In my case was the Temperature Blend Door Actuator (electric motor inside is weak) this is very usual in Ford Ranger 2008. For all models part Number 19E616 AA.
1. Open the Gloves Box all the way down (is very simple, you will see it).
2. A white little box in front of you with a electric connector. That is the part to replace (see pic below).
3. Only 3 screws 5/16" and the electric connector (with a clip) The access is bad to the back screw, but I did it in like 2 hrs. Ford Dealer is going to charge you 6.3 hrs. because they remove the air bag.


Use a Combination Wrench (small) and a Roto Ratchet (small) this is all you need and lots of patience. You will get tired just rest and try little later.


Good luck.

SOURCE: 2008 Impala heat problems

The heat of the engine heats the car. If the engine is cold, cold air should come out. If its warm, warm air shoult come out!

SOURCE: 2008 Chevy Uplander has 21,000 miles. Nno heat

Uplanders with the 3.9 engine are prone to no heat at idle speeds. Probably weeping head gasket. Air bubble trapped. Dealers will remove rad cap and let it sit at about 25 deg. angle for a couple hours. Good for awhile.

SOURCE: 2008 Ford Ranger heater blows hot air regardless

Sorry i don't see the problem, You say your heater motor is blowing hot air, Do you mean while the a/c is on? If so i would say your you may need your a/c charged up. But no the thermostate does not have a fuse, It is eather open or closed. Good luck .

SOURCE: heater does not blow hot air, just cool air

You can put a higher temp thermostat and that should help, but it should at least have 170 degree air right now if it was working right. There are two other things you might check for, the diverter door make some sound when you switch from heat to cool and back, I can't tell you for sure if it is a manual, vacumn or electric but that would definitely cause it to blow cold air. There is also a valve which cuts off circulation to the heater core when your not using it. This valve will be in line with the heater hoses going to your heater core. I have seen some that were actually part of the heater core box. I feel pretty sure one of these will be your problem. Also if your car is low on coolant it would not heat properly. Hope this can help you!

2008 Ford Ranger heater blows cold air regardless of thermostat position.


Several things can cause a no heat condition. Try this - After the engine is warmed up turn on the heater and place you hand on the two heater hoses (CAUTION THEY WILL BE HOT)- if one is hotter than the other you may have a clogged heater core. The problem could also be as simple as the heat door not opening under the dash.

The fan works, air conditioning works, but the air wont heat up(knob turns to hot on thermostat). is it a vacuum hose problem, and how do we get to it?


The most common cause of this in the Ranger and the Explorer is that a part called the air temeperature control blend door acuator or the blend door shaft that the electric actuator moves has broken, this door is what shuttles between the heater core and the AC core and provides either heated or cooled air, or a blend of the two hot and cold air streams.

Heater blows cold air. I have replaced thermostat,


Not an expert by any means, but i know my ranger.. I had a small leak at the top of my radiator that still cooled the engine but didnt have enough pressure to get to the heater. The heater hoses travel up over the engine and just were not gettin anything to my heater core. That or make sure the heater control valve is operating.

Heater in truck blows either cold air or no air.


It sounds like you have air trapped in the cooling system. Try filling the radiator and coolant reservoir cold. Then leave the radiator cap loose and run engine at 1500 rpm until it warms up and the thermostat opens. Make sure heater is on full warm setting.
