    My heater is not working just blowes cold when you put it on heat. What are some of the things to check for I have noticed that when you turn it to cold it does not go all the way on cold about half way could it be a cable issue. or mabe something else

    thanks for any help

    Check where your wires go for the heat and ac I know in gmc vans if you kick by the passenger seat you can kick the wire connector Lois and it wont work ... you might just have a loose wire ... hope this helps

    got the dash off and found the problem it the small plastic holder that holds the cable was broke my quick fix was to drill a small hole in the glove box and run the cable through that now if I want heat just open the glove box and push the cable in for heat or pull it out for cold air didn't cost me a dime.:D:D:D
