Hi gang, I've recently adopted a 90 Accord. Did all the engine work, runs great, but the heater is always supplying heat. Fan can be shut off, but it appears there's no control through the temperature control dial-thing. Car WAS equipped with A/C but hasn't been charged for years. Temperature control seems to be the problem because I can't feel much resistance when I turn the control from cold to hot--does anyone have an idea on how to fix? Thanks in advance!

you need to have the check engine light repaired first most likely related to heat and or gas issue and a check engine light is not a 1 issue thing code will need to be pulled if you have a autozone they can pull it for free and theres where we need to start .could be anything from o2 sensor to a thermostat ect...
More likely it's yr heating pipes let water escape so check these thoroughly. Could be head gasket leaking into engine so chk that immed for any sign of water on the oil stick. Otherwise flush the engine water thru for an oily blockage. Always use coolant. cheers
Turns out the radiator was leaking, so the coolant kept running out causing the temp light to go on. as a temporary fix, you can keep topping up the coolant, but otherwise you are going to need to get that radiator fixed. by the way, audi 90s have TWO radiators; in my case it was the smaller radiator that had gone.
new radiator later, and it was fixed. unfortunatley, my temp gauge has never work...
