Hi All,

My heater in my 1998 Fairlane is not working. I turn the temp up high and switch air con. off. I have had the heater tap replaced, now my mechanic suspects a fault in one of the vacuum lines that allows the heater tap to go from hot to cold. Is there a link on this website that can help me fix my heater? Its almost winter in Melbourne as we all know.

vacuum hose on heater tap looks ok - could it be the blender flap is stuck or an internal leak in the dash?

The vacuum line to the heater tap is only to close the tap, not open it. The tap is normally open without vacuum.

Try this doc

http://www.fordmods.com/phpBB2/documents.php?doc=9

Run diagnostics on CC and see if any error codes are present.

The blend door is driven by a electric motor and are known to fail. Around $200 to buy, then the dash has to come out to replace it.

Other thing to check are;
Heater tap, is it fully opening
Heater core may need flushing out
Is the engine at normal operating temp (low temp thermostat)

I have got the problem fixed - sort of
the bottom line is that there is heat.
my local Ford mechanic said the solenoid in the dash for the c/c system is not functioning properly. Some of the flaps are playing up - would cost around $700 to fix - im happy there is heat now
