Question about 1987 Saab 900

1 Answer

I'm having a problem with my front deroster. it seems that when it rains my windows will not clear up. If I turn the heater control knob on defroster It will not blow anything out of the vents for the defroster to work. It seems that it only blows out from the face and feet area. Do you know what the problem could be.

The vent actuators are vacuum controlled on this model. Do you hear a hissing sound when you turn the control knob? If not, then you'll need to check the pipe or hose connections. Start with the vacuum reservoir bottle on the right hand wing just in front of the door. Ther'll be a hose from the inlet manifold to the bottle, make sure that's connected & air tight. The other pipe from the bottle goes to the heater controls. Has the radio been removed or any work done in that area? If all appears fine, remove the radio & make sure the large white, multi-hosed connector is fitted securely to the control switch & all the pipes are connected to it.
Good luck, let me know if you need any further help.

. Air won't blow out of the floor or center vents just defrost ? Do you have manual or automatic climate control ?
Air Flow Control
Air flow control is accomplished in the following manner:
  • Primary control is through the function selector knob mounted on the A/C-heater function selector switch, which is part of the integrated control panel.
  • The function selector knob has the following positions: OFF, MAX A/C, A/C, PANEL, PANEL/FLOOR, FLOOR, FLOOR/DEFROST and DEFROST. The A/C-heater function selector switch combines a vacuum selector valve with an internal electrical switch.
  • The vacuum selector valve directs source vacuum to various vacuum control motors (18A318). Refer to the Vacuum Control Diagram , System Airflow Schematics and Vacuum Control Chart .
  • Two internal, single-pole electrical switches are also controlled by the A/C-heater function selector switch. The combination of these electrical switches controls the electrical supply to the A/C clutch and heater blower motor switch (18578).
  • The position of the function selector knob determines the manner in which the system will operate.
  • Each position of the function selector knob is detented for positive engagement.
  • Vacuum Control Motors The vacuum control motors (18A318):
    • are located on the A/C evaporator housing, A/C recirculation air duct and heater air plenum chamber (18471).
    • direct system airflow to the vehicle interior as determined by the remote climate control module or manual override.
    • The five-passenger seating configuration has an additional vacuum control motor mounted on the heater air plenum chamber to control airflow to the rear seat A/C register (19893).

The heat/defrost won't work


This can be caused by a stuck blend door or a clogged heater core. Can you hear the blend door moving when you turn the temp knob? If not, it may have disconnected from the control panel or blend door. If the door works, remove the heater core and flush it or replace it.

Heater and defroste zone control does not work


This is going to be a default position the computer selects for the hvac system after a repair has been performed, or a diagnostic trouble code for the hvac has been logged. You will need to contact Jeep and find out what it takes to clear the code. That information is normally free.
