El Climate Control -- No Heater?????

G'day

The heater in my EL Fairmont Ghia seems to have packed up. The CLimate control works sweet unless you want to warm the car up. There is absolutely no hot air coming in to the cabin when an increased temperature is selected. Has anyone experienced this and does anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing this?

Cheers,

Mike.

u may need to flush the hoses out coz there most likely blocked or the heater has been bypassed

Re: El Climate Control -- No Heater?????

Could be the blend door motor in the dash that controls the flap for heat/cold

There is a procedure to test the climate control system...i think you hold down floor and off at the same time?. It will come up with an error code if it detects a problem...

have a search on the forums for the exact testing methods...or perhaps an E series owner with CC can elaborate more?

Re: El Climate Control -- No Heater?????

i had exactly the same problem around 2 months ago, but i only got around to fixing it last weekend, my blend door motor had ran past it's contacts. and it needed to be jumped back into possition.

To perform the diagnostic on the climate control unit press and hold "mode,A/C, and OFF buttons, then release mode and A/C while holding "OFF" for a further second. If done correctly the display will light up with every icon it has. it does this for around 10 seconds. then reports back any problem it finds. if there are any errors it will display eg. "E - 1" i think the blend door motor stuck code is E-5.

If error 5 appears the motor will need the be either jumped or replaced.. (ford charge anywhere between $500 - $750 to replace the motor)

Cheers guys.

Did the self test. It whirred for a few seconds and then turned itself off. No error messages though. Maybe it is the hoses.

Try changeing your thermostat before listening to any other advice, I spent 700 dollars replacing everything under the dash and on the the motor, too much listening to other peoples suggestions and advice...the problem was my 26 dollar(aust) thermostat....could have saved a bunch if I had started there first.

Re: El Climate Control -- No Heater?????

I've got the same problem in my 2004 XR6 - I have manual air conditioning though not the fancy climate control. Is there a way to reset/test the system like above?

Re: El Climate Control -- No Heater?????

Thumbs up Re: El Climate Control -- No Heater?????



Thanks Bounce Ferret, you bloody rock hard buddy, been without heat for couple years now and live in the country and its deathly cold here. So that just saved my freezing bones and close to frost bitten fingers and toes, & now even my kitten is running round the car happy as a pig in poop. She was zipped up inside my hoodie before I tried that awesome little trick.

So happy and snug in here right now, reckon we might sleep in the car tonight lol

Good to hear you got it fixed .Doubt Bounce Ferret will get the thanks as it's 11 years since he last posted .

Never, never, never give up.
