If it has a heater control valve you can easily locate it. You will find it on one of the two hoses going to the heater core. Check to be sure it is opening. Also check to be sure you heater core is not plugged.

My heater in my 2002 dodge dakota quiet working

do you mean you have no heat or no blower motor working.for the heat make sure the cooling system is full .then check the heater hoses to see if they are the same temp with the engine at operating temp.if not then you probably have a plugged heater core that will need replacing or you can try to unplug it by disconnecting the heater hoses and connect spare hoses to the spiggots and pour clr into the heater core and let it sit for 30-60 minutes.flush out and reconnect heater hoses and run to operating temp and long has it been since the thermostat has been changed.if its the blower motor check the fuses.if they are good then try tapping the blower motor to see if it starts to work if so then you will need to replace the blower motor.if not then you will have to check the motor resistor as these go bad often.

No heat in my 97 dakota noticed when motor is warm both of the radiator hoses are cold what is causing this

good day, heater core/coil is leaking antifreeze and needs to be replaced. The heater core works in conjunction with your engine's cooling system. The function of the cooling system is to remove heat from the engine, and it does this for the most part by sending the heated anti-freeze to the radiator located in the front of the car. The position of the radiator allows outside air to blow across the radiator thus cooling the anti-freeze. The anti-freeze is then sent back to the engine. Hot anti-freeze is circulated throughout the cooling system by the radiator and heater hoses. Think of the heater core as a small radiator located inside the dashboard of your vehicle. hope this helps, have a nice day.

1999 dodge dakota blows cold air at idle but heat warms up when revved. would like a solution to this heater problem. I live in alaska and need the heat to function properly. already flushed the heater...

Sounds as if the engine is not building up temp due to cooling system working. If engine temp gage is reading low try covering 1/3 of radiator with a piece of cardboard "Bumper side" to reduce the cooling effect.. just watch temp and out side temps if warming up outside or heavy driving remove the blocking to allow full cooling

Just replaced thermostat and still no heat and temp gauge doesn't work

Warm up the truck touch both heater hoses about midway in the hose . If one is hot the other cold you have no waterflow through the heater core. check the heater control valve it will be a valve in one of the heater hoses. usually cable or vacuum operated. make sure that valve is opening. if not, manually open it may be necessary to tie open to see if you have heat and if you get heat. If you do get heat determine wheather you need a new (control valve or cable or vacuum hoses. If you still have no heat chek the blend air door inside under the dash this is the door that changes the airflow direction from AC to heat it may not be working properly. Hope this helps.

The control valve could be damaged or you could have a blockage in the heater core. Locate the valve in the engine compartment and watch it while someone inside the truck moves the heater lever back and forth. You want to verify that the valve is moving to open and close the pipe into the heater core. If that checks out ok, try to flush the heater core.
