2005 2.2 Holden Vectra Heater failure

For some unknown reason my heater controls no longer work. The knob turns OK but the Temp doesn't change. The A/C is fine. The fan is fine. Just no heat. There are no warning lights or engine over heating. The Temp gauge goes from cold to normal when I first drive the car from cold starts. I've checked the cooling (radiator) water level in the container at the back near the fire wall and is OK.
Could this a common problem with 2.2 Vectra's ?
Could it be just blocked heater hose. ?
Is it electroniclly controlled.?
Help... I'm freezing in Melbourne's winter.

    The heater control is rotating knob like a volume control. I don't think it pulls a cable. I would say the heater temp is controlled electronically. The 2.2lt holden Vectra CDX climate control which makes me think it needs and auto elect rather than a mechanic. I have booked it in to a holden dealer for repaires (hoping it won't cost the earth)

Hi there.
Not sure of this model, but I'll do what I can.

Put simply, there is no hot water reaching your heater matrix.

This may be bacause -
A - It's blocked (sometimes caused by sediment or radweld products)
B - There's an airlock in the system.
C - the valve controlling flow is not working.

So....
Check for rusty gunk in radiator. If yes, remove hoses to heater matrix and flush with a hosepipe. Reconnect and fill with antifreeze mix.

Listen for any gurgling going on. Remove (small) heater hose when engine has just started (so not hot)
(!!! coolant will come out!!!) but should remove airlock. By remove I mean loosten clip and wiggle it untill you get a trickle of coolant out of the side - then tighten clip again. - Aim for around a cupfull of loss.

3 - check that the control from the dash is actually moving a cable to open a water valve somewhere. Plactic parts break unfortunately.

Hope this helps you get warm again !
Richie.

Could you tell me what the pins are called that hold the wheel on and where i could buy them from?


Pins? I don't know your model but most stroller prams use Capped Starlocks if its a pin with a looped top and spits in two at the bottom it's a cotter or split pin. any hardware can help with those. Any thing else is a custom part and a problem.

Take your old key along with your new keys to a locksmith or holden dealer and ask them to transfer the data from one **** to the other. Mr Minit doesnt do it. He only sells they keys.

Holden vs commodore sedan 1995 3.8L motor runs well then heats up temp gauge half way motor misses and backfires looses power then stops. Changed spark plugs leads and coils. Still same.


check your fuel pump it should turn on for a few seconds with the ignition on if it is constantly running then this would be your problem check your fuel pressure as well you can also disconnect the two battery terminals and touch them together for about 5 secs as this bridges it and resets everything if this still doesnt work feel free to email me at blinkybill_81@hotmail.com and i would be more than happy to help i have owned alot of these cars and as mechanic i have seen these same problems before

Holden vx commodore immobiliser


to fix the key you need a screw driver to pry the to halves of the key casing apart (make sure you have a spare set) taking care not to damage the internal electronic component board, because this electronic circuit board (cct bd) is powered by a 3 volt battery (which is also used to run the bios on computers) can be purchased for about 3 dollars from **** smiths, you need a small pair of side cutters to cut the metal tag connections between the battery and the cct bd taking care to note which is the positive and negative tracks on the cct bd, then using a soldering iron desolder the metal tag connections from the cct bd take care not to damage the copper tracks on the cct bd, try to use the proper desoldering technique (the copper gauze or a suction gun) to remove excess solder from the metal tags because they need to be removed, when the tags are removed from the cct bd there is a small hole on each copper track for the positive and negative reconnections to the newly purchased battery, use light audio speaker wire, black for negative and red for positive, presolder the wire ends first then cut the bear ends down and solder to the tracks taking care not to cross tracks with the solder, then shorten the both positive and negative lengths so the battery and the wires will fit back into the casing of the key and resolder the wire connections to the battery, before closing the key casing test the key to see if the immobiliser is operating then relocate the ring seal and close the two casing together with tape or reglue with arildite glue. if your soldering technique is not up to scratch practice your technique until you feel confident and this should save you about $100
