Im having probs Vauxhall astra 1.6 11 plate cooling fan on all the time

the fan power is controlled at the last point by a relay
that relay gets the signal from the ECM which relies on the coolant temperature sensor to report on coolant temperature and the need to cool it down
If there is a problem in that relay ( points burnt together then the fan will run continuously as the power is direct from the battery
first fix is too replace that relay with a known good one and if it still runs then you will have to trace back each component and fuse until you find the faulty unit
It could possibly be a faulty coolant SENSOR ( don't confuse with a coolant sender which works the gauge)

Vauxhall astra 1.7 td heater not getting hot

Assuming the fan works ok, it sounds like the cable from hand control to heater valve has come off or needs adjusting or replacing. Or (less likely) there is a problem with the mechanical valve. The valve needs to open to allow hot water to flow through to the mini radiator (heater radiator) and then both coolant pipes and mini radiator get hot with a warm engine. Try moving the valve lever by hand (somewhere above the clutch pedal).and If you start getting heat with the fan on the fault is the cable..
