Sounds like possible vacuum leak check your vacuum lines.

2.) check selector switch depending on the age of your vehicle you can get the switch assembly from a local junk/salvage yard for cheap.

Car never reaches operating temperature (cold weather) thus little to no heat inside

change the thermostat, sounds like it could stuck open and wont allow the engine reach operating temp, also test the constant control relay module located to the right of the battery as your facing the front of the car, also test coolant temp switch it might be defective and producing a high voltage that would cause the fans to constantly operate no matter the temp. Hope this helps

On my 2003 F350, the heat only comes from the defoster vents at the windshield. No matter which position I place the vent mode selector switch in, there is no change.

There sounds like there's a problem with the mode doors.I've seen lots of doors break and it usually means dash removal.first check the switch as it may be the problem.if its vacuum operated it could be defaulted to defrost if its a broken line.

A/c -heat only comes out the defrost opening no matter what position the vent selector is in -should i change the heater control switch

No the switch is probably ok. The problem is most likely the door actuator motor. It is a small electric motor that opens and close the the correct door to direct the air in the ac/heating ducts. These motors take place of the old cables that did the same job.

Continuous heat coming from vents

You need to have the temperature valve actuator replaced. It's a dealer only part on top of a huge labor fee (about 600). I've been just opening my windows in the winter when it gets too hot... but with spring/summer coming I will have to have it rigged to constantly blowing cool air (and bring a sweater!). Good luck.

This is Common. The Compressor will run even on Heat settings. It is simply Priming for actions that the Owner could Initiate. Not a big Problem.
