JEEP Grand Cherokee heating doors failure.

If you are in the UK mid England a there is a specialist firm that does this job in 2 hours for 260 12 month warranty. All the chaps above are heroes but I feel a firm that does these all the time will save my mentality!
EDL engineering of Bicester near Oxford. Just Google Jeep Bicester.

Which such a splenid car, why did they make such a mess off this design so for so long. The rest of this vehicle is so rugged for hard work but my hairdryer is built to a better spec than this plastic item.

So, in the summer, A/c on, which way should I have it? closed blocking outside air or open and let outside air come in? I need to know because mines just recently broke last week.

If you have it just recirc the inside air, it will be colder ac and hotter heat. But it messes with the defrost. If you ever notice your windows fogging up you need to crack a window to get the "stale" air out. But I would set it to recirc the inside air.

By inside you mean block the outside air? I use A/c when it rains or too hot outside but most of the time windows are down during summer. Also, I clean my windows often.

Recirculate means to keep using the inside air, not the outside. So yep. If I were to do it (luckily not yet) I would recirc the inside air.

Alright, just making sure. So what the best way to close it. I can push it by hand but it falls down. I don't see where I can zip tie it to.

If you can't zip tie it put something in there to hold it up..

Hey everyone,
I just removed the glove box to check how things are working and looks like so far everything is quite ok with the recicr door (although it is jerking a little when moving sometimes).

My question is: Is it normal that the door close (i.e. recirc is ON) when you turn the engine off and then it moves back to open position (to allow outside air) when you start the engine? Why is that? I think that puts a lot of load on the recirc door as they are moving very often without a reason.....

recirc door question

I have my '99 WJ apart for a heater core replacement; I'm looking at the heater box now and I see the recirculation door is hanging straight down and swings freely, whereas the blend doors are fixed shut. Is this normal for the recirc door or is it a sign of a problem? I'm thinking that it may drop down when power is shut off?
Thanks-
Gerry

Wj Failure Code 46

Hi everyone,

This past winter, with the heat on, I go hot air on the drivers side, cold air from the passenger side. I am getting codes 46-52-56. I have previously fixed the blender doors, so my question is ...is it the motor or the recirc door? Maybe both?

52 is the recirc door, travel to large. Which basically means the recirc door is not working as it should
56 is right blend door door. As I recall 46 is the driver blend door. If the motors are not working and the doors are stuck First check fuses. Access to the driver side motor is easy but the passinger side motor is tough. I had a 52 56 and replaced the blend doors but even though I had a 52 the recirc door still works but may fail as the shaft is probably cracked. The recirc door can be prop open with a $5.00 kit but the recirc doors cost $100.

By opening the glove box and twisting the stops at the top, the driver motor can be iewed to see if it is working. (It is held on with 2 screws. Good luck

Bringing back an oldie here fellas! Im pretty sure my recirc door has had it. If i do this fix it turns OFF recirc mode (meaning air always comes from outside) correct?

NM. I should have read pages 2-4 also. LOL! Im sure my recirc door is my problem. Both sides blow hot or cold but the the passenger side BARELY blows whether it is hot or cold indicating to me a partial obstruction caused by a broken recirc door. Also, when i change recirc mode there doesn seem to be any change in air flow.

Sort of "yes".
The fix does NOT turn off anything. The fix just blocks the inside air path so all that is available is the path to outside air
