The thermostat might be gone or needs a bigger thermostat

Heater not working


What does that mean? It blows air but not hot air? It doesn't blow air at all with A/C or heat? I assume you mean it blows, just not hot. If so, make sure your car is running at operating temp. If the car isn't warming up, your thermostat is stuck open and the coolant can't heat up enough to transfer heat from the heater core to the air you're blowing out the vents. If your car warms up to operating temp just fine, you may have a heater core issue. Your core may be clogged with corrosion thus not allowing heat transfer as well. If the valve on the inlet hose to your heater core is bad it won't allow hot coolant into the heater core, once again no heat to the air blowing out your vents. One of these is most likely your issue. I hope this helps.

Driver's side defroster and heater vents blow cold air but the passenger side blows hot. Both sides should blow hot The temp is set any temp and it still does the same thing. It is winter so I don't know...


The doors that open and close in the heater control unit are ran by motors. It sounds like a motor has quit in yours. When turning on the defrosters the motor closes the door to the heat for the floor

1999 Lincoln Navigator stops blowing hot air


Since your blower is working and it is a heat issue,thats where we'll start,First thing is have you checked the coolant level in the radiator when engine is cold,make sure it is filled to top,next verify you have coolant in reserve ,Start your van and get it up to normal operation temperature,If your heat gauge on the dash works correctly it should be 190 degrees,Now lift the hood and locate the two heater hoses going into the heater assembly at the fire wall,Both hoses should be hot to hold on to,if both are hot and no heat inside your problem will be the blend air door in heater assembly.
if neither hose is that hot you need to replace the thermostat in the engine to get it up to 195 degrees.
if one hose is hot and one is luke warm then the heater core is blocked and to blame. hope this helps you.

The blower works and a/c works but no heat comes out


If the blower is blowing air just fine, but you cannot control the temperature, you need to listen to air coming from the vents while turning the temperature from hot to cold. If you do n ot hear any change in airflow, then you may a temperature door in the dash broken. this is becoming a common problem on the Equinox

Blowing hot air


The heater valve on these cars are hard to access. If you are trying to get rid of the heat, a quick solution is putting a valve on the heater hose from the outside. Cut the hose and install a valve in which you can regulate the amout of hot coolant going into the heater core. Since its summer you might as well shut the valve once installed. Winter time comes just open them up again.
