    Mine does the same thing, but I have a leak in my compressor so my a/c won't work at all. I thought that was the problem. But, yeah, mine will blow hot air out when on cold AND turned off.

You probably have electronic climate control. Some models have this others have a vacumn operated system. If the vac system the part is about $50-100 aftermarket and easy to do yourself. If elec the part is available dealer only and about $200 last I checked. Your problem is the blend door. This is located on the pass sd under the dash. Starte your car and look under the dash in the back you will see the steel shaft rotate. The problem is GM put a plastic gear in the motor and it does not last. This is hard to get to but you can do it without taking out the whole box. 2 screws to take off then just lift off. Easier to get off than put back on. Hard to believe people buy Toyota and Nissan. This should have been a recall but, I guess if it can't kill you the U.S. is not going to do anything about it. Hope this helps. P.s. There is a small chance that it is the assembly that controls the door motor. This is your actual controls on the dash. Go get a used one from a junkyard for $40 very easy to install 20 minutes.

I have a 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada with automatic climate control that blows cold air in the winter and hot in the summer. The thermostat is working fine and it doesn't need flushed. There are no le


It sounds like the system is fried. Based on the description, it is just pulling in the outside air and not doing anything to heat or cool the flow. Unfortunately, this is a job for your preferred mechanic.

The heater blows hot air when in cool position on a 98 olds bravada


AC not working?

on a hot day it will blow warm/hot air if the AC is turned off or not working

If its hot air and AC is working then i would start by checking the fuse or relay. if its not the fuse/relay then i would look into the heater box there is a door that blocks the hot air

There may be a vacuum leak,in the control head,or the supply to it or even to one of the vacimn motors that controls door opening! The vaumn reservoir may be leaking and or the check valve! Does it cool ok at idle or at low speeds and partial throttle opening?

My 98 olds bravada started blowing hot air even when the air and heat is turned off .....my heat and air both dont work now ..... any solutions?


Either the entire control panel has gone out or the door actuator motor has stuck or stopped working - real pain to change - behind the glovebox - has screws on top of actuator that are almost impossible without a swivel 1/4 wrench

Heater temp on mercury '98 mountaineer only blows hot


Everything that is heat and cooling in a vehicle is controlled by vacuum from the engine. It appears to me that your blend door vacuum line to the temp control switch is either off or cracked/broken and not making things work the way you want/expect. It's the vacuum friend.

HOT AIR ALWAYS


this problem is almost always caused by the air temperature control blend door being warped and stuck or by the electric actuator that moves it, the common issue is the blend door actuator. To replace or repair this part requires the removal of the entire dash assembly.

1999 Olds Bravada - High Heat is always on.


I have narrowed the problem to a non-functioning climate control acctuator (a mechanical vent door opening/closing unit that mixes warm and cold air) Unfortunately it is located high in the dash and requires entire removal of dash panel. Shop repair manual states a repair time of 5.2 hours... GM parts $260 actuator $75 door panel......Online parts $60 to $175
