No heat or air in cabin of 1992 honda accord

You may have two problems here. If there's no fresh air coming in then perhaps the vent is closed and the actuator that opens it is stuck, but you should still get heat even if the air control is stuck in recirculate mode. Does the car overheat? Where is the temperature gauge after you've driven for 15 minutes or so? Does it move off "COLD" and stop somewhere in between HOT and COLD? If your car isn't leaking coolant, either inside the cabin or outside, and the temp gauge is more or less halfway between hot and cold, then it sounds like you have a blocked heater core or hose. Even if your fan doesn't work you should get some heat. You might take it to a garage and have them pressure test your cooling system.

Temp control problem - worked mint until pro mechanic changed leaking heater core. Heater controls are now a mess. Pro mech who fixed heater core, is still trying to figure it out. Help me help pro me

there is a few things to check .. the linkage on the side if it's misplaced. look for the temp control motor connector not connected or misplaced and check the vacuum hose to vacuum pack if they are at the right place and when you move the mode switch if vacuum pack work could misplace the vacuum hose

thermostat may be the key, also check to see that both heater hoses are hot , if both are luke warm suspect thermostat, if one is hot and one cold suspect heater core, if both are hot suspect blend door motor......HAVE FUN

Heater does not produce hot air even on high only warm air

My 2002 Audi A4 doesn't produce the hot air, It's an Auto computer control temperature system. I took my car to the local mechanic (gas station), he said that the water pump and the timing belt need to be replaced.

The heating system normally produces by the engine, then normally the "thermostat' is causing the issue, but the temperature gauge doesn't indicate the overheat.

Any idea what's cause this problem?
