I have the same problem with my 96 Ram and according to the Chilton repair book there is a heater control valve but I'm still trying to find it. It doesn't appear to be under the hood but the directions to replace it are very basic, drain radiator below valve, remove water hoses and vacuum lines but no picture of where it is. I've slowly lost heat so I'm "assuming" a loose vacuum line, if I could find it.
