    My kids love to sit in the back (very short trips only - I'm sure it's illegal). However, if I went and put a seat back there, I'm sure they would hate it.

    With an 04, I would doubt that it could be a clogged heater core so I would suspect the air temperaure actuator. I just had this go bad on my front HVAC which is an 02 Suburban.
