Heating turned on. When i got out of car then back in again I started the car but the heating failed to turn on. The next day when I was driving to the garage the heating started working again. It lasted a week or so. Now the same happened again heating working ok. Got out of car and when I got back in car again turned engine on no heating. Went to work the next morning heating came on after 10 minutes of driving.


Is it the heater motor / fan that is not working ?

Should be able to hear or feel air / heat from vents if motor functioning as it should

If motor fault , check heater resistor , wiring and plug connection / contacts .You usually have to remove glove box to get access
