No heating in cabin


I have a X Trail 2006 4x4 40th anniversary special.

The heating has stopped working. All I get is cold air or a/c air, but that's it. What still works is as follows:

The fan works on all 4 settings;
The a/c works; and
The temperature dial turns from hot to cold (but no temperature variance is achieved)


I have had this car for around 4 years and most things that have gone wrong have been electrical (rear windows, a/c board, a/c board again,front window etc)

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi Jason,

Are you able to get engine bay heat when you turn the dial into the red zone and have the air vent set bring air from the outside? This shouldn't need anything electrical to operate and the warn air should come through as you drive even without a fan. Try this and see how you go.

Could be that a cable has snapped to open and close the vent inside the heater box.

Thanks for this, but we switched between internal and external air with no luck.

Re the other post - if the cable has snapped, how easy is this to fix???

Re:


You have to pull apart the heater box to inspect, the dial is probably electronic connected to a servo of some sort, either the servo is connected directly to the vent flap and its faulty or there is a cable / linkage connecting the two together that has snapped.

Someone here might have a picture of the heater box in exploded view from the T30 ESM that would verify this.
Kev (revheadkev) or Jalal (jalalski) might be able to do this for you.

Re:


Suggest you take the car to an auto electrician to troubleshoot, as the fault could be within the fan assembly itself and the air regulator could be faulty.

I looked in the manual and it's pretty complicated and spans-out over 10 pages.

Re:


Did this ever get worked out?

The reason I ask was that I'm pretty sure a coolant blockage caused the head-gasket failure in my 2001 Xtrail T30.
For about a month before the failure the heater would not blow hot.

It may be worth getting a coolant flush & replace with Nissan brand coolant if you haven't found the answer to your heater problems yet.
