Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
My 06 jetta did the thing. I fixed it by replacing the outside temp sensor. Turns out the air only works if temps are over 45 degrees. My outside temp sensor had gone bad. sensor was around $11.00 and I had to re-wwire it in because the original one had corroded. air has been working great sense.

Pick up a recharge kit at an auto parts store. It comes with a gauge and several cans of R134A refrigerant, and has detailed instructions on how to recharge the system. The recharge kits cost about $35 or so, which is far cheaper than a garage will charge you to do the job, and it's very easy to do in the driveway.

It appears we have an Air lock scenario and you will need to perform a system Bleed.
Park the vehicle on level ground, when cold remove coolant filler cap, start engine and leave to idle, turn heater on full and blower to max. When engine reaches operating temperature watch and listen near coolant filler, keep clear as gurgling and hopefully a boil over should occur. Top up with very warm coolant and wait as it may do it again.
Check for heat inside vehicle if warm replace coolant cap but keep an eye on temperature gauge as the ~Air lock may have moved on from heater matrix/core so proceedure needs to be carried out again from COLD.

On most cars when you push a button or slide a lever to change your choice of location where you want the air to blow out louvers move inside the dash to redirect the air to your chosen location. When you switch from heat to AC other louvers move. These louvers are often powered by vacuum lines running from the engine. If one of these louvers is stuck or if you have a vacuum leak in one of the lines it may be causing your problem.

your a/c compressor is not working.
you have to have the system checked by an air conditioning place or the dealer as to what the cause is.

heater core is going bad my dodge ram truck did the same thing for about three months then steam startedcoming out of the vents it was antifreeze i have not fixed it yet i just bypassed it for now cause its hot and i have to take the dash completly out to get to it, and yes my airconditioner was blowing out hot now immediatly after i bypassed it blows cold again.you have to find where it goes into the motor on both sides so follow the hoses from firewall then buy a 3ft hose to go from one side of motor to the other problem fixed! well that is you wont have a heater until you change the heater core

If it blew cold air after freon added and 5 days later blew warm, you may have a leak in the system. Also check and see if compressor comes on if not you may have an electrical issue, relay for compressor,coil on compressor, etc.......
