    First make sure your coolant is full, then is your engine reaching normal operating temperature ( 180-200deg). Then check to see if the heater hoses are hot to the touch on both hoses. If that is all good then we move inside the car.

    The temperature is up. What is inside to explore?

    That's when we check your controls. But first we need to make sure the heater core is getting hot so we know it could be the controls. If the heater core is not heated by the coolant then it doesn't matter about the controls, we assume they are working until proof tells us otherwise.
