No, it would be too inexpensive to simply replace the drive belt first as a trial.

Did that work? Do you know which relay to replace? I cannot find the info in the manual.

WWEST, Looks like I've got it fixed. I totally agree with you that the noise is from some bad friction between magnetic clutch and rotor, but I was not sure if is from a bad belt, tortured axils, some dirty stuff stocked in between, or not enough current to produce ample megnetic field so that clutch would not get close enough to the rotor. So, I started with the cheapest try, changing battery......and amazingly, it stopped......at least for today. I am glad that this is easy and hope it'll be a real problem solver. Will keep you guys posted.

Look for RR A/C relay in fuse/relay box next to battery in driver's side of engine compartment. The relay next to it labeled HTR is for the front blower motor. If you switch the two the problem should move from the back to the front. The relays pull straight out but are very tight in the socket. You can take the cover off the bad relay and polish the contacts with crocus cloth if you are so inclined. A new one cost me around $20 and only the Toyota dealer had it. Last year I replaced the rear relay with a repaired one and it has worked ever since. Good luck!

#134 of 182 2005 Toyota Sienna Mini Van Heat at idle question
Nov 29, 2010 (7:11 am)
I have 95,000 on the Sienna and have not had any major issues. Since last winter, I have a new battery and new belt. Perhaps this is an issue where the belt is incorrect?
The heat works but when at idle, the air comes out cold. The heat is back instantly as soon as the car is moving. Any ideas on why this is occuring?

That's so strange I just had to respond.
Do you have recirc on? Or fresh air?
I would try toggling that to see if it makes a difference.
Wonder if some vaccum hoses are loose and the leak prevents certain trap doors from opening in those circumstances?
I know for the intake a vaccum tube opens a secondary port for more air at high revs.

You have a "vapor lock", air bubble, in the coolant hose to the heater core. Check coolant level.
