Hi


Pop the hood and disconnect the negative terminal on the battery using an open-end wrench. Allow the truck to sit for at least 20 minutes before you work on the airbag.

Reach behind the steering wheel and locate the two screws that hold the airbag to the steering wheel. Unscrew those screws using the torx-head screwdriver, which will allow the airbag to fall forward from the steering wheel.

Unplug the horn switch connector wire and the airbag connector with your hands, then hold the airbag with the vinyl face pointing up and carefully place it in a safe spot, away from any potential energy source.


WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, DISABLE THE AIRBAG SYSTEM BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, SEAT BELT TENSIONER, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. DISCONNECT AND ISOLATE THE BATTERY NEGATIVE (GROUND) CABLE, THEN WAIT TWO MINUTES FOR THE AIRBAG SYSTEM CAPACITOR TO DISCHARGE BEFORE PERFORMING FURTHER DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. THIS IS THE ONLY SURE WAY TO DISABLE THE AIRBAG SYSTEM. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.

Foe a detailed instruction read the following:-

The Airbag Control Module (ACM) is located on the tunnel under the dash and held in place by multiple brackets. The replacement module comes with the brackets and Chrysler recommends replacing everything as one unit.
Here are the detailed removal instructions right from Chrysler and a sketch to show you what you are after.

1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. If either of the airbags has not been deployed, wait two minutes for the system capacitor to discharge before further service.
2. If the vehicle is equipped with a manual transmission, remove the center console from the floor panel transmission tunnel. Refer to Floor Console in Group 23 - Body for the procedures.
3.If the vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission, remove the two screws that secure the trim cover to the Airbag Control Module (ACM) mounting bracket on the floor panel transmission tunnel and remove the trim cover Airbag Control Module Trim Cover Remove/Install
4.Loosen the screw that secures each side of the instrument panel center support bracket to the ACM mounting bracket Airbag Control Module Remove/Install Do not remove these screws
5.Remove the two nuts that secure the instrument panel center support bracket to the studs on the lower instrument panel structural support.
6.Disengage the retainer on the instrument panel wire harness to the ACM from the mounting hole in the left side of the instrument panel center support bracket.
7.Pull the top of the instrument panel center support bracket rearward and down from the instrument panel studs. Fold it down over the top of the ACM until it is laying flat on the floor panel transmission tunnel.
8.Disconnect the instrument panel wire harness connector from the ACM. To disconnect the instrument panel wire harness connector from the ACM:
a.Slide the red Connector Position Assurance (CPA) lock on the top of the connector toward the side of the vehicle.
b.Depress the connector latch tab and pull the connector straight away from the ACM connector receptacle
NOTE: Always remove and replace the airbag control module and its mounting bracket as a unit. Replacement modules include a replacement mounting bracket. Do not transfer the module to another mounting bracket.

c.Remove the four screws that secure the ACM mounting bracket to the floor panel transmission tunnel.
9.Remove the ACM, the mounting bracket and the instrument panel center support bracket from the floor panel transmission tunnel as a unit.

My 1994 chevrolet blazer knocks when i turn it off


The sound you hear is one of the door motors trying to run. It is likely the recirc door motor. So try moving the controls to recirc before you shut it off and if the noise does not occur the recirc motor will need to be replaced. If you already have it on recirc try moving to fresh air before shutting off. The motors have plastic gears inside that strip and will need to be replaced to repair the noise.

I need to replace the Heater Blend Door Actuator in my wife's 2004 Pontiac Grand Am SE. Were is it and how hard is it to replace.


its hard job if first time doing mechanic work.problem could be the temperature control switch also.to get to the air door actutor you have to remove instrument panel cluster and remove lower right sound insulator and lower left sound insulator panel and knee bolster from below the steering column.first you need to disable airbag in the steering wheel and passenger side dash before working around the dash area.to disable airbags turn off radio disconnect negative battery cable wait 20 minutes let airbag discharge first before attempting to work around the dash or instrument cluster. like i said hard job if first time you have remove a lot of things to get to the heater core housing where air door actutor and defrost actutator locations.

Clicking noise under dash near blend door. Removed fan and clicking still there. Is it possible the blend door is causing the clicking. It only starts when temp controls are moved from col to warm.


could be the blend door actuator(motor) when its clicking, disconnect it, if it stops then the motor is bad. If you want to.....if you mostly have it on recirc anyhow, just disconnect it when the door is open.

02 dodge ram 1500 heat on passenger side of vechile only


If you are getting heat only on the pass. side then I believe the blend door has failed. Dodge has a fix and the job is not easy as almost the whole dash needs to come out in order to get to the heater box and the door. I have read that a simple flush of the heater core will cure it, But that diidn't work for me. I think because dual climate control was an option the door is set up to control the two sides of the cab. When it fails only the pass. side gets heat.

Unfortunatly you do have to remove the dash to access any of the blend door or fresh air door actuators
here is a step by step proceedure this takes aprox 5 hrs in a shop so plan on a weekend at home good luck

FLOOR - DEFROST DOOR ACTUATOR

REMOVAL

WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, DISABLE THE AIRBAG SYSTEM BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE.

Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
Remove the instrument panel assembly from the vehicle.

Fig. HVAC housing, dual zone shown (single zone similar)-nut (1), passenger blend door actuator (2), nut (3), inlet baffle (4), recirc door actuator (5), recirc air door (6), driver side blend door actuator (7), HVAC housing (8), bolt (9), defroster door actuator (10), mode door actuator (11)

Remove the electrical connector from the actuator.
Remove the mounting screws from the actuator.
Remove the actuator from the HVAC housing.

INSTALLATION
Install the floor-defrost door actuator to the HVAC assembly.
Install the mounting screws and tighten to 2.2 Nm (20 in. lbs.) .
Install the actuator electrical connector.
Install the instrument panel assembly into the vehicle.
Connect the battery negative cable.

I suggest check (or replace if is necessary), the blend door it is a huge project you have to remove the dash board. There is a repair kit available either way it is a 8 hr shop time project.

Hope helps.

A/C is blowing but little air is coming out


Remove the blower motor to see if the recirc door broke off and is laying over the blower cage. a common problem for 06 and 07.

Read the entire link.

The is an easy procedure and the part number are all in the forum post.
Soilution#1 on this thread seems a little touchy...with going in from the top and fiddling with the air bag and all.

1999 Merc Gran Marquis Need to replace blend door motor. I found a site that said i had to remove dash. I think if i can get the passinger airbag out, including it's cover i can get to it from there. how...


The air bag is bolted in from the back, remove the glove box door and the liner/compartment, I used to get at the motor from there without removing the airbag, it is hard but do-able.
