SOURCE: heat will not switch on
sound like a stuck blend door motor, not switching back and forth from hot to cold. the most likley cause is a bad heater control panel not commanding the motor to move as requested.

Sure take your buddy with you when you go so he can drive you away while they fix it but you do the talking with your buddy standing by ready to leave. Yes low on freon condensate drain stopped up fan belt loose or needes replaced. This is an old car and the mechanics will likly find many things wrong with it make sure they know that you what them to run it awile after it's fixed so that it in with some gas in the tank so they won't worry about running out. Should get alot of repairs done for less than $200

Testimonial: "Thanks very much for your speedy and helpful reply!"
First thing to check: Does the temperature gauge in your car go up to normal quickly when starting out in the morning? If not, replace the thermostat in the engine. It is stuck open. . Then do this: Check to see if the cable actually moves a lever on a device that has hoses hooked up to it on your firewall in the engine compartment. Have an assistant help you by moving the control levers. If no control levers, the duct system is operated by vacuum and one of the doors that throttles the hot air into the passenger compartment has quit working. You'll have to check to see if that vacuum motor is operational. You'll need a manual to make the job easier. . Hopefully it is the first problem, as the second one is rather difficult to troubleshoot and get to (under the dash).

It sounds to me like you have a plugged heater core, or one that is beginning to plug. With the engine running, carefully feel the two hoses that lead from the engine into the heater core in the firewall. If one of those hoses is colder than the other one then you heater core needs to be replaced. This involves removing a bunch of stuff under the dash. Sometimes it's pretty easy and sometimes not. Start by removing the glove box and you should be able to see the plastic housing for the heater core.

There is a well known problem that is a manufacturer's defect with the soldered connection on the circuit board behind the temperature knob. There is a fix to re-solder the connections but the dealer will gladly take $450 to replace it with the same bad board that will last you a while. Look for the link to show you how to fix it yourself.
