ive searched for this and i cant quite find exactly what im looking for. i had to go through the dramatics of ripping apart the dash to replace the instrument cluster bulbs, & for those who've done it you know how much of a PITA that is. when i removed the radio/hvac controls, something happened but im not sure exactly what. now whenever i turn the heat on, it only comes out of the defrost and a tiny bit on the floors but not enough to be felt. i looked at the controls after i replaced everything and i noticed that i didnt completely disengage the heat before i unplugged everything, could that have something to do with it?
now for problem number 2. i purchased this car with 14k miles, it now has 104k and i've had a heat-related idling problem that i could never conquer. it only occurs when the heat is on, it will idle fine and about every 15-20 seconds or so the idle will drop down to about 400-550 and it feels like it was ready to quit, then it will go back to the reg. n repeat. the battery light used to flash real quick when it would bog down, i replaced the battery, that problem went away but i still have the idling problem. i have a SRI but i didnt install it til about 68k or so, so that shouldnt be the problem.
