Question about 1996 Chrysler Concorde
I got a 90 F150 got involved in a hit and run, did most of the repairs myself, had to replace the heater core and box and heater works but only comes out through the defrost area, someone said the door is stuck, but where is that I can't find it any help? Also had to replace headlights and now can't get them adjusted right, book says to use another vehicle for the marks, I don't have another one isn't there like measurements of where the center should be, was hoping someone would know what they are or how to do this, I keep adjusting a little and can't seem to get it right for when your driving. Looks good on the wall but not driving. Thanks
The heater problem could be a vacuum issue. My 89 has vacuum operated acutators, so if you had all of that out, all the vacuum connections for the heater box and controls may not be connected correctly. I would check those first. The actual door is a flapper door inside the heater box up under the dash, probably center or slightly right of center. Follow all the ducts and where all of those go into the heater box is where the door is inside.
For the headlights, I like to adjust mine on a flat dark road. It is difficult to adjust them againist the side of a wall. If your truck suffered front end damage, there is a chance your core support is bent backwards which would affect the adjustment range of your headlights.
There are actual headlight aiming machines, and you could pay to have yours done, but I have had really good luck as well as getting them even when its dark and you can see whats going on and what kind of pattern the lights are shining.

It is pretty common for this problem to be a bad headlight switch. I would advise testing the switch before replacing it. That being said I would give it a 90% plus chance of being a bad headlight switch. If you want to test it yourself I would recommend getting a good repair manual at a major auto parts store. This will have a wiring diagram in it and will allow you to test the switch ones it is removed.
