Hello first of all

Your blend door motor / acuator is bad its basiclly a door that opens and closes when you flip your
heat to ac dial to either allow the hot air through the vents or cold air.

That being said on some suv and cars and trucks you can replace the motor that controlls this blend door can be changed without removing the dash and some you haveto remove the dash.


The blend door is located right by the heater core in the dash but sometimes the motor that controlls the door blend door is accsesable without dash removal and sometimes it is. I posted a picture below of what part is bad i hope it helps you.

If it helps please leave me 4 thumbs up thanks

    I had this same problem and I took it to GM for the fix. Luckily I was still under warranty when this occured..3 years, but I think this is something that would have been covered by them anyway. Ask your dealership. They needed to remove the entire dash from my 06 Torrent. Chances are you will need to as well.

2006 torent pontiac no heat


There is an actuator that opens and closes the Heat and AC door when you adjust the knob. If you are only receiving cold air when you switch the knob to heat, you will need to replace the actuator. I had the same issue and GM needed to remove my entire dashboard to replace this piece.

No heat in 2006 pontiac torrent, only cold air it


It sounds like your blend door is broken. I have a 2006 Pontiac Torrent as well and this happened to me last spring. Luckily, I live in AZ so I didn't have to deal with it until now. It costs approximately $1000 to fix as they have to take the entire dash out of the car. I will take all day to fix a piece of the car that costs $97. Pontiac should do a recall as this happens to almost every car.

How to troubleshoot the electrical air conditioning system 2000 GMC Yukon Denali. I put in new resistor, relay and dealer blower motor and it still doesn't do anything. Air conditioning control switch...


The compressor on the air conditioner in my 2000 GMC Yukon XL went out last summer. Had it and the whole line replaced at a local air conditioning shop last fall. Used it little before cold weather. Warm weather this spring and no cold air. We could hear the compressor trying to kick in. The shop told us that the control console was bad and had to be replaced. They told us the part was on back order and did not know if they would be abel to get one any time soon. We took the Yukon into the local GM dealership. They told us that the high side fitting was bad and that the freon was very low and that they would have to deal with that first to check the system. Called back to the air conditioning shop and they said they had a console come in and they would put it in and check the high side fitting. I now have cold air and questions. Bought Yukon in 2005 used, had always had problem of not switching to cold air once the heater has been used. We were told changing the console should fix that. It has not changed. I feel like the console angle was a scam, that the system was just low on freon. Each shop was blaming the other for trying to scam me. And what can fix the heat to cold issue? If anyone has answers I would sure appreciate the knowledge.

No heat 2006 pontiac torrent awd


your air damper or diverter may not be working.this is basically a mechanism that opens a flap by your heater core to control the amount of hot air that comes out.There is a rod that this flapper pivots on and if this rod is broken or the motor that operates it is not working you will either have heat all the time or no heat at all depending on which position it broke at.I know because my torrent has the same problem.To fix my problem they have to remove the dashboard to access the heater core which amounts to major $$$. I hope your problem is an easier fix. good luck

No heat only cold air comes out i have a 2006 torrent no heat


Hi there,

Well If you can turn on the heater but only cold air comes out you should check the blend door. It controls the door to switch from cold air to hot. It sits directly behind the heater/AC controls. It is white square plastic piece (approx 3in x 5in half inch thick and has a plastic screw rod that attaches to the heater/AC controls and they strip out

Good Luck!!

Thanks

I have no heat, there is a door that closes the outside air and let in the hot air from the engine. that door broke.


I have a 2006 Pontiac Torrent as well and the heat is not working. It's just blowinbg cold air. Could this be a manufacturing problem?

Won't start when cold


Sounds like ice in fuel line. Add drygas to remove water. Try not to store vehicle with gas tank empty.
