Re: Heater not working

how is your coolant level? you may have some air bubbles, or the heater core might be clogged. does the car overheat?

Re: Heater not working

I haven't checked the coolant level yet. The fuses are fine, I feel a little bit of heat coming out of the vents but there isn't any circulation going on. Could the fan motor be busted? My car hasn't overheated yet..

Re: Heater not working

do you have air coming out (warm or cold) when the fan is on max?

Re: Heater not working

When the fan is on max, I have absolutely no cold or warm air coming out of the vents. When I turn on the accessory power, I can hear (what i believe to be) the fan motor turning on then it stops. I do hear clicking sounds coming from the vents when I turn the temperature **** from cold to hot.

Re: Heater not working

then its either a bad blower motor or the blower motor resistor. its the big fan thing under the glove box.

Re: Heater not working

01-05 Civics use a "transistor" instead of a blower resistor.

If the fan is running you should be able to hear it.

Re: Heater not working

I would say check the cabin air filters, they plug up and then no air can get through, they are behind the glove box.
