Help My 1998 olds bravada is always blowing hot air out of the vents. This happens even when I have the temp control on the coldest setting,and when the fan is off.

    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.

My experience is that you may be having problems with your final stage resistor. It controls the temperature of the airflow into the vehicle.

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
