Most likely this is an issue with the blend door. This is a very common problem on the Explorer and a 98 is about due for the failure. Check for diagnostic information and a fix.

What are plenum doors and where are they located in the heating system for a 1995 Ford Explorer?

The plenum door is inside your heat/AC system near the heater core. It opens and shuts incrementaly to allow the heater core to heat the air passing by, or closes to keep passing air from heating at all. If you open the glove box on a 95 explorer, you can see the plenum motor... and you should be able to see/hear it moving as you adjust the temperature control dial from cold to hot.

How can you access and change the heater panel light on a 2000 Jetta?

I was struggling with this myself.. You might have got your answer already, but in case you haven't... Turn the middle dial to zero (the fan control) and pull on it with some pilers. You should probably wrap then with a cloth as to not scratch the dial. You'll see the bulb and have to use some needlenose pilers to pull it out..

Why is the heating on a G20 1990 Chevy Van not working?

Personally I do not know about a G20 1990 Chevy Van but the basics of heating are, the thermostat, heater control valve, heater fan and heater matrix. Does the van overheat at all, engine wise? Could be possible the system just needs a flush out. When you turn the heating dial (presuming it is a dial) you should hear a clunk which normally indicates the heater control valve switching over. Other than that, I've said all I can. Hope to be of some help, hope you get it sorted out.
