Default heater question

The heater blower on my 86 samurai will only work on the first two settings not on high, and when selector knob is on defrost it blows hot air fine but when I switch it to front vents it blows cold air. This is my first samurai project so I am green and dont really want to pull dash out if I dont have to. Anyone with some advice/suggestions?

It sounds like your switch is bad for the high fan. The vents are designed to blow cold only anytime.

thanks, there were two wires broke off of the switch, i resoiderd them were it looked like the belonged but still wont blow on high. Your saying the adjustable dash vents wont blow hot air by design, seems weird. Thanks again.

Thats normal. Cold only from the vents. Look at the little color code on the slide control and you'll see blue for cold at the vent setting.

Suzuki spents lots of $$$$$$$$$$ on R & D.

Theory....

Cold are drops... there fore no need to make it come out the bottom like modern vehicles.

Hot air rises... no need to put hot air from the dash... you won't heat effiently.


Common sense ppl!

got it... I was just used to modern rigs and was just hoping to blow more toward back for passengers no biggy. Now that I have fixed the high speed on blower there is plenty of heat. Thanx

Cool! Good to hear you got the third speed working again!!

I hear it quite common, since these vehicles are getting up there in age now..

What did you do to fix it, in case I ran into this problem down the road??

If you experience very cold climates, I would recommend looking at the carpet that lo-range off road . com sells. It would serve as GREAT insulation for the cold.

Also I would look for a removable hard top. I'v seen them goes for as cheap as $200 on craigslist.
