Check that the control module is actually turning on the heater control to allow coolant to flow through the heater core. Check that you do not have an air lock into the heater.

SOURCE: 2000 s-10 the blower works but no heat comes out the vent. where do i start?

First thing to check is the coolant level. The heater is the lowest priority of the cooling system so if there isn't enough coolant, none will flow through the heater core. If the radiator is full, the next thing to check is coolant flow through the heater core. The easiest way is simply by "feel" and here's how: Open the hood and identify the heater hoses by locating the two smaller coolant hoses that attach to ports at the fire wall. Once you identify them, start the engine and allow it to warm up to normal operating temperature. (195 to 200 degrees F or just under 100 degrees C) Now turn off the engine and feel the two hoses one at a time as close to the fire wall as possible. If one is warm or hot and the other is cool or cold then there is an obstruction in the heater core. If there is an obstruction in the heater core, you can usually back-flush it and clear it out. To back flush it you have to identify coolant flow direction, if you have identified a cold hose with the previous test, then that's the coolant outlet of the heater core, to back-flush, you would force water into the outlet, and watch for the obstruction to be blown-out of the inlet. Usually garden hose pressure is sufficient, but don't apply more force than the pressure maximum specified on the radiator cap! (Usually 15-17 PSI) You can burst a heater core with too much pressure, then you'll enjoy all the fun of removing the entire dash panel from your vehicle so that you can access the heater core case. If it is totally clogged up there may be no hope of clearing the obstruction, and replacement will become necessary.(which makes dash panel removal necessary too!) If the heater core is not obstructed and both hoses are the same temperature, the climate control system is not directing airflow through the heater core. The air diverter door may be cable or servo-electrically operated. Again access to the heater case may become necessary to service the air diverter doors. ( I wouldn't recommed anyone other than a skilled professional for dash panel removal and replacement because there are a lot of nuts, bolts, screws wiring connectors, vaccum hoses and possibly cables to deal with, not to mention engine coolant and air conditioner refrigerant in cars with A/C! ) Good Luck!

The blower motor resistor is most probably the problem.

SOURCE: Heater Blower won't work

There was a bulletin reguarding water contaminating the blower motor, which overheats the blower resistor and renders it inoperative. The fix was to replace the blower and the resistor and seal the culprit hood cowl screw at the base of the windshield, which is the second screw from the passenger side. They say water drips off of it down into the fresh air opening.
Here's what I'd do: Assuming your switch and blower motor is good, replace the blower resistor. Remove the blower motor and see if it spins without any excessive drag. If it's okay, reuse it. If it's dragging, it will overheat your new resistor in a short period of time and you'll be back at square one. The blower resistor is mounted to the front of the case with 2 screws to the left of the blower motor. Remove the glove box and you'll see it.
The Hood cowl screw is straight down into the cowl, the second one from the right side, about 10-12 inches from the right fender. Pull it out, put some sealer on it, and reinstall it.

check for clogged cabin air filter, located behind the glove box. See owners manual for directions on how to remove the filter.

99 jeep cherokee no heat but blower working

now there are several thing you need to check( since you know the blower and vents are working) start the jeep. let it warm up, sorry to do this to you, but turn on the heater. under the hood are two hoses going to the heater core, by the blower. after the jeep has warmed up, and heater running for about 2 minutes, check to see if either hose got warm or hot. If yes, bad heater core. if no, then the control valve that allows hot coolant to the heater core is bad. you can trace it if you follow the line to the engine, it is connected to a valve, and valve needs to be replaced( you can get it at the auto parts store). hope this helps you

No heat

lets do several things to get to the problem. first, is the blower working for the heater(even though you have no heat), is it blowing air? if no, then check the relays and fuses, and check to make sure the vent by the heater core is opening(under the dash on the passenger side of the car, behind the plastic) if that's not it, check the motor to see if working(you may have to replace it). if yes, the start the car, and let it warm up. now when it's warmed up, turn on the heat, and see if one of the lines going to the blower(2 hoses heading to the black box on the upper passenger side of the engine compartment) are getting hot. if no, then the heater control valve that allows water to flow through those hoses is bad. replace it. if yes, then you need to look at the heater core being plugged and needing to be replaced. that's about the size of it for checking the heating system. hope this helps

Please describe your my blower works in my 1999 windstar but it wont get warm problem

If your not getting any heat out of the vents and the blower motor is working than the first thing to do is check the coolant level. If it is low the first thing to stop working is the heat.

If its full than make sure the engine is coming up to temp. The temp gauge should read around 200 degrees F. when the engine is up to full operating temp.

If the those two are o.k. that make sure you hear a difference in air flow out of the vent when you switch the heat selector from full cold to full hot. If you hear no difference than you may have a blend door or blend door actuator problem.

If all that checks out than the last thing may be a plugged heater core. Especially if the coolant is muddy looking (really common with fords). Back flushing the heater core may help or cure the problem.

My heater is not working in my 2001 honda civic. Is it my thermostat?

Does the heater blow cold air from the vents or do you mean the there is no airflow from the vents? cold air from the dash vents when the heater control valve is set fully hot could be an air pocket in the cooling system. The radiator sits slightly lower than the engine causing air pockets to get trapped in the engine when you replace the coolant. you'll have to purge the cooling system to restore flow to the heater core. No airflow (blower motor inop) this could be a bad blower motor transistor. pin test the blower motor circuit.
