Probably a door not working. Check under dash for which actuator controls temp. Change temp setting and see what actuator tries to move. I think it might be the electric motor, #14 below. Take the actuator off and see if door will rotate by hand. If not, you'll have to free it up--might have to take the box out and open it. If it moves OK by hand, the actuator probably has stripped gears or keyway on the drive shaft. Repair as necessary.

Getting heat in the back of the car but not in the front.


I would take a closer look at the heater control valve located in line with heater core hose.it vacuum controlled to close coolant flow to heater core when a/c Is on.it's located by the radiator on passengers side.it has a black plastic lever on it, and the body it aluminum. The lever breaks internally, causing low coolant flow to heater core.remove and you will find white sludge build up. Replace and be on your way....

04 TAHOE Front A/C works great, Rear A/C blows warm. Seems like something isnt shutting the flow of hot water to the back??


Hi Jason.
Sounds like you are on the right track with the flow of hot coolant not stopping. Check your heater control valve to make sure it is stopping the flow of coolant through the rear heater core. Let me know. Hope this helps.

Our heater takes about 20 mins to blow warm air, and then if we are stopped at a light and the engine is idling it gets cold. Also, in the summer when we turn on the a/c it blows hotin the front and cool...


always check the coolant first, then feel both heater hoses to see if they are equally hot.
if one hot and one cold, then the heater core is clogged
if both hot then you have a blend door problem.
on the a/c there's some time a rear unit that blow cool air even the front does not

1999 plymouth grand voyager heater does not blow hot


One of two probable problems:
1. The Heater / Air Condition Control is going bad or is bad.
a. Disconnect the negative side of the battery.
b. Remove the Heater / AC face plate off the front. To do this: Remove the two (2) screws on the top lip of the plate.
c. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the rear of the Control Module.
OR
2. The Heater Core is defective and needs to be replaced.
Sorry, but it has to be noted that the dealer or repair shop ($$) can diagnose the system at the Heater / AC Control Module. Also, after you replace this Module: a diagnostic and re-calibration tests are needed to be performed.
Let me know if this helped or if you have additional questions or information. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

1999 Suburban, A/C on warm air from front vents, cold air in rear


The car uses the same freon in the front as it does in the rear. If the rear a/c is working, you either have a plugged evaporator in the front unit, or perhaps a bad heater switch. Try switching the heater to hot and see if it blows even warmer air from the front vents. If so, the heater switch is working and then it sounds like a plugged evaporator or maybe a plugged orifice tube. That is a good place to start looking. Hope this helps.

Rear heater blows cold


First thing I'd do is make sure your coolant level at radiator is up to proper level.Your auxiliary heat/cool unit should be in behind the right rear interior panel . (passenger side) If you remove that panel & check the hoses or lines going into it, they should be warm/hot to touch when heat on & engine warmed up to operating temperature. If not, it's most likely a problem with the electronic control, not allowing coolant flow to it, and I'm almost sure that the control cannot be fixed, but needs to be replaced. Triple check all your fuses for heater controls etc, but if everything else is working except the heat part, I'm guessing control at dash needs replacement.
