Sounds like the hot cold valve has stuck its behind the wiper panel having 2 pipes in and 2 out and a 12v plug on it check the voltage too this too should be 12v when hot is selected on the heater control panel also carfully feel the pipes if one is really hot and one cold the valve has stuck closed there about £5 from a car breakers not that difficult to change with minimal tools or pay a garage anything from £90 too £150 for the repair.

No heat in heater when idiling when reviv motor up has a little heat and heats up when ideling in traffic


Sounds like you may have combustion gasses creating an air lock in the cooling system. Or plugged heater core / radiator. Definitely a circulation problem of some kind either flow of hot antifreeze is restricted or the heater should blow very hot air especially when the car heats up so long as all the ducting and heater controls are functioning properly. If the vehicle has been overheated you more than likely have combustion gasses in the cooling system. Water pump will not work properly for combustion gasses that mix with coolant. Check to see if the coolant is beginning to get a little oily and dirty, this will indicate combustion gasses entering cooling system.

Hi the heater on my Ford KA is only blowing out cold air even when turned to hot on the control knob. I recently had problems with it blowing out only hot air all the time and had a new solanoid fitted but...


Sounds like whoever did the repair work did not install the solenoid correctly or did not reassemble everything properly. If you had heat prior to the repair, the heater control panel must have been working. The mechanic must make a better diagnosis than this.

May be your heater/AC control unit in the dash if you have already replaced the mixing valve for the heater.Must be a problem. I just responded to the same issue for a 2004 Focus.

Heater blowing hot even after changing bulkhead valve no air-con


Theres a door under the dash that directs air over the heater core if it is broken then you will not get heat but you will still have a/c.To fix it you will have to take dash apart.

My Ford Ka smells like its overheating


check your water in the radiator bottle, normally that kind of smell is caused by low water level

No heat,ch.thermostat,water is circulating,blower goin strong .


Check the 'heater control valve'. This valve opens when u turn on the heat switch on the dash, so the hot coolant will flow thru the heater core and provide heat. So although the coolant is circulating in the engine, the valve controlling the flow to the heater core is stuck closed, or not working.
