Your ignition switch needs to be replaced or computer needs to be reset or replaced. To reset the computer is easy, unhook the battery for a few minutes, rehook to vehicle hook up grd. cable first, then positive cable.

Why does my heater not work in my car the center console heater works but my dash heat does not but the buttons light up and you can hear it but doesnt blow out what is wrong ? i have am 1994 cadilac...


Behind the dash are tubes that carry the hot air to the different vents. When you select dash output, the buttons send an electric signal to motors to open flaps in these tubes. The buttons are lit, so they have sent the signal, it hasnt reached the motors or the motors are not turning the flaps, so the air does not get routed to the dash. That is what is wrong

Lights or fuse for my speed odemeter guage and heater/air conditioning system


These lights for the dash are controlled by a rheostat instrument control dimmer switch next to the main light switch for the headlights, it is either turned off (have seen this dozens of times) or it is defective. Below is a picture of the switch assembly I speak of. The thumb wheel next to the knob is the dimmer control.

Might check the drain on the air conditioning/heater case under the dash, if it's not draining the moisture out that may be your problem, clear the drain passage.

Why my window is fogging whe i turn the heater ?? i recently bought my toyota carina 3 model 1994 but the window is fogging , what should i do?


Make sure the vent system is set to draw air from outside. If it is set to recirculate the same air that's inside the vehicle without drawing fresh air from outside, the resulting humidity that builds up inside the vehicle can fog the windows even when you run the defrost. You can also try opening the windows a bit to get some more air moving inside.
If it still fogs when the vents are set properly, you may have a leaky heater core. The heater core is a small radiator that is located under the dash that the heater system blows air through to heat the inside of your car and provide heat to defrost the windshield. The fog may be coming from the heater core leaking hot coolant steam that's being circulated through the defrost system. If this is so, you will need to replace the heater core.

Sounds to me like the heater core is leaking again. If you're smelling antifreeze and the window fogs up then you're getting coolant into the heating system. Most likely cause is leaking hose to heater core or the heater core it's self.

How do i fix heater core on a 2006 chrysler 300


If you're getting hot air, it's not the heater core.

Windows fog up because the humidity level inside the vehicle increases while the temperature of the windows decreases to a point where the dew point of the air is higher than the temperature of the glass. When this happens, moisture from the air condenses onto the glass. When you breath out, you increase the humidity of the air in the car because of the moisture in your breath.

The key for defrost to work isn't necessarily heat, it's more important to dry the air. There are two ways of doing this:

1.) Make sure you have the air recirculation turned off. This feature causes your car to recirculate air from inside the car through the air ducts. In the summer when it's hot and humid outside, this is what you want. However in the winter when the air is dry, you want to bringing fresh dry air from outside to replace the humid air inside the car.

2.) Turn on the A/C compressor. This will cool the air before it passes through the heater core. Cooling air removes moisture. This is why your car drips water from underneath in the summertime when you run the A/C. It is literally removing moisture from the air.

However, if your heater isn't working (blowing cold air even when on the warmest setting), then you may have a different problem.
