    Blend door dilemma

    Apparently I need a blend door as I have some heat but it's very little. When I change the temperature all the way to cold the little heat I have does change to cold so apparently the actuator is working. The problem is that lists two blend doors, both for manual systems. However I...

    Eatc fan problem

    My 99 Limited with the EATC system won't allow me to reduce the fan speed. It stays on high all the time. The steering wheel control for won't slow it down either. I tried disconnecting the battery over night to no avail. Anyone have any suggestions?

    95 Limited EATC Issues and Air Suspension

    I've been driving my '95 Limited for 217,000 of its 213,000 miles. It's still got the original 4.0L Mitsubishi engine, and its compression is still 150-160 on all cylinders, with 155 being the average and median. What an engine! Finally beginning to make lifter noises, so maybe soon time for an...

    Getting at a 95 limited heater blower motor

    Hi – I have a ’95 Limited with EATC. Recently it smelt as if something was burning outside but not inside and I could not find the cause. Then the blower motor stopped but it will rotate slowly if tapped. As it will spin slowly I am assuming the fuses and relays are working. Thus I think it...

    No A/C. The EATC won't engage the compressor.
