Anyone Know of a Heater Control Valve Than Actuates w/12v??

A mechanic friend of mine is renovating a custom limo and wants to operate the rear heat water flow with an electric switch.

It would need hose ends or threaded ends.

The local NAPA guys are stumped and so is the local Chevy dealer.

Is there such a thing?

The newer Vintage Air all electronic units have a motor operated heater control valve. I do not know the voltage because it plugs into the electronic control module. I thought I had a bad one so I ordered a new one and figured out what was wrong with mine before it came in. So now I have a spare. Cost me about $60 I think.

Or you could use an industrial solenoid valve, just look up Asco. In spite of what the web page says the solenoid valves are available with 12 volt coils.
