Nitro heat/cool issue
My 2010 Dodge nitro has hot air only. Does not
matter where the temperature control dial is set or
if I have the air conditioner on still hot air. So any
ideas what parts I start replacing first?
The ductwork has blend doors that move to get the temperature to the vent where you want it. Could be that blend door that throttles hot/cold is sticking because the door actuator is defective. You may have noticed a tapping sound under the dash from a defective actuator. The doors are located under the dash and possibly behind the glove box; the actuators are small boxes. Try a spray lubricant on the actuators, or remove them to see if there's a broken sprocket. Might need replacing. It's not a difficult fix.
K, I'll check it out. Thanks
Ok so I replaced the door actuator and it's been working great. The other day I noticed a clicking noise coming from under the dash so I pulled the plug on the new actuator and the noise stopped. So my question is did I do something wrong when I replaced the actuator or did the new one go bad already? Any ideas. Thanks
Might be a different blend door. Your car probably has three. One that throttles between hot/cold, and two to direct air to different vents.
