The problem is caused by a failure of the electric temperature control blend door motor, to replace this part the dash must be removed.

There is a vacuum operated actuator that is in the venting system When you switch your control knob, a vaccum pressure is applied to this actuator. Then the actuator moves a flap that controls the warm air/cold air flow. The flap can get stuck, or the actuator can become leaky or weak

Heater


Your heater control valve is faulty, these are a common fault and are mounted on the bulkhead with 2 rubber hoses and a 2 wire plug in the side. They are commonly found on ford ka and ford fiesta. A copy part can be bought from eBay for £30. Not much point in buying one 2nd hand as they commonly fail. Hope this is of help.

Doesnt blow warm enough air new heatercore and blower fan. air flow seems restricted


Hi
if the car is not overheating then this is a heater control vale fault, very common on this car cost new is about £35 in the UK this part has another name which I cannot seem to remember at the moment but here a link to what one looks like, http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Ford-Fiesta-KA-Puma-transit-NEW-HEATER-CONTROL-VALVE_W0QQitemZ160372185586QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item2556ed59f2

This one is for a fiesta not taurus, but they do the same job. the part is located just in front of the window screen below the wiper arms has 2 pipes going in, one hot one cold, if both are cold then that the fault.

Regards

My heater in my Ford KA 1999 has stopped blowing hot air and now only blows cold air. A friend has suggested it might be a fuse, just wondering if anyone knows where the fuse box is or any other...


Fuse box is behind a panel under the dashboard on the steering wheel side. Heater solenoid is #12 I believe.
A cold heater is most likely a bad solenoid valve. This pulses off and on to give the required water flow into the heater matrix. It seems a common fault that this solenoid fails or the valve itself gets blocked. Ford parts are expensive (£50?) and scrap yards don't seem to have them. A competent DIY'er can do the job in about an hour if they have the replacement part. Requires taking off the cover between bonnet and windscreen and grovelling down behind the bulkhead (apparently). I know all this 'cos I need to do the same - my daughter's Ka has the same problem!

Ford ka heater problem


Sounds like you need the heater core flushed or a new thermostat.Sounds like you needed the valve replaced but have since developed a new problem.

start car.turn on air conditioner high cool .raise hood look to see if the compressor clutch is engaged and running.if yes your ac air door could be stuck closed or the air door vacuum actutator not receiving vacuum.a vacuum line is broken or off. or the control switch bad.that control the AC and heater mode. if compressor clutch is not engagged.check for power at compressor clutch.if yes compressor clutch coil open. or the air conditioner refrigerant R 134 is low take car to a private garage with a good reputation. they wont be expensive as the dealership.have them hook car air conditioner to a manifold gauge set to check your refrigerant low side and high side pressure.

Ford ka heater blows hot air all the time


Taurus does not use a heater control valve. It runs coolant thru the heater core constantly. You may have a temp blend door actuator problem or a plugged up heater core is also very common. Feel the heater hoses, they should both be very hot, it one is much cooler; you can try to back flush the core.
