Sounds like the air "blend" door might be inoperable. This door opens and closes a specified amount to regulate the amount of either cooled or heated air, as requested by the climate control unit. If the door is continually in the position which is bypassing the heater core (cold setting), the air will not get warm regardless of the condition/operation of the heater core. I'd suggest having this component checked.

Stacey
sounds like your blower motor is OK so either the hot water is not getting through the heater core, or the air is not being routed across the heater core. If the hoses or core are blocked, that would do it or if an air door is not allowing the air to the core.

Hopefully it won't come to core removal, but this video should illustrate what is going on. There are also videos for unplugging the core. good luck

There should be a actuator valve on the line that determines if the heater core gets hot water or cold water. When the heater is selected, the actuator opens and lets hot water into the heater core. It sounds like that actuator is corroded and not opening.

Heater blowing out cold air


Several things.
If the heater hoses are hot, the problem could be a blend door under the dash. The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and out the vents.

Could the thermostat cause the heater to only blow cold air even though the motor runs normal temp on a 2003 dodge caravan


1st of all, you need to check your anti-freeze level. If its not full, the coolant cannot/will not flow throughout your heater core which the coolant flow through to heat your vehicle. If it is indeed up to the proper level? Than, yes I would look into the thremostat. It may not be opening up.

Most likely the problem is a broken blend door inside the heater box or a broken adjuster cable going to the blend door, the blend door inside the heater box is responsible for heater output depending on your temp adjustment on your heater control panel, most likely the blend door is stuck in the cold position allowing cold air to come through the vents verses allowing the blower motor to blow warm air past the hot heater core to produce heat, check the temperature adjuster cable behind your heater controls and make sure its connected and not broken, lastly make sure the blend door isnt broken and operating freely.

2005 Grand Prix heater works fine when blower is off-air coming thru vent gets hot; once blower is turned on air turns cold. Why?


Sounds like a clogged heater core- insufficient coolant circulating through heater core, and as soon as you blow air past the core, it get cooled off.

My heater is not working in my 2001 honda civic. Is it my thermostat?


Does the heater blow cold air from the vents or do you mean the there is no airflow from the vents? cold air from the dash vents when the heater control valve is set fully hot could be an air pocket in the cooling system. The radiator sits slightly lower than the engine causing air pockets to get trapped in the engine when you replace the coolant. you'll have to purge the cooling system to restore flow to the heater core. No airflow (blower motor inop) this could be a bad blower motor transistor. pin test the blower motor circuit.
