maybe the wire is severed where the door (drver dr) pivots. thats what was wrong with mine. there is a rubber boot with crinkles in it that hold all the wires together. you can also try replacing the switch board that controls the wndws on the drvr dr. hope that helps.

Without knowing your car specifically I can suggest the generic way to do it. Locate the two heater hoses going into the firewall, probably on the passenger side. They're the ones that get hot and are about an inch + in diameter. Disconnect. Measure the inside diameter of the hose and purchase a short piece of galvanized or copper pipe (6 inches) at Home Depot. Connect both ends of the hoses to the pipe to form a loop. Secure the hoses so they don't land some place that would cause a problem.
I had this problem on an 85 Tbird. I had heard about a product called Bars Leak and tried it. It worked. No leaks and I kept my heater. You should be able to find it at any parts place at less than $10. Ground black pepper also has worked for me.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for your advice and time!"
First off, you want to drain the coolant until it is at a level below the heater core. Then you want to remove your glovebox screws and the entire assembly. It may be necessary to remove the far right passenger side kneepad retaining bolt/nut.Disconnect all vacuum and electricle connections.It's a very good idea to take some digital pix during the process to assure proper reassembly.Remove both heater hoses keeping track of which went where. Back inside look around for all the housing bolts for the heater/ airflow control box.If you have AC it is not necessary to discharge the system.Remove all the housing bolts(some may be attached from the outside. I cannot, from here explain the location of each bolt, you'll have to keep looking until you find them all.I did neglect to mention to remove any cable driven door connectors also, if it is so equipt. Put an old towel on the floor of the vehicle because there is inevitably going to be a spill of coolant. When the housing is completely free "roll" it out from under the dash as far as posible and you'll see the heater core opening cover. It will have the two hose tubes sticking out, you couldn't miss it if you closed your eyes...lol Remove the 5-6 screws and slide the core upwards. You'll know how to reassemble the unit by using your pix as a reference. Good luck my friend, I hope this was as helpful as needed. Dana
