Sounds like the heater control actuator/door isn't opening. Should be under the dash middle to passengers side... on the heater box. The temp switch on the dash causes the actuator to open and close the baffle/door. It may have an arm thet moves the door or it might be that the actuator itself mounts to the heater box. With vehicle running, turn the temp control and watch to see if the actuator is moving. One actuator will move to position the defrost/mix/vent/floor... usually on the drivers side middle... the other should open the heater blend door. Usually hard to get to on most vehicles. Hope this helps, Mike

Front heater does not blow hot air, rear heater works good.

you have an accuator (ac-shu-ateor) that controls the heat and cold air going through that dash, Mine went bad too.. easy fix and cheap too! if you take out the "ashtray" piece if the daash youll see it back in the underside if the dash... it even has a hole that you can force to move from hot to cold with a screwdriver... been there dont that~!

all you have to do is remove the three small bolt scres and unplug it

Seat warmers on drivers side have gone out. How do you fix or replace?

depending on if it is the seat bottom or the seat back as they are seperate systems if both dont work then you probably have a electrical problem with the module or the switch not the heaters them selves, if it is one of the heaters then you must remove the seat cushion and replace it or the seat back cushion the heaters are intergrated into the foam the seat cushion unbolts with two fifteen millimeter nuts just under the front of the seat and unclips from the rear as you pull up and forward the seat back cushion is much more involved and should be done by a pro

Hey, radiator fluid is leaking from the back left of my navigator

What happen is there is a return and a supply to your heater core, but there are two heater cores a front and a back if you look underneath the truck you will see lines going to a core out back. I dont believe there are relief opening back there, but maybe a drain. most likely the lines going to it need to be replaced. good luck

Front heater blower low speeds dont work

if you have just high speed, you need to change resister, usually in plenum case to keep it cool. If it goes again, change motor, it is drawing too much current

Heater doesn't blow air? my front windows roll down but my back windows dont. their electric.1988 mercedez 190

Blower is used for either AC or Heater demand. If it doesn't work in heater mode, but work in AC mode then it is a problem with the Climate Control. If it doesn't work in both cases, then check the fuse near the front fender on driver side ( It is not in the fuse box). If the fuse is good, then it is not necessary the blower is burnt, but the blower regulator is burnt. The Blower regulator is underneath of the blower. It can be accessed from the engine side under the wiper motor.
