Default Electronic Climate Control Question

Ok So here'* the deal. I was leaving work today and the outside temperature is about 35F. I drive around town about 10 minutes and the car starts to warm up. The temperature is set at 72 as usual. Well after awhile the car keeps getting hotter and hotter. I lower the temp to 60 and it starts blowing out the vents as it should except it'* still blowing hot air. I move it to auto and it does the same. Well needless to say I head for home and after about 20 minutes of driving the climate control starts to act the way it'* supposed to. So is there a valve sticking or something. It works fine except this happened one time about a year ago. Any suggestions?

It'* possible the air temperature mix door is sticking. I'm not sure that the earlier climate control models have the diagnostic tool, but you can try it.

Well the other way is to remove the glovebox and you will see a rod running horizionally across the top of the duct to a lever. This is the hot/cold door. As you go from MAX WARM to MAX COOL you should see the rod move from one limit to the other.

Coupla years ago too many papers & such were jammed into the glovebox and it overflowed over the back. Once the napkins were removed from the rod it worked properly again.

How do you like the SilverStars ?

Best thing i've done to my car in terms of lighting besides wiring my high beams up so that all 4 come on. I can see just about anything.
