my wife is having a fit, her 2006 S40 with 130,000 miles on the body but a new engine with only 40K isn't giving any heat when he turns on the heater. It just blows warm air. I looked all over he net for information and found some saying it is probably the thermostat. I tried to find a video of where the thermostat is but I can't find one anywhere and I can't find it on the engine! I'm not a repair guy by any means but I can do the basic things and could remove a couple bolts. Can someone give me a good detail of exactly where it is (picture is worth a 1000words!).
something else, I saw a response to a question here about AC temp changing and it mentioned funny things happening with a low battery. I recently changed the battery I this car and immediately after the key didn't always start the car, we ended up bringing it in and they replaced the ignition for a pretty $500 bill and then I read online it is usually just the ignition antennae and should have been much less $$. Anyway, could there be a connection with the new battery going in and it throwing temp control out the window? The AC does work fine.
thanks for any help
have the same problem?
