My heater only blows heat at the windshield and feet 1993 isuzu trooper. I added a picture to show what the controls look like. The switch to move where the air goes just clicks as if skipping teeth.

1000 points like the first ever here posting a photo.
shock, !
the heater (HVAC) controls for mode are failing
those are called dampers,
old car 93, they all have issues like this.
answering for USA cars only....
this car has good old cables x3
no vacuum bs. no computers. or damper motors$$$$
its just a cable and the FSM book calls that cable
so when you move the knob below the bell crank in photo 2 move
via the cable does it? if not cable is bad.
if yes, then does it go to the right location that bell crank below.
i used the red letter "S" for stuck
and arrow and X for vent mode..
in vent mode the bell crank turns, fully Clockwise
and lands on damper vent mode,
get vent and DEF working and all else (mode wise) works.

Ac only comes out of defrost and floor vent, not dash

The ducts have dampers that work off of a vacuum and control the flow of air to the different air vents at the top, bottom and face of the dash. Sometimes the vacuum lines come loose or break. You'll need to look under the dash to see if any of these conditions exist.

Fan blowing warm air only, and only through the defrost vents

Had the problem been solved after you replaced the damper door switch and had the gas checked in the ac system??

Cant get enough airflow to defrost windshield fans blowing max

Either the damper door is not redirecting air flow OR your air duct clogged with debris. If you get great air volume thru all the other vents I would believe the problem is with your damper not functioning properly.

I have a 1999 VW Passat. No heat blows from the floor vents or the rear passenger vent. The heat from the dash blows strong and hot with no problem. What could be the problem and could i make the repair...

These vehicles where prone to heater core failure. It lives in center of dash against the fire wall.

When this repair is done at the dealership, the tech is paid only 6 hours. The job takes 10 to 12 hours.

So, what does he do?.....he doesn't put everything he took out back again, which on this job would be the ducts that are along side the 'transmission tunnel' to the rear vent.

Ergo = No rear heat .

On the other hand, it could be the system is stuck in Default..'Windscreen vent priority'.

2000 S-10 no heat from the heater

there is a cable linking the controls on your dash with the damper under your dash on the passeanger side, u may be able to trace it visually to the damper to check its operation, when u found the lever it connects to, try to operate it from there and recheck. The temp. of the air coming out of your vent is influenced by your coolant temp, so check that you are getting to proper coolant temp. and verify that the heater hoses going into the firewall in the engine compartment are both hot when u have the heat on, engine running to check for proper circulation through your heater core.
