Sounds like a heater hose got left loose or maybe one of the hoses are leaking a little.
car cuts off
Yes, it is very possible that a heater coil is clogged up or even needs replaced if the windows are fogging up. An auto parts store can give you the price for a new heater coil.
Look for a leak in the heater/defrost system. Most times it is caused by a minor water leak in the heater system. Steve
That means either you have air in your heater core or your heater core is being bypassed
your heater coil is leaking.replace it
bad fan clutch, clogged radiator.....................when you turn the defrost on, the heater core is acting like the radiator...............good luck, Mike
A leaky heater core can do that. Also if the AC is not operative, the defrost mode can't dry the cabin air.
The heater core is leaking coolant.
More than likely its the defrost timer or the defrost heater. You can try and advance the timer which is usually located at the top of the refrigerator compartment. Its usually a small round circle with a slot in the middle. Take a slotted screwdriver and advance it till you hear it click then stop advancing it. This more than likely is defrost mode. It should kick on the defrost heater. Listen closely if you can hear the heater kicking on and sizzling the ice. If you do advance the timer to run after about 1/2 an hour and repeat the process until the ice is gone. If this works then the timer is defective and needs replaced. If this process doesn't work then the defrost heater is probably defective.
either the fuse that was put has too much wattage or not enough
It depends on what is wrong with it. First make sure there is vacuum going into the cab from the engine compartment. ANSWER If the problem is switching between Defrost and Vent, the problem is most likely a vacuum issue since this function is vacuum controlled. If the issue is lack of heat, most likely the problem is with the heater core or blend door. Check HeaterTreater.net for pictures and diagnostic information...and a blend door fix.

a heater hose runs from intake to heater core to radiator. the heater core is were the heat comes from inside the car as well as defrost
Yes they have a heater/defroster.
failed Heater core
If you are running your heater with the vent in the recirculation selection you start to produce the fogging effect. This is because there is no way for the air to escape from the car. The only way to avoid the fog is to run your heater in the fresh air selection (located above your cup holder). As per the manual the only time that you should run your heater with the recirculation selection is when there is an unpleasant odor outside that you don't want in the car. IF the windshield stays fogged up, then it's possible that the heater core has sprung a leak and the fogging is from antifreeze. which does not evaporate. This heater core is under the dash INSIDE the heater assembly and is usually very difficult to replace. Check for wetness under the carpet below the heater/dash.

Looks like it may have to replaced again
recheck where you were at to replace the heater core,might have accidentally un plugged something.also look into blown fuses . good luck
The fastest way to defrost a windshield is to turn the defrost vent on without heat or simply open the windows. Another option is to warm the inside of the car by turning the heater on.
it should if you have the heater control in the defrost position this is to remove the moisture from the air
heater core may be partly plugged .
Could this be 2 separate problems?Stuck in defrost modeNo heatSee "Related Questions" below for more about both
Prob the control switch. I have a similar problem with a 1993 Taurus. U put it on ac it blows out def. Def. blows out vent and none of it really blows out unless it's on high.
The heater switch is located in the middle of the car in the 1998 Ford Taurus. It is either above or below the radio.?æ
Antifreeze on the floor, windows fogging inside.
