Question about 2001 Jeep Wrangler

Open Question

The temperature control knob doesn,t shut heat off . The vents throw out heat all the time. I can't adjust it to shut the heat off. I thought a cable may have come undone and don,t know if I should look under the hood or if I have to take the dash apart. Thanks, Mike

SOURCE: Center dash lights out.

Like stated above there are 3 small bulbs soldered onto the cuircut board. To replace yourself you must remove the radio bezel above and the shift bezel, these just snap into place though be carefull and always try to pull evenly to avoid breaking any tabs. The whole heater panel then can be pulled off. Unclip all the wiring harnesses, then unscrew the heater control itself from the panel. Remove the back of the heater unit to access the cuircut board. Remove the burnt bulbs by the base, slowly wiggling the base until they snap off. Go to radio shack and buy bulb #272-1141 (mini lamp 12Volts, 25mA). Remove the wires from the new bulb and melt off the glue on the base of the bulb with a lighter. Now you will have two metal leads exposed at the base of the bulb. Insert the leads into the base you removed from the cuircut board and slightly bend outwards so the base stays on. Dab a little bit of solder onto each of the prongs, then solder each prong onto the appropriate cuirtcut. be careful with the soldering iron not to touch any other areas of the cuircut board. I would suggest buying the long thin attachment for this procedure, as the prongs are small and the base of the bulb will be close to the cuircut board when soldering. This procedure is not for the novice, and if you are I would practice practice practice before you attempt to install the bulbs. I have done basic soldering before but nothing on cuircut boards, and I changed 3 burnt bulbs no problem, though I have to buy extra bulbs because on my first attempt I cut all of the metal leads off. Cost me about 5$ to do, since I already have a soldering iron. Good luck.

SOURCE: Air Conditioning Dual Temperature will not adjust

The dual mode blend air door has a broken pivot on the passenger door. There is a revised part available through Chrysler. A couple things to know, Your entire instrument panel will be either removed or rolled back into the seat to gain access to the heater housing which is where the blend door lives. If your dealer says $150 to open the dash, you need a different dealer. He either isn't aware of the on going problem with the WJ's or doesn't have a qualified Jeep tech to work on it. This job usually is about 5 hours or so and will cost closer $750. It can be done in your driveway if you're patient and have plenty of time.

Where is the air and heat blend motor on a 2000 dodge dakota?


Hi Sharon, I'm glad to help. Your 2000 year doesn't have a motor for the temp door. It operated by a cable running from the control head to the temp door and you work it manually. If you can't control the temperature from hot to cold, sometimes the cable come off or breaks. Here how you can see the cable to see if its working. Remove the radio and right behind it you will see the cable attached to the door, while watching it move the temp lever from hot to cold and watch it. If it is moving then its most likely out of ajustment. If it is not moving, then you'll need a new cable. Just in case it is moving, I'm attaching the instruction on how to adjust it below. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Sharon!



TEMPERATURE CONTROL CABLE

Any time the heater-A/C control or the temperature control cable are removed and/or replaced, the following procedure must be performed.
  1. The temperature control cable housing and core must be installed at both the heater-A/C control and the heater-A/C housing ends, and the heater-A/C control must be installed in the instrument panel. See Heater-A/C Control and Temperature Control Cable in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.
  2. Rotate the temperature control knob on the heater-A/C control so that the knob pointer is in the 12 o'clock position.
  3. Pull the temperature control knob straight out from the heater-A/C control base until the perimeter of the knob (not the knob pointer) protrudes about 6 millimeters (0.25 inch) from the face of the control base.
  4. Rotate the temperature control knob to the 1 o'clock position. Push in on the knob slightly and continue rotating the knob to its full clockwise stop. The knob pointer should be aimed at a position about 8 millimeters (0.315 inch) beyond the end of the graduated red strobe temperature control graphic on the face of the heater-A/C control base. If the knob is not pointed to the correct position, go back to Step 2 and repeat the adjustment procedure.
  5. Rotate the temperature control knob counterclockwise until the knob pointer is in the 12 o'clock position again.
  6. Push the temperature control knob straight in towards the heater-A/C control base until the perimeter of the knob (not the knob pointer) is flush with the face of the heater-A/C control base.
  7. Rotate the knob to its full clockwise stop again. The knob pointer should be aimed at the end of the graduated red strobe temperature control graphic on the face of the heater-A/C control base. If OK, go to Step 8. If not OK, go back to Step 2.
  8. Rotate the knob to its full counterclockwise stop and release the knob. If the knob springs back from the counterclockwise stop, the self-adjuster clip that secures the temperature control cable to the blend-air door lever is improperly installed. See Temperature Control Cable in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures. If the knob does not spring back, the temperature control cable adjustment is complete.

How to repair


i'd think that the vent adjuster knob/slider is not working correctly strip out the heater panel around the control knobs and check the vent direction is working properly either stiff operation so a little wd40 on the cable would probably do the trick or some thing causing the vent itself to not move

Check the blend door cable for proper attachment to the control panel and to the blend door. Try opening the door manually to see the you can get hot air out. If not, the door may be broken inside the heater box. If yes, correct/adjust the cable attachment for proper operation.

No air flow through the rear vents with ac or heat on high


make sure the control knob on the dash is on "RR". This lets the driver control all the vents in the back. The heat only comes out of the floor vents, if you have the knob on the blue dots that represents the air conditioning in which the cool air will come out of the vents up above in the back. There is also an area on the control knob on the dash where you can turn the knob to shut the heat and air conditioning off. If the knob is in this position then you can control everything with the knob up above the seat right behind the driver's seat.

is it the temperature control knob or the fan speed knob? the temperature control knob is hooked to a cable that operates a valve in the engine compartment. sounds like this is your trouble area...you can open the hood and locate the heater control valve near the firewall...have someone turn the knob to see if the valve lever opens/closes. if it does it is bad. if it does not move there is a problem in the dashboard behind the heater control unit.
