Heater blowin cold air

Sounds like your heater blend doors aren't adjusting from cold to heat. If you google "blend doors" you can read about them. They are usually pretty hard to get to, the dash needs to come out. Hope this helps! Jonathan Lavezzo

2002 sebring overheats, heater blows cold. changed thermostat, flushed radiator and added new coolant. vehicle still runs hot with no heat.

Ohh that sucks!
I bet the engine light is on, too, huh? I bet if you took it to read the codes, it would say cooling system inefficiency, too.. Mine did the same thing and it was the timing belt slipping o the water pump.

Here is a walk through of how to find out for sure. It works on any engine that is running too hot.

Thanks for the vote.

I have a 2001 sebring convertable 2.7 V6, when I have the headlights on my heater is blowing cold air, turn them off and hot air blows, the dash lights at the temp knob and the fan speed knob are also...

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.

My car keeps overheating when i turn on the heat...could it be the water pump?

waterpump or water leak. check your water levels, and turn the heater temp up, if its still cold then there is either a problem with your heater matrix, air in the system or water pump is knackered. to check for air pockets in the system take the cap of your water bottle and let the engine run for 15 mins. this will let any air pockets escape, and remember to check the water level afterwards. if you heater matrix is gone then you would probably find that no hot air comes through or their are wet patches in the front passanger and driver carpets.

Teperature gauge running hot and heater not working

If the car is hot and the heater blows cold air your thermostat is stuck shut or your radiator is really low on water/antifreeze check when engine is cold hasn't been ran like overnight take off the radiator cap and if it is low add so antifreeze/water if heater still blows cold air or water level is ok your thermostat is stuck shut and needs to be replaced.

My 2004 Sebring heater only blows warm air when the car is moving. If I stop at a traffic light or put it in park it blows cold air. Any ideas?

1st check the coolant level. If it's low, what you describe will happen. If level is ok, let me know, and include info on engine temp gauge--how long to warm up, is gauge at warm up low temp range, normal, or hot?

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

2004 Sebring: The heater blows hot air only at speed, it goes cold at idle and low speeds (20mph). the coolent level is full and I back flushed the hearer core.

One thing to consider is your thermostat and water pump. If somehow, your thermostat is stuck open, your engine won't get up to temperature. Also, a bad waterpump won't move coolant thru the heater core. Both of these situations should show up on your engine temperature, making it hot or cold...but sometimes they don't show up if your driving pattern doesn't tax the engine..My daughter's car had a bad electric cooling fan , and never was a problem, unless she was stuck in traffic...

04 civic heater blows cold air at idle

you should have hot water on all rad. hoses when the motor is running at a norm. temp. the water is not going through the heater core like it should. you have cutoff valve bad low water are a stopped heater.try a hoter thermostat if none of the above are true.
