    I have no air conditioner in my prelude. If i open the controls to vent, nothing but hot air bloes into the car. If i put it on heat, nothing but hot air blows into the car. Wy question is, how do i stop the hot air from blowing into my car on the vent setting? Is there anything i can do? Im not sure if my controls are broken or not, (the little slider that you move for hot and cold). How do i fix this problem. Thanks

    umm tehre should be 2 setting for where u get ur air from. 1 has a car with an arrow coming in from the window it looks like. the other is a picture of a car with the arrow in a circle. u need to select the 1 with the arrow coming through the window, that means outside air is coming inside the car. the other is just circulating the air already inside the car. if this doesnt work, move to alaska.

    Your cable could have popped off. On my car, the dial you move opens and closes a valve on the firewall through a cable setup. One of your heater hoses would be connected to it. It basically lets the hot radiator fluid through your heater core as you open the valve. Very simple. Just a possibility that wasn't mentioned......
