I have a 1995 Ford Taurus. The heater does not work.


I have had the heater core

I have had the heater core checked and it's fine. The fan works but only blows cold air. How do I fix this condition?

Try the blend door actuator

Try the blend door actuator (BDA) 1. Check Red/White (R/W) wire of the BDA connection for a reading of 9-10 volts with the ignition key on when the BDA is connected. 2. If there is no output voltage on the R/W wire, replace the BDA. 3. If voltage is present on the R/W wire, check the Red/Light Green (R/LG) wire to verify it is showing to be a ground for the temperature control switch. 4. If the R/W wire and the R/LG wire check to be ok, check the Yellow/Light Green (Y/LG) wire of the connection for a changing voltage reading as the temperature control switch on the dash is moved from cold to hot and back to cold. The voltage should vary from a reading of about 1 volt up to about 9 volts. 5. If the Y/LG wire's voltage does not vary with the position of the control switch, check the circuits to verify they are good between the control switch and the BDA before replacing the temperature control switch. Loosen dash so it can be pulled out and lifted up enough to gain access to BDA, usually about 6" in each direction is enough.Loosen dash so it can be pulled out and lifted up enough to gain access to BDA, usually about 6" in each direction is enough.
