EB Fairmont Air con problems.

I have a 1992 EB Fairmont that has climate control on it. The problem is
that it stays on demist no matter what you press (the air comes out cold and
the actual air con itself is working) it will not move off the demist vents
to any other. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas how to fix this
problem. Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks All,
Owen.

Re: EB Fairmont Air con problems.

Owen,
Is this manual climate control or automatic?
If is automatic, does the light actually change?

If its manual, then my first port of call is the vacuum supply. In your engine bay, on the firewall near the washer bottle you will find two thin plastic tubes coming out. One is black the other is green. I forget which colour is which, but one (probably the black) is vacuum supply. The other is heater tap control.

Check they are both connected. If its manual climate, then i'd say that the supply tube has been dislodged. this will also be true of automatic climate if the lights change when you press the buttons.

Cheers
Jas

blend door. But if it's ACC do the self diagnosis and read the faule codes:

Engine at normal operating temperature, ignition on engine off. Press floor and off buttons at the same time. All panels will illuminate and it will go through a self check process after which it will display a fault code or "Off" if it is OK. E2 code is broken blend door.

Cheers Owen.

too many people round here voice worst case scenarios!
I prefer to start with the easy shit and check that. In most cases the easy stuff is whats wrong.
Costs little, and you need little technical expertise to check easy stuff....as you have just proved.


But what do i know, just a dumb panel beater

Cheers
Jas
