my climate control dosent seem to get hot.. i've checked the hose.. didn't notice anything off...
engine is hot, i set climate to 32deg waited20min+ not one bit of heat... 16deg setting works fine...
also, setting recirc/fresh mode is no diffrent.. air comes through the vents in recirc (hot air) with the system turned off( although i hear movement when button is pressed) so i'm always closing the vents manually.. could it be a thermostat prob?
The tap in the heater system has probably failed. Vacuum controlled on the heater hose LH side of engine near firewall low down. It may look OK but don't be fooled the rubber flap inside fail so they don't move from a fixed position. In any event, also do a Climate Control self test; hold the floor and off buttons down together then release together and see what code if any is displayed. I assume as it's a Ghia you have Auto Climate Control?
You did it twice in a row? doing that just resets the system so that it thinks there are no errors, thats all that did. im getting an E3 from my climate control :( stupid thing. i think thats the cabin sensor error, and i have the same problem, i have no heat inside the car, and there appears to be water runnin through the heater core (felt both incoming and outgoing pipes while engine was running) hmm
E2 is the dreaded broken blend door.
E3 is a cabin temp sensor fault; the sensor behind liitle tiny fan and duct behind the little dash grill above the clock computer; usually just the fan or sensor wiring disconnected.
as for the side strips
remove all the damaged strip carefully (you will notice theres about 2 layers of thin stuff the chrome and a clear layer) and take the car to a pinstriping place and get em to redo the chrome strips
i am in the process of removing the crappy damages chrome and i hope to have my chrome strips on my NC done over the coming weeks
