    Defrost has no smell, but heater smells burnt

    I know this has been posted before but I didn't see a 100% sure fix-

    When's turn on my defrost 100% full blast there is no smell, when I leave on my heater after a couple minutes it smells burnt- not like a fire.... Like a bad burn.. Sorry. Can go explain the burning smell-

    Has anyone been able to fix this if it has happened?

    Also, my car has the P1028c code.. (I think that's it) it's the thermostat code.... I read on here that it comes on in the winter for 2003s and not to worry about it.... Is this something I need to start worrying about?

    Read that places do a heater core flush- I'm thinking about trying that Wednesday

    Don't go to Lockhart they don't know customer service they suck. Go the Ray Skillman east side. They are not a Cadillac dealer but are GMC . Ask for Ron Raifeld in service he is great to deal with and will take care of you.
