Re: brava heater died

there is a connector on the front of the fuse/relay box under the dash, which supplies the fan. one of the pins overheats and burns up causing lack of fan, so pull off the connectors and check each one carefully. disconnect the battery first before going at it.

Re: brava heater died

I also have a problem with heating.
My car has air conditioning, and the heating does not work.
I adjust the temperature but the air is always cold.
The fan works normally.

Does the temp gauge get to halfway..?

Do the tubes going into cabin get HOT?

Re: brava heater died

Thanks for the interest.

The car has automatic air conditioning, it is 100 16V ELX, 2000 model, it has temperature selector with AUTO position for the fan.
The temperature indicator is functioning normally always stops in the middle of its motion.

I have not check the tubes, but i will do this tomorrow.
I will also make a preventative vent in the heating circuit to solve the problem, though I do not believe it will do anything, because I have not disturbed the circuit for a long time.

Today I noticed something more. There is a place for dehumidification on the right rotary selector switch named MAX DEF and is not working.

Re: brava heater died

Hi.

Thats the standard dash.. my mereas had that

You push a button for aircon..

Its NOT CLIMATE CONTROL..


Today .. check the tubes for HEAT..

I still suspect you have a coolant circulation problem (airlock)

Re: brava heater died

It is a climate system .... but 20 years old

For the problem i did check the tubes and these were both hot, i did also a Ventilation of the system.

I touched with my hands the point where the inner radiator was located and it was warm, so the water was circulating.

After this i put out the nnumber 10 in the following diagram:



This spare called electric motor:



Turning the temperature selector from side to side the shaft rotated normally.
But the inside flap was stuck in the cold position.
Using a pinch, I turned it .
After this i put the electric motor on again and at the moment it is working fine.

Also is working and the function MAX DEF, maybe it needs an information from the potensiometer which is inside the electric motor.
