SOURCE: ford ka heater blows hot air all the time

Taurus does not use a heater control valve. It runs coolant thru the heater core constantly. You may have a temp blend door actuator problem or a plugged up heater core is also very common. Feel the heater hoses, they should both be very hot, it one is much cooler; you can try to back flush the core.

SOURCE: heater blowing hot even after changing bulkhead valve no air-con

Theres a door under the dash that directs air over the heater core if it is broken then you will not get heat but you will still have a/c.To fix it you will have to take dash apart.
please rate my answer if satisfied

SOURCE: ford ka 2005 heater fault

There is a vacuum operated actuator that is in the venting system When you switch your control knob, a vaccum pressure is applied to this actuator. Then the actuator moves a flap that controls the warm air/cold air flow. The flap can get stuck, or the actuator can become leaky or weak

SOURCE: heater on ford ka 2002 only blows cold

Unlikely to be a fuse, as the blower motor is working.
Check coolant flow to the heater is OK. The coolant on/off tap may not be operating correctly.
If all above checks ok, check heater core or connecting hose is not blocked.

Fan switch location


some models do not have a temperature control switch as it is pre-set in the thermostat to very cold It works to switch off the compressor when the cabin temperature setting is reached.. If it is too cold then the regulation is by the heater control . If it is hot all the time have an accredited ac shop check it for leaks and re-gas the system

Heater


Your heater control valve is faulty, these are a common fault and are mounted on the bulkhead with 2 rubber hoses and a 2 wire plug in the side. They are commonly found on ford ka and ford fiesta. A copy part can be bought from eBay for £30. Not much point in buying one 2nd hand as they commonly fail. Hope this is of help.
