    The heater works great, however, you can't direct the heat ie., defrost, floor, or vent.

    2003 Elantra - heat works intermittently, same with AC. There is a sound like a vent opening or closing when car is stopped at a light. Also now notice burning type smell from back of car when heat is on.

There is a switch down on the floor by where the gas pedal is. Reset that switch, until the problem fixes itself. If it does not fix itself that way, you can follow the wire up to the vent controller. This will involve you taking off the cover panel in the middle of your dashboard. There only a few screws and it's really easy to remove. You will also have to remove the panel from where your shifter is. Place the E-brake on then pull the shifter down as far as it will go to get the panel out far enough to see behind it. Now you can see if the wires became disconnected from the vent controller. This all works, as I had the same problem. Just make sure when putting the panels back together that you do not pinch wires. I did this and it caused me to have no dash lights, and I had to do it all over again! Hope this helps.

Heater door does not go between vents

It depends on what type of vehicle you have. Some vehicle have electric air distribution, if this is your case, you may have an electric duct motor not working due to burned motor or not receiving electricity from the control bottom. If your car doesn't have an electric air distribution system, you have a loose cable behind the dashboard.

The heater/air conditioner fan diverter on my 2003 Elantra doesn't work. It only blows air from the bottom, not the A/C vents or the defroster. Advice?

Either the "MODE" control cable has come loose from the actuator pivot connection, or the MODE door inside the air box is broken.

NO. These models do not have warnings on the transmission failure. There is warnings only when the transmission encounters electrical component failure, overheating(some cars), low fluid. Usually the warning is the O/D flashing light, or a seperate transmission light. Hopefully this helps

2000 hyundai elantra inside room heat

Almost every car(including yours) has a flow through ventilation system which means even with the air turned off air will still come through the vents. Its hot because of outside temp and engine temp. 
Basically just push the recirculation button and it will stop.
