Hello, when you say the heater stopped working do you mean it no longer blows air? or that it no longer has heat?

Ok thanks , does it not blow warm from any vent on the front dash ? Can you hear clicking behind the dash when changing from full hot to full cold?

It does not blow any hot air from any vent and it does not make any noises if you move from hot to cold or vis versa

bottom 2 left buttons. They are the defrost and recirculate button. If you hold then about 6 seconds there will be a light that will come on and flash between the two it will relearn all the motors in the dash. See if at any time you feel heat. The motors should take about 30 seconds to relearn. If the lights keep flashing for a minute or more then you have a issue with the motors in the dash. At that point you need to get the codes read with a scan tool to see what motor is bad. Usually a motor fails or a link for the motor. Either way the dash will need to come out to check those. So let me know what you find with all the info I have given you. Lou P
