If the motors that control the doors in the duct system for heat and defrost are broken.....can they then be opened and kept open manually? I guess I am really referring to the one for my defrosters. I got the heat, but it is all on the floor ducts. I need it to come from the defrosters for the winter here in NH. If I remove radio, ECC unit, and panel of passenger knee bolster, will I then have access to this ductwork?
THANKS!

You might be able to see them But with some hard looking.

Does the ECC lights flash when you start the car?

Hi Tech, yes, the 2 lights on the AC OFF switch & Rec switch flash for about 10 seconds and then just stay on solid when car is started.
THANKS.

That means there is a code in the system.They will continue to do that till you repair the fault.

Could the defective blower risistor cause the fault? and hence, prompt the code? I am receiving the new resistor in tomorrows mail. After I Install it I will post back. Here in NH, we need those defrosters!
