Where is the heater switch located?
The heater control valve is a cooling and hvac system component that is commonly found on many road going cars and trucks. The heater control valve is typically mounted near the firewall, and acts as the valve that allows coolant to flow from the engine to the heater core, which is located inside of the vehicle.Rab.

Where is the blower motor switch located?
The motor that runs the fan in the heating and air conditioning system in a car is called a blower motor. It’s located inside the dash, often on the opposite side of the steering wheel or inside the engine compartment on the firewall.Dhuʻl-H. 22, 1442 AH
How do I know if my blower motor switch is bad?
Symptoms of a bad heater blower motor resistor
- Fan does not work at all, so no air comes out of the vents.
- Fan only works on some speeds and not others.
- Fan only works on the highest speed.
- Fan runs all the time and can’t be controlled with the fan switch.
- You see smoke coming out of the vents.
What are the symptoms of a bad heater control valve?
Here are some of the warning signs of a bad heater control valve:
- No heat comes out.
- Heat is always on and you can’t turn it down.
- Heater operates erratically, putting out more or less heat without any control changes.
- Coolant leaks.
- Low coolant level.
- Higher-than-normal temperature gauge readings (from loss of coolant)
How do you change a blower switch?
How to Replace a Blower Motor Resistor
- Step 1: Remove the glove box door, if necessary.
- Step 2: Disconnect the wiring harness and remove screws.
- Step 3: Remove and replace the blower motor resistor.
- Step 4: Tighten screws and reattach wiring harness.
- Step 5: Reinstall the glove box door.
Is there a fuse for the heater blower?
Many vehicles have two fuses for the blower motor, one in the interior fuse block and the other under the hood. The blower motor is usually under the dashboard on the passenger side.
What causes heater blower not working?
If little air is coming through the vents (hot or cold), then it could be because the blower motor for the fan or a switch or resistor that controls fan speed isn’t working. Another cause might be that the electronically controlled “blend doors” that direct air flow are stuck or broken.
Does the heater control valve affect AC?
A heater control valve controls the amount of coolant flowing through the heater core. The heater control valve allows the flow of coolant through the heater core to be controlled and switched on and off without affecting the operation of the rest of the cooling system.
Can you bypass a heater control valve?
Heater control valve bypass is not standard on vehicles; it is a modification. When bypass hoses are installed, the coolant in your car will always be circulating through the heater core – that means that if the core starts leaking, you won’t be able to turn it off.
