Climate control problem

Ok I think this is the rite place 2 post this. If its not, mods please move.

Anyways. Onto my story. I was hoping 2 do the lil led mod to my climate control soon and I wanted 2 see how 2 take the climate control out and everything before I tried the mod.

Well I took the climate control out and I un-screwed a couple screws that I dont think did anything. I screwed them rite back into place. And when I left last nite 2 go 2 work I had the heat on but it was blowing out cold air the whole time and I noticed the slider wouldnt slide over 2 the blue. It would get halfway and get stuck.

So I thought "eh easy fix. I'll check it out when I get off". Well I've been messing with it for about an hour trying 2 get the heat 2 work but it wont work no matter what I try. I even took out the screw holding the line connected 2 the slider so that it would move freely. That didnt work either.

I have no idea why Im not getting heat. Is there anyway somebody could possibly help me figure out whats wrong? Many many thanks in advance

Also if anybody needs more info from me 2 find out whats wrong I'll try 2 answer everything 2 the best of my knowledge.

Re: Climate control problem

you need to pull up your service manual and find the section on your climate control. The "slider" you are speaking of is hooked to an adjusting cable that routes to just behind the dash on the passenger side. This controls weather hot or cold air is let into your HVAC system.
What has me concerned is you mentioned in your OP that you had taken two screws out that "didn't appear to do anything." Sounds to me like they did have something to do with your current issue. Remove the unit following the instructions in the manual or the DIY thread for the same thing. Until you can get time to do this... reach under the dash and move the heat control manually.

and I am offering my services if you do indeed wish to have your LED's (on the circuit board) changed to ANY color.... just pay shipping and a small donation toward my car. :D

I was really hoping u would read this thread. Lol
But the 2 screws I removed was one that is attached 2 a very small plate that holds the adjustable slider cable in place. The other screw I took out was the one holding the silver plate that the slider mechanism actually slides on. I noticed one thing tho. Whenever I try 2 turn it 2 cold, the slider gets stuck. I seen why too. The adjustable cable is thin at first and then it goes into another cable. Im guessing the thin part of the cable is supposed 2 move freely in and outta the big part of the cable. Hopefully Im explaining this correctly. But anywayz. The thick part of the cable is sliding and getting caught on the lil plate that holds the adjustable cable in place. Sorry for such a long post. Please help lilmsprelude! Lol

Edit: Also I've tried messing with the adjustable cable alot and its not doing anything. I think I know whats wrong. The thin cable isnt moving by itself. Its moving with the thicker cable so its not actually pulling the thin cable enough when I try 2 turn the heat on. I Hope u understand what Im saying

Re: Climate control problem

it doesn't appear to be much, but the alignment and placement of the outer shield of the cable is imperative, as I am sure you have discovered. the C shaped clamp should be holding down the cable on the black plastic, not the spiral metal or the cable inside the assembly.
I did the same thing the first time I pulled mine out, before I found Preludezone. The manual does actually say to remove the cable from the foot-well and pull it out with the HVAC controls.
What you need to do now is take the whole assembly out again, and realign the cable properly. It wouldn't hurt at this time to use some lubricating grease or graphite to ensure the longevity of the slide action.

Re: Climate control problem

When I did my CC I had this issue( while I still had everything apart.) MAake sure that the bracket holds the cable's jacket tight and doesn't let the jacket slip so as to get stuck behind the bracket.


That made very little sense. **** this is a hard one to explain. Check out my DIY that I made for more pics and I think I explained the air mix cable. but yea, lilms has the idea. you just need to make sure that the bracket doesnt interfere with the jacket moving at all...Worst case scenario? take it all apart and set it to hot put it back together until you can dick with it some more lol

edit: heres my diy if you want some pics to mull over... http://www.preludezone.com/diy-inter...y-version.html
edited edt: After reviewing my diy thread, check it out I think I gave pretty good directions to fix your problem exactly. if it is indeed the same problem...which I'm sure it is. Hope that helps!

Re: Climate control problem

perhaps you moved the heater core valve further than its used to and is now slightly jammed. open the hood, directly in the centre of the car directly behind the motor is the heater valve. it is on a coolant hose and a hint tricky to get to. you can see the black cable come out of the fire wall and attach to it. you need to turn it counter clockwise. this will turn the heat fully on. so the slider should be at the right now. try using the cc now to go to cold then back to hot.
