EF Climate Controls not working - HELP?!
I've been searching the forum for help on this issue but haven't found exactly what I need.
[Backstory - My (new) girlfriend totalled my EF Falcon a few months ago when dropping off our baby sitter (no insurance, arrrrgh!), but the next week paid for a replacement EF Fairmont in miiiiiiint condition. She's a keeper!).
The Fairmont has everything working correctly except the climate system. Air con, fan, etc all work, but I can't get air to blow on the screen, OR on my feet.
When I cycle through the vent settings, it "sounds" like things (blend flaps etc) are moving behind the dash, but no air will come to feet, or screen.
Any advice much appreciated. I really DON'T want to pull the dash out.
Anyone know the exact diagnostic input to check the system, and what codes I should look for? Any way to try and recalibrate blend flap motors?
Oh yeah, one more weird thing - when the windscreen wipers are on, they make a scraping noise with each sweep, the noise seeming to come clearly from inside the dash near the windscreen-vent area. Not from outside/the hood cowling. Quite weird. Dunno if this is linked with a jammed vent flap or not?
This is the only thing not working on this virtually one-owner car, so if I can get it fixed I'll be stoked, and have a (near) perfect ride.
Cheers from NZ.
