I would expect this is more to do with a low coolant level than an electrical issue. If your coolant is low when you turn off the headlights your engine revs will increase slightly increasing the pressure in your coolant system and pushing fluid into your heater core.
Check your coolant reservior when your car is cold (first thing in the morning), it should be at max cold. If it is lower than this you may not have warm coolant in your heater core.
If this is the case...then where did your coolant go?
Most likely the thermostat/temp housing is leaking...replaced both on my two 2001 sebrings...common issue..~$150 for parts and a little awkward to install but fairly easy fix.

2001 sebring blows hot air then after approx 20 mins blows cold air. Temp gauge inside car only goes up to about 1/4 mark.. any ideas? Had coolant system flushed.


Sounds like maybe a stuck thermostat. or a blocked heater core. Just cause the system was flushed dosent mean the heater core was cleaned out.

1992 Dodge Dakota 2wd 3.9L V6 Air conditioning/Heater dosent blow? when i turn the air or the heat on i can hear the compressor kick on but it dosen't blow cold or hot? any help would be appreciated


Roger it sounds like the blower motor is not comming on. There is a resistor network located in the engine compartment on the passenger side mounted to the firewall, that controlls the blower motor. The connections may have corroted or the unit itself is bad. That was the first thing I had to relpace when I got my used 92 Dakota. There is also a 30 amp fuse in the fuse box under the dash board . If that is blown I would suspect the blower motor is seized up or just pulling too much power.

2001 chrysler sebring convertable, Heater only produces hot air when engine is running above 3000 rpm's otherwise it will only blow cold air.


flush the cooling system or have it flushed. it is clogged or low on fluid. make sure they use an approved flush chemical to do this and bleed it properly with the heat on high. this should take care of it as long as there are no overheating issues or leaks. cheers

When you turn on the heat--hot air blows out for a few minutes than it blows out cold air.What could cause this????? 2002 chrylser sebring convertible.


low coolant level can cause this condition, when the engine is cold, check your coolant level. if it is full you may have a bad head gasket, have that checked by your favorite repair shop

1998 Sebring Convertible heater is blowing cold air even after replacing the thermostat. Any suggestions on fixing the heat?


after engine is warmed up , feel the hoses that go to and come from the heater. if they are not hot , this indicates that coolant is not flowing through the heater core. Could be that the core is all plugged up , ore some cars have a valve that opens or closes the flow. If the hoses are hot , that the problem is that the ducts in the dash that send air to and from the heater plenum are not opening up correctly. They usually work on a vacuum motor.
If you are not sure which are the heater hoses add that to your post , and I will track down the location for your vehicle. The heater hoses are usually about 1 inch in diameter.

2001 Suzuki XL-7. Heater blows hot one side, cold the other.


No ductwork [to the lower vents] under the dash. They are part of the heater core / blower housing is integrated (all one piece).

After reviewing shop manual, we suspect that one of the three damper flaps is not positioning correctly; or debris has blocked one side (which makes more sense given the symptoms).

We're waiting for the temperatures to get back in the plus numbers to check out the physical arrangement.
