Can't Turn Off Heat

Can't Turn Off Heat

Postby MacQ [OP] » Oct 16 2020, 6:40pm

It appears that the blend door actuator may be the problem. So I did a search on that and came up with 53 pages on this forum. I only read the odd number of pages and only came across one that closely resembles my problem.

When I turn the temperature control dial for a low amount of heat, it will stay at a low amount of heat even if I turn the dial back to no heat.

If I turn the dial to high heat, it will stay at high heat even if I turn the dial back to no heat.

If I turn on the AC when the heat is stuck on, I only get heat.

If I turn the dial to no heat and turn off the truck for about 5 minutes, I can start it back up and the truck will blow non-heated air and the AC blows cold. But let me turn up the dial and the heat comes up and will stay there until I turn the dial back to cool and turn off the truck for about 5 minutes.

Does this still sound like a blend door actuator problem? If so, that's where I'll start.

He solution os painfully obvious, simply move somewhere that you need heat year round. Duhhh.

Sounds like a blend door actuator to me.
