Ford Ka - Blowing Hot Air
Posted 03 July 2012 - 10:17 AM
I wonder if anyone can help, my 06 reg KA has been blowing out hot air no matter what temperature the temperature dial is set to. It is a nightmare on the rare hot days we have :-)
I have used a multimeter on the plug going to the heater control valve, I got different readings depending on where the dial was set to, including a pulsing for mid-range. This prompted me to go out and get a new OEM heater control valve thinking that was the part that was faulty. I have replaced the valve and once the engine heats up I am still getting hot air no matter where the dial is.
Can anyone shed any light on where the problem may be?

I would take it out and see if you can get the solenoid work. When set to cold it should be closed and the voltage should be circa 12v . Hot it will be open and at 0 volts.
