  2. With the control cable attached to the air mix door link, pull the cable housing out and push the inner cable in the opposite direction.
  3. Secure the cable in this position with the retaining clamp.
  4. Operate the temperature control lever and check freedom of movement at full stroke range.

No heater or A/C blower


Did you check fuses located on battery?
Possible causes , fan itself , but it would have nothing to do with overheating.
Fan resistor (final stage controller) , not for overheating either.
And the most common on this cars is radiator fan control module , basicly a few relays in one.
You can check fuses by yourself but for the rest of it probably mechanic shop is preferable.

I have a 2000 Jetta. The heater does not work properly. The fan blows but it never blows out hot air. It takes it so long just to get slightly warm air and some of the vents are colder than others. I...


Sounds like a clogged heater core or a issue with blend but if you have axis to a air compressor you could blow it out and it should be good done it many times.

Started out with cold air coming out the vents


I'm no 'expert' but it sounds like possibly 2 different problems. Your heat comes from warm/hot coolant circulating through the heater core, and the fan blowing air through/over it. If your thermostat is not opening the coolant won't circulate. Thermostat is a not too difficult or costly starting place. No air flow leads me to think you have a blower motor issue, perhaps start with the fuse. Hope this helps.

Heater won't blow hot air


have the heater core flushed. the heater core is a smaller radiator located in the air duct. open your hood, look at the firewall(wall closest to the seats) you should see two hoses a couple inches away from each other going to the radiator. unhook one, from the firewall connection, coolant will flow. then kink the hose so the coolant from the radiator doesnt drain. unhook the other hose from the firewall connection. now you have two pipes protruding from the firewall. get a hose and run it through one side and it'll come out the other. probably a lot of grime. now hook the hoses back up.
it could also be the switch

Heater not working


I would check if your vent to the outside is open. If it is I would check the vacum hose that controls the vent to open and close.

Fully warmed up; blowing hot and cold; Suzuki XL-7


Its just a vent damper plate not operating, it's like a gate which controls the flow of air,,usually they are operated by vacuum, or cables.
Service center time, unless you are handy with your own repairs.

Heater not hot


does the heater core get hot, check the coolant hoses going to the core to see if both are hot, if they are U have a air temperature control blend door problem, most likely the actuator for the door has failed.
