  • Heating problem

    The heater in the rear of the truck works but the heater in the front won't come on at all. How can I get it working as the cold weather is close
    .thanks in advance

    Have you checked the fuses? I'm not sure where the heater fuse is but it'll either be in the engine bay or behind the drivers kick panel.
    It might be an easy fix with the fuses but if not use the search function on here or Google it and you may get some more answers.
    hope you get it sorted dude it's definitely started to get colder now

        Fuse? What fuse? Check heater tap is opening. If not maybe cable broken or kinked. Next check operation of vents. again may be cable or electrical.

              The fan runs the whole time. But have found the problem there's leaves and sticks in the heater fan which is stopping it from spinning. When I give it a a few kicks it starts but makes noises of stuff blocking it.

                I had a family of mice nesting in there , they had to be evicted . By keeping the switch set on recyrculating cabin air , instead of outside air intake, I have stopped them from entering again.

                  Hi I've cleaned the fan and also found there was a bit of movement in the fan axel so solved the movement with metal putty and now no movement at all.

                      Well thats clarified everything, (not). Are you saying the fan doesnt move at all? As in not going round and round, or are you talking about some kind of shaft axial movement that the magic putty has fixed, and fan is now spinning freely and pushing hot air around ?

                        The heater fan has an axel where the bushes are because the fan has dropped slightly because of wear and tear the fan would not engage and by putting the metal putty around the back end of the shaft it has kept it in place so now the fan works.

                          Imagine me smiling Alex (as there's no smileys) well Daniel is it all working as it should?, you said the fan runs all the time? that'd probably mean the switch on the heater unit in the dash is ferked, (I am assuming you have a Gen 2, 2.4 by the way) I used to do led mods on these and several I did for guys had nearly burnt out switches or distorted plastic above it where it had got very hot, not easy to get at, the unit needs to be removed and even then it's a bugger, I think it was switches like these that caused all the problems with Vauxhall a while back, if you can check and it is melted or gets hot I'd unplug it and trace the leads and rewire the feed to a 40amp relay, then via the relay back to the switch leads, (and fit another 3 position switch, (I have one coming on ebay which I now wont need so if you want it let me know, it's a rotary three position, you'd need to test the plug pin outs to find which wires run the 3 speeds and which is pos supplu and which is ground, ian
