#116 of 519 Manual Control of 2002 JGC Blend Doors?
Aug 31, 2007 (5:48 am)
I have read several of the discussions regarding the well-known HVAC "blend door" problem on various models of Jeep Grand Cherokee. I am now having that problem on my 2002 JGC Overland and the repair estimates range between $900 to $1200. Most of the expense, it seems, is the labor because you must remove the dashboard and instrument panel to get to the blend door actuators to repair/replace them.
I was wondering if anyone on this forum would know how to go about rigging a "manual" control for the blend door(s). Especially if that could be done without removing the entire instrument panel. I was thinking about a control much like an old push-pull manual choke on a carburetor -- just something to open and close the blend doors (if they're not cracked) to control the heat and air. Would something like that work?

there is a door above your fan that swings back and forth to regulate wheather the airecirculates or is fresh. it has broken off and is lying on top of your fan outlet. reach up above the fan (while the car is off) stick your fingers in the plactic grate there towards the fan. You will probably feel the door lying there. If you lift the door up out of the way it will temp fix your problem. You will probably have to use a coat hanger or such to get it lifted out of the way. Otherwise, it's off with the dash. It could be worse... belive me... my passenger heat doesn't work... the fix is PAINFULL.

My wife purchased a 2007 Grand Cherokee in July and complains of exactly the same thing. Air is cold only when on coldest setting, but back it off by a single click of the temperature dial and the air temp is significantly less cold. It's full-cold or not-at-all-cold - no in-between. I recently read that Chrysler put out a service bulletin for the Commander for as similar problem wherein they reflash the computer. In that case though it was probably auto climate control and our Jeep has manual temperature controls. Do you or anyone else know of any updated information. Please let me know how we can help get this resolved. Thanks
