Your heating and AC is one of the systems in your vehicle that you might take for granted until it isn’t working. So, what do you do when it’s freezing outside and your truck just won’t warm up or it is 100 degrees outside and your fan isn’t blowing cool air? At Cars, Trucks, & RVs, we’ve provided a few simple steps you can take to try to get your heating and AC working again:
- Check Your Fluids – Both your heating and your AC require coolant and refrigerant to work properly. If either of these is running low, you may be getting poor results when it comes to staying comfortable in your vehicle.
- Check Fan Belts – Specifically, your AC requires a serpentine belt to function properly. However, it is common that something that isn’t working in your AC system could also cause your heat not to work properly, as well. In fact, checking all of your belts and tubes could lead to a better-functioning vehicle overall.
- Check Your Fuse Box – A blown fuse can cause a lot of problems, from heating and AC that won’t work to malfunctioning interior lights and much more. If you discover that you do have a blown fuse, it will be much easier to determine the fix for your heating and AC problem.
