Sounds as if the car is not getting warm enough, which could mean that your thermostat is stuck in the open position. Try changing it. That should take care of the problem. Depending on which brand you get, the thermostat will most likely cost you between $8.00-$16.00.

Also, check the coolant level. Make sure its at a proper level. The Temperature Sensor could be bad as well.

SOURCE: Tape Deck does not recognize tape adapter. Does not eject.

Just an idea .. In the past I have removed hungry decks from my cars. A lot easier to work on / dismantle than in dash. gently remove the casing and you should find the tape deck a separate component within the whole unit.Hook up via alligater clips to battery to power up and alligater clips to a speaker lead to hear. saves a lot of stress. Usually done for chewwed up and swallowed tape. results are good, surprisingly.

Cheers !

Hi, in most cars it's much easier than in yours. I have pasted the procedure below from Autozone.com. Please let me know if you have questions. Also, I would be happy to confirm for you that you need a new panel if you can tell me the symptoms you are having.

Removal & Installation

  2. Remove or disconnect the following:
    NOTE When the control panel assembly is out, it will have to be disconnected from the wire harness and control cables.
    Center panel assembly Front driver's side under cover Front passenger's side under cover Radio/tape/CD player Floor console Instrument panel center reinforcement Foot duct (LH) Control panel assembly
    Light bulb harness Defroster switch Air mix damper control cable Air outlet changeover control cable

To install:
  1. Attach control cables to control panel
    1. Set the air outlet changeover control knob on the heater control assembly to the defroster position.
    2. Set the air outlet changeover damper link of the heater/cooler unit to the defroster position as shown in the illustration, and then connect the cable to the link pin.

    A.S.A.P. 2000 ford escort zx2- heater not working


    i cannot tell you exactly where it is but I do know there are flaps that move as you turn the heat knob. it mixes hot and cold air to get the determined temp. if the door is stuck in the cold position though you will get no heat. all I can tell you is it will be in the middle to passenger side and you should see some sort of linkage hooking to it. note there is a direction/panel defrost etc. flap
    there is a fresh air recirculate flap.
    there is ahot cold flap. so what I am trying to say is if you dont get it on the first one keep trying. it could have electric actuators that move these flaps so dont necessarily look for metal rods or cables.generally you can tell if when you turn your knobs and they are very easy it is electric. but if you feel some resistance it will have cables/rods going to them. just start digging under that dash.
