    This is more likely to be the heater control valve. Easy to replace and only around ten to twenty pounds on ebay etc. Video on youtube gives an idea of replacement. Easy job, about half an hours work

Unlikely to be a fuse, as the blower motor is working.
Check coolant flow to the heater is OK. The coolant on/off tap may not be operating correctly.
If all above checks ok, check heater core or connecting hose is not blocked.

Is there a fuse or relay for the heater in my 2002 ford expedition

No hot air is due to low coolant, or even poor coolant flow. The engine heats up the coolant, and it passed through your heater core, and the heater blower motor pushes air through the heater core to warm up the air. If your "fan"is working, but the air is cold, make sure your coolant level is good.

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!

My ford ka heater is blowing cold air could you tell me how to resolve this

either the blend door in the plenum is not moving to close off the cold air, or you have air trapped in the system or low coolant

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.
