There are multiple items that could cause this. First off Chevy came out with ECO cool orange coolant on their cars with out first finding out that it was corrosive to certain plastics and rubber. So if you have this coolant in the 96 beretta it could have ate through one of your hoses.

Also by now your car is over ten years old and depending on the environment in which you drive the car could have created a crack in your radiator. The previous 96 beretta that I owned cracked all down one side. There is never a good fix for this except for replacing the radiator.

These cost about 100 at your local parts store and take the weekend to replace. If you still have the ecocool coolant though I would suggest that when you replace your radiator that you also switch to the standard green coolant. This will not harm your car and you will have less of a chance for your coolant to corrode something.

'96 Beretta has no heat. Coolant level okay. Fan


when you start the car and let it warm up, does it reach normal operating temp.? Does the needle stay in the middle? If not, it's time to replace the thermostat. If it's ok, then your blend door is stuck or broken and may need replacement or repair. when you move the control to hot or cold, the blend door opens accordingly allowing cold hor hot air in.

How to install front struts 1996 beretta


I believe these are equipped with McPherson struts and a spring compressor is required to replace the struts. It is possible to DIY but the spring compressor is mandatory to prevent the compressed spring surrounding the strut from wreaking havoc once released.
