heater vent problems
I have a 04 TJ that the heater vent control stopped switching between vent options.
Switched to the flow through option when I was using the ac. Went to change back to defrost in the morning and it didn't change even tho the knob moved. Knob moved with no resistance/clicking.
Is this a common problem?
Is it possible that something came unhooked?
How to fix?
Pull the knob off (it pulls straight off, may have to pry it a bit with a screwdriver). See if there is any obvious damage.
If there's nothing wrong visibly, the shaft may have come loose inside the switch. It's not hard to pull the whole unit apart.
I looked at the knob first. Saw nothing ( didn't have glasses on).
Called around and found that if it was a control issue, the whole assembly ( fan, heat/cold, and vent ) would have to be replaced at a cost of about $95 ( after market )
Decided to look at the knob again ( thanks JEK3) and did see some cracks on the plastic. Used some pliers and realized that the control part worked.
