    I even replaced the heater core a year ago. Then as soon as winter came around I found out that some mechanic had bypassed the heater core since it's replacement and no one told me anything. Had they let me know at the time it would've been warrantied service. I still have no heat. Thank goodness it's about to be warm again.

We had the same problem in our 98 GMC Jimmy. Was blowing hot air everywher with everything shut off & air conditioning would not work. We found out it was the Blend Dood Actuator, it is located behind the glovebox. We purchased one on EBay & replaced it and are back on track again. Good luck!

How do I reset the computer so that the heater controls will work properly

Try disconnecting either the hvac control head for a few seconds or even the battery for 1-2 min.. If no change you probably have a faulty passenger side temp actuator.. Sounds like you have a dual zone setup, as in the driver and passenger can have there own temp settings.. There is a actuator for each side..

98 Ford Taurus Heat blows Full no matter how hot it is in the car and even though the Temp is turned down to 60. Also A/C does not work Blows Heat instead not just warm air actual heat. Can turn down fan...

The heater door is probably stuck in the full heat position. It could be a problem with the heater door motor or the controller - you'd have to check for both mechanical and electrical problems under the dashboard.

Fully warmed up; blowing hot and cold; Suzuki XL-7

Its just a vent damper plate not operating, it's like a gate which controls the flow of air,,usually they are operated by vacuum, or cables.
Service center time, unless you are handy with your own repairs.

I've had 2 Astros. A 1993 and a 1994, and had a problem with the heat/AC on both of them. They blew only air through the defroster no matter where I set the control, heater, A/C, floor or vent.

Both times the problem was with the VACUUM hoses in the engine compartment. The hoses had become dry, brittle and then cracked. The hoses are black tubes about the size of a drinking straw, and about 12" to 14" in length. Look for hoses that are hanging loose, they usually break off from junctions where 2 or 3 lines come together.
