    Is the fan/blower only working on high speed? If you turn on the heat at low fan speed can you feel the warm air at the vent, but no blow? If this is the case it could just be your fan speed regulator.

More then likely you have a bad blower motor resistor, this is a part that has three springs in it and a four wire harnness going to it, one spring very thick for high speed, one a little thinner for middle speed, one very thin for low speed, sit under the dash passenger side. This repair should be under $100.00 at a repair shop and do it your self under $40.00. Good luck, hope this was very helpful.

Air/heat blower is not working unless it is on high.

The heater resistor is probably faulty, its located near the blower fan

Just flushed system installed new thermostat still no heat and still saying low coolant. no leaks anywhere also starting to miss when driving.

These can be a pain to bleed the air out of so, turn the heat on full blast, start the car and wait till it gets to operating temp.. Slowly and carefully remove the resevoir cap and fill the resevoir as needed till you get heat out of the vents. If you are able to fill the system and still no heat, flushing the system with a chemical flush is going to be necessary. This stuff can be purchased at any autoparts store for around $10 and just follow the instructions. These do work and work very well. Let me know if you need anything else.

Air condition

Your blower motor resistor needs to be replaced. when they go bad, for some reason the fan will only work on high. Replace that resistor and you will be good to go. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

Overheating in 2002 sedona

To check if it is the thermostat run the car and when the temp starts going up turn the heat on full blast in the car. If the temp goes down after you turn the heat on than it is your thermostat.

A/C is on and rear heater blows full blast from vent on the sliding doors

I had the same problem and the gear box that opens and closes the valve for the water flow through the heater core was stripped. I had it replaced because it is a bear to get to. Hope this helps.
