As the title says...I took the dash apart and after reinstalling it back my heater does not seem to work. It still blows air but when you slide to the warm section it doesnt warm up. Also before that, the ac/heater slider was stuck and so I forced it a little then it came loose. I looked under the console and saw there was a cable line that attaches to the slider. The slider does not seem to be broken and everythings still attached. Does anyone know wats going on??

I guarentee its the heater cable, which has either come unattached or something holding it to the heater control switch has broken. The only way to fix this problem is to manually remove those parts and re-install them. You would also have to check the cable and the insulation around the cable which can slide between each other causing the heat/cold not to change. If so you would have to check the connector from the heater box end and the heater control end, and see if the clip/connector is either broken, or not put in correctly.

I have the same problem, I drove my car for 4 years and never used the heater, lived in Guam, then once i got to the states and tried to use it the slider was sticky, so I went behind the center console and manually turned the switch, now my heater works but to get it cold again I have to turn the switch again, I herd that its the cable that connects the slider with the switch/lever behind the center console against the firewall and that installing a after market cd player or like me never using it the cable bends and needs to be replaced, its like 6 bucks new, I have just been to busy with school, I would check that, also your slider since its plastic, the clip with it might have broken

**UPDATE**

Finally, after few weeks, I finally took the time and checked what was wrong w/ my heater today. Following the cable line i found that the line came apart under the glove compartment. Well heres what it looks like under there:


Here is the cable line, where my finger is holding up. It hooks on to the slider and runs down under next to the glove compartment on the passenger side.


From a view from the bottom up, i outlined the cable line in YELLOW and outline where in RED is where the cable line hooks on to. if you can see, the cable line has a loop so u just simply stick it back into the pin outlined in red.


And so there I FIXED the problem. *There is also a clip that holds onto the cable line next to the pin...make sure it sticks back into the clip.

Hope this helps some of you here.

i got the problem resolved. i went and got another assembly couple days ago and put it in. Found out to realize the clip the cable is suppose to clip into was kind of bent and it kept slipping out. Then the thing where the clip slides onto was moved up and that was preventing the cold air temp button to move and made it think it was blowing warm air out all the time.
