Sounds like the control is done. It's easily replaced, you can get a new or used one, up to you. If you need instructions on replacement just drop me a line.

the control that opens the valve to let hot coolant to run through the heater core is stuck-the cables that move it are springing back and moving the knob back-find the valve under the hood close to the firewall on the passenger side-spray it with wd-40 and work it back and forth-or you may just want to replace it-cheers Denny

I would first remove the fuse for the heater control head for one minute and then put in and retry.
The control head could have locked up on you with a volt spike. The rear defrost switch does not go through the same circuit in the heat as the hvac controls. Could be a broken know also.
Could also be mechanical linkage on side of heater box above accelerator pedal may have broken or popped apart. or if electrical motor control may be actuator.

I have a 2002 taursus I have replaced the thermostat but still do not have HOT heat it is lukewarm. We disconnected the plug to the air conditioner because we noticed the line was cold as if was engaged....


Make sure the heater hoses are HOT. If they are not real hot then the heater core can be clogged. At that point you can remove both hoses where they go into the firewall and blow compressed air through them or a high pressure water hose until it flows freely. It can also be whats called the blend door actuator. This is an electric motor under the dash that closes a door depending on weather you want heat or a/c. We have seen many times when something has fallen down in the defrost vents and is stuck in the blend door keeping it open partially which would cause a poor heat condition (pens,pencils,etc...) Lastly, if this is a manual a/c system meaning it has a knob for hot to cold-pull the knob off and using needle nose pliars turn the shaft sticking out of the head unit in the direction that would be heat. These knobs are known to round off and lead you to think it is turned all the way, but it's not due to the bad knob. I am confident that one of these is you problem because there just isn't too many components to the heater system and this is what we see on a daily basis. Hope it helps!
