a/c blew all summer but the heat will not kick in. it just blows air. someone suggested bleeding the air out of the valve on the top radiator hose. did that and it didnt work, and i almost got scolded. can some tell me what the problem might be. New Jersey is no joke in the winter. Help please.

I'd check the valve in the heater hose between the block and the firewall. It could also be the control unit on the dash. All fuses should be checked.

Tell us whether you have the climate control (automatic) system, or the standard system.

Does the instrument cluster temp gauge register any movement? If not, change thermostat.

fortunately i have heat but unfortunately that's all i have. for some reason my temp is stuck on the hottest setting and even if i turn it down it'll still stay on hot. the fans also arent working right, only the highest setting will turn on. mine is non auto climate controls. ill probably look at it more tonight and hopefully figure out whats wrong

i was going to have someone look at it but the acura dealership and a acura/honda specialist shop both said theyd have to have the car for the day and i cant exactly do that, expecially when these places are about 45 min drive. i was gonna look at the manual that i downloaded but it's confusing me expecially when it doesnt exactly have the explanation for the scenario i am in.
