SOURCE: Heater running at max temp

You need to check the twin solenoid heat control valve found on the RHD side down by the base of the radiator. When these fail they mostly fail in the ''open'' state so hot water is constantly supplied to the heater. Possible causes 1 solenoid valve failed 2 cables and connectors to valve faulty (often suffer from corrosion and damage- inspect carefully) 3 voltage signals to valve from control module missing, the modules can suffer from a blown output transistor or damaged PCB tracks caused by high current shorting - (easily repairable) If its any comfort - I currently have a solenoid failure on one side of my valve so the passenger is roasting whilst I'm okay, good job its winter here ! I have checked all the above and know its a faulty valve so I will have to change it - but its a ***** of a job as there is no room to move !! hope this has helped - good luck !

Does heater have a fuse

Blower and if you have the automatic temp control the door that controls the temp does have a fuse. If the fuse or door control module is burnt out then the output air will remain the same no matter where you set the temp.

I've recently had my A/C recharged but the system still blows hot air. When the A/C is off, the fresh air still blows hot.

make sure the compresser is turning on and off
if not there might be a leak that was missed

Heater blows cold

Does temp gauge on dash show normal temp? If so problem is with the controls. If sytem cycles through normal controls IE, defroster, floor,bi-level and redirects air properly check to make sure door control is functional for heater core. If door is not opening then you will never get hot air

Does the thermostat control the temp of the air blown by the heater?

It controls the engine water temp so if engine temp low it won't blow hot air
Heater water pipe has an inline control valve that controls heater temp either vacuum controlled or by cable to dash control

WHen we use the auto car starter, it blows cold air, and a lot of it. Its nearing the winter here in New England and I need to know how to set up the starter to blow warm air. Any ideas?

Start the vehcle and let it warm up then set all the controls to heater? Then turn off the car. Use the remote start to start the vehicle and check the controls are still set to heat mode.

2001 Suzuki XL-7. Heater blows hot one side, cold the other.

No ductwork [to the lower vents] under the dash. They are part of the heater core / blower housing is integrated (all one piece).

After reviewing shop manual, we suspect that one of the three damper flaps is not positioning correctly; or debris has blocked one side (which makes more sense given the symptoms).

We're waiting for the temperatures to get back in the plus numbers to check out the physical arrangement.

Fully warmed up; blowing hot and cold; Suzuki XL-7

Its just a vent damper plate not operating, it's like a gate which controls the flow of air,,usually they are operated by vacuum, or cables.
Service center time, unless you are handy with your own repairs.
