I'm not sure if that car has one, but if it did, it would be in one or the other heater hoses from the engine to the firewall. It could be low of coolant, or a bad blend/temp door actuator as well.

Are you sure it's a 99, doesn't show a 2.3L since '92. Then it should be a cable going to the top of the heater box.

you should be able to see it from under the dash but it easier if you take the glove box out
