NO HEAT Complaint, -First of all check your coolant level, If OK Lets Remove the Passenger Glove Box, Look to your left you will see a Blower Duct Remove it, Look at the blend air door lever this controls the amount of Air traveling through the heater core and the AC Evaperator. Start your car and adjust temp, see if the lever is moving...If No then remove the blend air door motor but take note on the postion of the arm..although i like to go to hot totally or Cold totally then when i reinstall the motor i position the arm to match ...Fully Up is totally hot fully down is ice cold....!!! Open the blend air door housing and clean the contacts that travel on the large gear with a File or Sandpaper and wipe any collective grease that has maybe in excess...then put together put the plug into her and try lets see if the arm travels now......i have a link to see what we have just discussed ....

1998 toyota avalon heat blows..but blows out cool??? any suggestions

this is going to sound silly, but check you coolant level... if the level is ok, you will have to check to see that the blend door is operation properly. the blend door is located inside the box on the passenger side of the dash. also, check the switch that lets you go from hot to cold....

You will need a torx bit set, I am not sure of the size, but all the torx screws in the removal should be the same size. First, removed the panel under the glove box, then remove the glove box itself. The you will see the SRS passenger air bag plate, which is held on by 3 nuts, 13mm if I remember right. Then take that out. Now you will see the blower to the right when looking through the opening in the glove box. To the left you will a black flat plug which is plugged into the back of the rectangular shaped Resistor; it has an ear on it where there is a screw attaching the resistor to the ventilation duct. Simply unplug the resistor and remove screw. Installation is reverse of removal.

Hey, I have a 99 Cadillac Deville Concours with no heat. I checked the cooolant level and it was ok. The car does not over heat and is not running cold. The passenger side has even colder air than the driver's. Any idea what could be the problem?

Hello: Remove the cover under the passenger side, then remove the glove box from the dash, there are two temperature actuators mounted to the Heater case, the one on the bottom is for the driver, the one on the top is for the passenger. With engine running and the heater/a/c control on move the temp up and down the silver rods should move, if they don,t take you fingers and see if you can move them. The force of the blower motor tends to keep the temperature doors in the a/c position. The only way to fix correctly is to replace them.
