Could be a few things. First of all check the coolant level ( when the engine is cold ) If this is OK it's possible that the heater matrix is partially blocked & is only transferring the heat when there is a high flow of coolant or the plastic impeller on the inside of the water pump is loose and isn't circulating the coolant around the engine properly. Hope this helps & good luck !

Why does it take a long time for heater to come on?


The heater works with the hot water of the car radiator, on colder days it takes the water sometime up to 15 minutes to get hot. The heater in the car does not use electric heating etc, the safest form of heating inside the car is done through a fan running over a water heated core.

I have a 2005 buick le sabre and the heater sometimes works and sometimes doesn't


Sounds like the heater matrix is blocked hence you have a little heat until you turn the blower on whereby it comes out cold because there's no more. Get someone to check the temp of the heater hoses when running and check for an airlock in the heater. These can be tricky to clear. Make sure the coolant is full at all times.

If your engine temp reads warm then your heater core is clogged. Try flushing the system. If it reads cold then u need a new thermostat

My car heater works fine sometimes and other times no heat comes out until I hit a bump in the road and it works.


this problem is most commonly caused by either a sticky air temp control blend door or a defective blend door electric actuator, this door controls the air temp at the heater/AC oulets.

Pretty sure I have answered this about a million times. Blower motor is on engine side of firewall on passenger side. You can run a hot lead to it to check if it's working! You did check fuse... Right?

I had a similar problem with AC & Heater fan,it works on and off, and sometimes if the road was rough it runs, So I had to remove the fan clean it with a blower from dust and debris, then I installed it back and it is running ever since for more than a year without having to replace it.

Heater works part time


Can be low coolant level or water pump problem.
Check the coolant level.
Also alternator (serpentine belt) can be a problem too.
Good Luck
