Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In order to determine why you are not getting heat you are going to need to do some testing starting with making sure the engine is reaching normal temp. I have enclosed the steps in the link below, copy and paste them to your browser to open and view them.

Hi:The heat works at times and heats beautifully. The problem is that the blower won't come on at times no matter where the temp is set. After fiddling with the switches (Pushing the DEF and BUTTON below it simitlateaously, it often will restart. I had read something about this in one of your blogs and thought you could help me. I think it is the blower motor or control unit? Thoughts?
