Blow nothing but cold air. temp.guage in car shows heating up, replaced themostat, filled up radiator. let run ,air still ice cold
i had the same problem, i got a can of that electrical parts cleaner, for wires and stuff. i cleaned every fuse and the fuse box under the hood. i could not figure out which one may be for the ac so i cleaned them all. i let the car sit a little while so the cleaner fumes could go away then started it up and turned on the ac. works fine now.
no heat while idle or cruising. Could be disconnected or bad electric servo that controls vacuum to heater control valve (reroute manifold vacuum line past servo directly into top of control valve, "in the donut hole") or it could be low coolant that is not circulating in heater core. There is also a diverter valve in the plenum that swings from cool to heat, that may have a bad motor. First check is easiest: Check coolant level in morning, cold. Then reroute vacuum line, takes about 20 seconds once you find it. If it heats with constant vacuum then the little plastic switch valve is bad, $$$ for some reason.
