Re: Heater Blowing Cold Air !!!

Have you considered the prospect of a damaged switch at it's interior?
A few years ago I had exactly the opposite problem, not being able to choose cold air.
The solution was given by opening the tableau and repairing it without using any new spare part.
Now it works almost as new, as I think I have lost a 10% adjustment at the end of cold choice. Practically, even with very cold outside temperatures I can' t import air at it' s atmospheric temperature, as it comes in a little bit heated no matter what I do.

Are both pipes to the matrix hot? If so, then its the control switch that moves the valve.

Re: Heater Blowing Cold Air !!!

My tipo is blowing cold air when I want hot, however when sitting still ideling it warms up and blows hot air, when driving the temp gauge rearly goes above 50-60 when standing still for a while it will go to 90+ till the fan kicks in. Any ideas

You need a new Thermostat, but make sure you bleed the system fully.
When hot, feel the bottom radiator pipe. If its cool, water is not circulating confirming the Thermostat fault [after fan kicks in]. The fact the temp needle does not get up to temp proves thermostat is faulty.
