You may have a plugged heater core .. feel both hoses going to the heater core .. if they are not "hot" .. that is the problem.

1999 VW Passat heat not working


Could be your thermostat... If defective, it will not allow the engine to heat up. Take the coolant cap off before you start the car when it is cooled off. start the engine and let it idle, look at the coolant. The coolant should not be flowing or moving right when you start the engine, if it is, the thermostat is bad. If you dont have enough coolant and you see it is low, this may also cause the heater to stop working. Someone may have by-passed your heater coil, check that. Sometimes when a heater coil leaks, people will by pass it so that they can continue to use the car or they cant afford to change it. It should be located on the passenger side under the dash or on the firewall inside the engine compartment on the passenger side. Another thing could be your climate control which is a fancy name for the heater controls on your dash, sometimes the switches become defective and will not operate the heater.

You hot air comes from the water circulated through the heater core. It is like a miniture radiator with water flowing thru it constantly. So by opening the "Blend Door" you are permitting so much of this hot air to pass thru.

Seems like for some reason your heater core is plugged up. Just like a radiator can be. So water may be passing through your heater core but not passing through fully. Your heater core gets hot from water passing throught it from the engine. Then your doors open up, in proportion to how much air is permitted to pass over the heater core.

Suggest to remove the heater core and replace it. Seems the blend doors are working properly but again, if you have a non working heater core then no air can pass over the "Hot Core" for you to recieve hot air.

If you are not mechanically inclined, then go to a local parts store and you can buy a car manual, such as Chilton's or Hane's Car manuals, for your year and make to show you how to replace it. Then you can also have it for any other problems that may arise.

The heater does not blow hot air just cold air all vent controls work.if running air conditioning can control temp with the hot cold control


The first thing to check is the coolant (antifreeze) level in your radiator. If this level is too low it could cause your heater not to blow hot air. Check this when the engine is cold by removing the radiator cap. Do not remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. If you do, you run the risk of getting scalded by hot water and steam that can shoot out the top of the radiator. The radiator should be completely full. If it's not, fill it up with a 50/50 solution of antifreeze and water. Also make sure the radiator overflow tank is filled up to the full mark. This is usually about halfway up the tank.
If your coolant level is ok I suspect you may need to replace the thermostat. It may be sticking shut and not letting hot water get to your heater core, or it may be sticking open and preventing your engine from reaching its normal hot operating temperature. A thermostat is relatively inexpensive and usually easy to replace. Just make sure you follow the instructions and put it in facing the right direction. If the thermostat is ok then you may have a blockage in your heater core. Replacing a heater core can be a difficult job on some car. If this is your problem I recommend taking the car into a garage to have the repair done. I hope this helps you out.
