cold air coming out of vents when heat is wanted

Asked by Feb 24, 2015 at 02:01 PM about the 2005 Chrysler Town & Country Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When we start our van the vents blow consistent cold air when the adjustment is for heat no matter how long we "warm it up".  Sometimes we can rev the engine up which will, for some reason, get the heat coming out, but usually it takes driving it for a while before any heat will come out.  What do you think the issue is?

The problem is the vent doesn't open to let in the hot air. My husband actually goes through the glove compartment and opens it so I can have the heat come through. Fan works fine. Problem is it doesn't stay open on it's own very long. Dealerships want $1000 to fix this problem because they take off the dash and replace the part which opens and closes. Possibly the actuator.
