SOURCE: Low heat from my 2001 Passat heater

There are known problems with this vehicle's heater core not getting enough coolant flowing through it to blow hot air.
1) Even if the coolant looks good, there are problems with the heater core plugging up. One solution is to use a heavy duty cleaner (CLR pipe cleaner) to back flush the heater core. To know if the heater core is plugged up, disconnect the 2 heater hoses at the heater core and somehow connect a hose to one end of the core. Try to flow water through, it doesn't have to be high pressure, and there should be a steady stream. If not, try to get the cleaner directly into the heater core and let it soak. Then back flush it and a lot of scale should be seen coming out.

2) The other problem is that since the heater core is the highest point in the cooling system air tends to get trapped in it. This should only happen if the coolant goes low or someone has opened the system to service it. There are a number of ways to bleed the system (vacuum bleed, pressure bleed). One of the hoses should have a small hole in it for bleeding air, pull that hose back just enough so the hole allows coolant to flow out of it. Then accelerate the engine and get a good flow coming out, when no more air bubbles are present, there should be good heat.

3)I've heard of bad water pumps with low flow causing issues as well as an aux. water pump not fuctioning correctly leading to poor heat output from the heater core. Someone should confirm this as I cannot get much information on the aux water pump(electronic pump by the alternator that is supposed to run after the car is shut off).

Hope this helps.

It may be the heater fan motor or connection to it .
I have replaced a lot of these that required a new connector to make then work....as the original connector semi melted at the fan motor.

SOURCE: 2001 Audi S4 Heater doesn't work

Thermostat has failed (stuck open) and needs replacement. It's a big job (5-6 hours charged labor for a shop), and requires the front of the car to be removed. Here's a pic of my car (B5 A4) a few weeks ago when I changed mine:

There's no way around it either - removing the front of the car is the only way to access it.

SOURCE: heater fan and cigarette lighter don't work

The fuse for these items is the second one down in the right hand row in the fusebox down by the driver's feet. Swap the fuse with another one to check.

Why no heat in 2001 mazda protege


Possible that the fan belt is not tensioned right or that the water pump is binding causing low flow through the heater.
If belt is not loose, release it more and try turning the water pump by hand to see if it is binding.

2001 Chevy Venture - My heat is not as hot as usual and blows cool when idle. Coolant level is fine. Temp Gauge isn't working.


Sounds like you need to have the cooling system flushed out then have them put a new themostat in it. If that dont fix the prob you might have to put a new heater core in it or radiator.

Rear blower: only works on high when set on cold, won't work at all when set to heat


I would start with the rear blower motor resistor, the resistor is what controls the speed of the fan, the resistor is located in the rear heater box near the blower, you will need to remove the right rear side panel to access the heater box. start with that

I have a 2001 Alero, rear defrost isn't working at all, frost inside my car, won't defrost and heat isn't working! :( HELP any idea's... I thought it was the heater core but there isn't any leakage un


You definatly have water inside the car. Pull the carpet back in the front and rear checking for water leaks. The only way frost can develope inside a vehicle is the presents of moisture.
The other possibility is your HVAC drain is plugged and water has built up inside the heater motor area. Have the drain checked and cleaned.

2001durango slt no heat in front


I have a 2001 Black Durango that had the same problem. There is a resister to the right of the ac/heat blower (underneath the dash on passaenger side). This needs to be replaced. You might want to replace the motor as well. Both are real easy. I had replaced the resister first and everthing worked fine for about 6 months and then my ac/heat would only works on high. I replaced the motor and now it works just fine. The resister was about $15 at dealership and the motor is prob around $40-$50. I hopes this helps. Good Luck!
