The difference in heater controls!Ok! First of all every car has a heater core-a heater core has coolant running through it at engine temp. This is what heats the car when you turn the temp. control to warm!

The climate control does the same job as your heater control! But, is electronicly controlled! Climate control is nice but it is very expensive to fix if something breaks! So, if its up to you which one you want but think of the cost!

Maybe because your climate control system needs to be repaired....

The heater control valve on your Pontiac Grand Prix is located behind the kick plate, on the passenger side of the passenger compartment. The heater control valve is near the heater core box.

The heater on a 1999 Caravan doesn't have a heater valve. The temp is regulated with a blend air door that is controlled by the body computer and climate controll head.

location of heater control valve on 2005 mercury marguis ?

Could the heater door actuator be bad? What is the cost to replace? This Grand Prix has a dual-zone climate control and when the AC is on, the passenger side vents often change to heat when the control is still on cold.

The problem is with the blend doors. Check www.heatertreater.net for diagnostic information and an inexpensive fix.

The HeaterTreater is an after market kit that solves heater and AC blend door malfunctions for the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Laredo. It is much cheaper than the dealership fix and is easy to install. For diagnosis and info, check out www.heatertreater.net or search eBay for "heatertreater".

You most likely require an A/C system recharge. There should be a temp sensor under the hood near the passenger firewall connected between heater hoses to control the ac and heater temperature. Replace that first.

The best way to find the location of a part on your car is to go to Autozone.com Once there, create an account, add your car to "my vehicles." In search key in part you are looking for, to the left of the part you should see "View Job Diagram." Click on and a repair guide image showing location of part will come up. The diagram will show the climate control system for heater related parts such as the Blend Door Actuator, Heater Core, Heater Hose Clamps, Heater Motor Resistor, Heater Control Vavle, and Blower Motor.

Low Coolant? Bad thermostat? Heater core plugged or restricted? Heater core airbound? Heater control cable not working?

Check your climate control switches, and vaccuum lines. If you have electronic climate control, you probably need to have it serviced. Quite often in Grand Am's 91-2002 have had minor problems with weak linkages within the housing and routing of the climate control rod's and lines.

If you have Climate Control, the Climate Control Unit has gone bad. This is the unit inside of the car that you use to select A/C or heat. It would have a digital readout. You can usually get one from a junk yard for about $100. A new one is over $400. It's very easy to change out.

Behind the radio and ac/heater control unit

There isn't one. If your heater is not operating properly you most likely have a broken blend door inside the dash.

You need to first check that you do not have any vacuum leaks and then check the a/c / heater door operations, if all are working then its possible that you have a slightly clogged heater core.........

Low coolant? Heater core airbound, resgtricted, or plugged? Bad thermostat? Heater control cable not adjusted properly?

No. one heater core, two airflow control doors. Called blend doors, very prone to breaking.
