ED Fairmont Climate Control Blows Hot air

G'Day E-Series Gurus! I have an 1994 ED Fairmont with climate control that has recently started blowing hot air only. I cannot get it to cool down even when running the temp setting down to 16 deg.

I am assuming it may be the blend motor, but I have been told that it is possible to reset the system using a combination of buttons, and it has apparently helped in some cases. Does anyone know how to reset the climate control? Or alternatively, if someone can let me know how to access the diagnostics that would be helpful too!

Re: ED Fairmont Climate Control Blows Hot air

Run the self test diagnostics with engine at normal temp press engine off ignition on press the "Off "and "floor" buttons simultaneously. All the panel LEDs will light up and after a minute or so an fault code will be displayed (E1 to E7) or if there are no faults it will display "OFF" . Post the code here to find out what it means and how to fix it.

I'll put my money down as the blend door motor has had it...

Get ready for dash removal time to replace it!!

Thanks for the replies - will give it a go tomorrow and let you know what comes up! My thoughts are the blend door motor - heard it's a common thing with this series!

Cheers

Re: ED Fairmont Climate Control Blows Hot air

Went through the procedure, no error code came up and guess what? The system is now working as it should! Go figure. So whether the act of obtaining the codes reset it or not I can't say......as the system was definitely jammed on hot air only. But hey, I'm not complaining as it has saved me a dash removal. Many thanks Aussiblue and Waks for all the advice! Cheers

Yes running the diags will reset it if it is stuck.
