My Spectra is irritating me...
Last week we had parent teacher conferences. Heater worked fine. Went to dinner, then home, heater worked fine.
Got up the next morning to go to work, the heater blew cold air, but on the way home I had the vent on cold (warm afternoon) and it only blew hot air from the floor vent, and cool air from the top vent (not the defrost area).
The following day, was cold air in all vent areas...
Checked all the buttons... checked fuses; replaced thermostat; replaced anti-freeze... no luck. The car temperature stays in the normal range, doesn't even try to over-heat, and it still blows cold air. One person says that its the heater core, another person says its the heat module; and yet another person says it might be clogged; and still someone at another garage says it has a 'bubble' ?????
The car is only 6 years old, has 90k miles on it and we've had the radiator flushed per the maintenance schedule.
The air conditioner blows fine- gets even more cold, switch it off, rev it up and the heat continues to be cold....
Someone please give me better imput- the mornings are really cold in Colorado this time of year, and I don't have patience to try everything under the sun to fix the problem.
the reason why i asked the year of the spectra and if it's had an aftermarket radio put in it is because i've seen situations where an aftermarket radio was installed on both a spectra with a mechanical based controller (earlier model spectras/sephias) and newer model spectras (02-04) which had an electronic controller. whoever put the radios in either bumped a cable on the controller or bumped a wire and caused it to loose a connection. i've also had to replace a few of the electronic based controllers because they have an internal problem and they aren't cheap.
