A31 heater problem. Help needed.
« on: June 06, 2006, 08:32:27 PM »
Hi.
I have a problem with the heater in my A31. It wont blow hot air. The best it can manage is not quite lukewarm. the temprature gauge reads bang on halfway when the car has been running, but there's no warm air to be had.
The heater in my A31 parts car works a treat. But I'm not going to swap the whole thing over. (that's way too much work)
I had a look at the heater control panel in my parts car, and I see that it's all electrically controlled. Maybe the valve is stuck? Where is the valve located? What means does it use to actuate it? With the weather being sooo dam cold, I don't care if it only blows hot air for now. I can fix the problem properly in the spring.

Any suggestions?

i know alot of cef stuff is the same as s13's.. if its the same there is a little module that sits just behind the console on the passenger side that controls the hot-cold appently its really common for this units to stuff up.. its just a box with a plug into it if u put your hand at the bottom of your glovebox where it meets with the centre console u should be able to feel it stuck onto the back
