconnected cable or improper closing heater box door.

Chevy TrailBlazer heat won't shut off


most gm cars use electrily controled temp actuator door on top of center of heater case . if move the temp lever to hot or cold you should see the door arm move sometimes the arm will move but the door dosent there is three wires too the motor one 12 volt one ground and one return to the hvac modle head controls there are different colors for the return wire.basically you can un hook the arm and move it manunlly to see if it makes a difference at the vent while the ac system is on.the way test for the problem is to check the voltage on the return wire at the motor and ground with a dvm meter you should see a vary voltage when slide temp controls from hot to cold . more than likey it is hvac control head but check first they are costly.
