It sound's like one of two thing's, first open the glove compartment look behind to the left you will see a clear vacuum line going to a goldish in color accuator remove it once the vehicle is at normal operating temp. if you get heat then you have a problem with the vacuum switch, just plug the vacuum hose, you will have to reconnect it in the summer to get the AC working. The other problem could be the heater control valve, located under the hood inline on the hoses going to the heater core, upper passenger side of the fire wall.

Are both hoses to the core hot, if not flush the core with a garden hose. Both problems could be a bad thermostat, but you said you replaced it, so the gauge problem might be a temp sensor.

No heat in a 1996 towncar


after checking coolant level,thermostat operation and if heater hoses feel hot(be careful not to burn your hand) the temperature blend door is probably at fault. It directs the air from the fan blower motor either across your heater core or A/C evaporator, giving you either hot or cold air. Most cases the dash has to come out to replace this $80 electronic motor. Good luck, Mr.P

It is possible that you may have an air lock in the system. You need to drain the rad and remove the upper most heater hose from the heater core and raise the hose up high . Fill the rad until coolant comes out of the heater core pipe. Carefully reattach the heater hose. Fill the rad slowly allowing trapped air to escape.This may take a while. Once the rad is full put a catch basin on the floor under the rad filler neck.Start the car and let it run to operating temperature.Allow the expanding coolant fall into the basin.Once you see circulation in the rad you can slowly top the rad off.once you do this replace the rad cap and fill the reservoir bottle 3/4 ways to the top. Shut the car off and let it cool off filling the bottle as necessary.Hopefully this will cure your problem. Good luck :-)
