Problem with heated selection daewoo lanos 2000

Postby pulsardet » Thu Dec 27, 2012 1:57 pm

I own a daewoo lanos 2000, and since winter is falling on us, i live in canada, so get pretty cold here. Let me explain, I have really good heat, in the car but, even if i ajust the in dash selector, their is no heat to defrost the windshield nor feet, but the selection for the cabbin/your face is perfect with good heat.

What could it be and how do I fix this. I have search in the factory manual but found nothing about this.

There are three cables ( if my memory is correct ) for selection of vent and heat.

It's likely one is disconnected or the plastic tab has been broken off ( perhaps from installation of aftermarket stereo )

Based on language and the fact that the above person seems to be driving a RHD lanos, the position of the cable might not be as he has said.

If he is driving RHD as I suspect, and it's to the left of the clutch, that would make the cable on the passenger side of a LHD lanos up underneath the dash, may have to remove glove box, I can't remember as it's been 6-7 years since I worked on the Lanos.
