It sounds like the mixer controller is bad. It is an eletric device that moves the door to mix cold or hot air as required. This usually entails taking most of the dash apart to reach the part. Be careful if you attempt it and disconnect the battery so you don't set the air bags off.

Why does My thermostat Not switch between ac,heat,defrost . there's cold air coming out of vents but not cold enough to be ac. Initially when this started the ac was blowing hot air


If the air flow cannot be controlled from vent/defrost/floor you may have a blend door issue. This is an electric motor that operates a door in the heating system to control airflow. There are usually 3 motors controlling airflow direction,heat and recirculation. The Ac not blowing cold may also be another problem. If the AC is operational, the compressor will be engaged and the Ac low pressure line under the hood will bw cold. If this is all ok then a blend door issue should be suspected

Defrorstores stay on ,try to change to floor, ac, heat vent ,deforstores still on 1995 thunderbird lx blower motor works great.


Some cars use vacuum from the engine to open and close the doors that direct the air to different positions. It is possible that the vacuum line to the controls is cracked or disconnected.

Low air flow to feet when heat is on ?


Sounds to me that you might have a leak in the line. Those heaters are all Vacume actuated.

1989 Cadillac heat flow system is not flowing properly. Ive got heat low, med, and high the motor is kicking on but its not blowing out at the right strength. What would be the issue? Is there a cabin...


Check to see if the air is coming out of the defrost vents up on top of your dash...by the windshield. If this is the case...you have a vacuum line that has either come loose under the dash....or....the vacuum controller located behind the AC/Heat controller is not functioning properly. ( Tip....Vacuum is what actuates the "doors" inside your AC/Heat plenum...directing airflow straight out front vents...up to the defrost....and down to the heat.....

There is a blend door problem.

prev.gif next.gif HEATING AND AIR CONDITIONING Refer to Section 1 for discharging and charging of the air conditioning system. The heating system provides heating, ventilation and defrosting for the windshield and side windows. The heater core is a heat exchanger supplied with coolant from the engine cooling system. Temperature is controlled by the temperature valve which moves an air door that directs air flow through the heater core for more heat or bypasses the heater core for less heat. Vacuum actuators control the mode doors which direct air flow to the outlet ducts. The mode selector on the control panel directs engine vacuum to the actuators. The position of the mode doors determines whether air flows from the floor, panel, defrost or panel and defrost ducts (bi-level mode).

AC/Heat/Defrost inoperable


Chanses are its either the blend door motor quit working or the controls ( temp., selector, blower) in dash are bad, my 95 did the same thing i chg. the blend door motor thinking it was that, but it turned out to be the controls in the dash, 5 minutes work and 140.00 later it was fixed.
