Customer Question
2012 chevy express van...

2012 chevy express van, 1500, cold air but very little to no heat. I Installed a new resistor and pig tail, because there was a short and melted one of the connections. All is good, good fan speed on all levels but little not no heat.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked to make sure the thermostat is working? What about the coolant level?

Coolant level is good; but I don't know how to check thermostat guess I need to look that up. ;)

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Van 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, self repair; only replaced parts mentioned above.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Is the temp gauge getting to normal in the dash after running for a while?
