Got a 2003 S-10 ZR2, the cooling and heat work fine but it's stuck in vent mode. I had the xfer case vacuum switch and the hvac control replaced which fixed the problem for about a week. Then the controller started hissing again and the vents qiut working. I pulled the vacuum trio off the switch and what do you know, dex III rolled out of the lines. Whats the right way to fix this?


After replacing the vac switch you also need to make sure and replace all the contaminated parts in the hvac system.This is per the service bulletin.You probably still had dex-3 in the lines and it finally worked it`s way back into the control head.H ... 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1997 audi a6 - heat not working i had the coolant pump, thermostat, serp belt, etc, replaced this past summer. this is the same mechanic that has done all my work for the last 10 years. no problems whatsoever. he located it to the climate control not being able to open the vents (they recommended me to another shop that fixes these problems for this). therefore, the vents may be 1) broken or 2) the motor that is opening the vents may be broke.

Air Conditioner 1999 Buick LaSabre. There is cool air coming out of the vents be the windshield but does not cool the rest of the car off. The vents on the driver and passenger side do not work at all. I took it to a auto place and they said $110 for putting freeon in and charging it. Then they said the vents were a electrical problem and would cost me a ton more. I know that I need to put more freeon in it and if there is a leak get it fixed then I need to find out it the vents are being blocke


To answer your question , yes that what needs to be done. Sounds like the vents aren't blocked, just that the control motors aren't opening them.  It may be a bad switch, lose wire.  So to get it working as you were told you would need that ... 1999 Buick LeSabre

I have a 03 Ford F150. My A/C unit was only blowing air through the defrost and I found a guy on eBay to fix it. I mailed the unit to him and he fixed the problem but now it only works on high! I can't turn it down or off. It does turn off when I turn the truck off. Any ideas on what the problem could be? Do you think the man who fixed the vent problem could have caused this problem? (I didn't have this problem before.) Thanks.


What all did you mail him? if it won't turn off the problem either lies with the blower motor or the in dash switch. ... Ford F-150

My upper rear climate control vents are not working at all. I switched out the rear climate control console and that did not make a difference. Looked in the back of the cabin where the rear HVAC blower motor is hidden. A black plastic semicircular piece with teeth that fits on a white spindle was broken. Does this direct the air flow to upper and lower cabin vents? How do I fix it without spending $1000s at the dealership?


The air flows to upper and lower vents depending on what setting you have it on. If there is no setting for upper and lower, it should blow on both. You will have to remove the panel and access the motor and actuator and remove all the broken pieces. ... Toyota Sienna
