A restricted/plugged heater core can do that. Try flushing the heater core.

Heater fan switch won't move on 91 previa why?

Early Previas, prior to 1994, were notorious for overheating the heater switch and melting the plastic casing. Once melted, the plastic would interfere with the switch lever movement and would glue itself in the last positon set. Forcing the switch, may restore some of the blower speed positions, but usually just open circuits and must be replaced for a very high cost of labor.

Why might a 1994 Lincoln Town Car heater not be working?

HeaterYou might need a new thermostat or heater core.Lincoln put a thermal switch in the hoses that run to the heater core in cars of this age. This switch would not allow the blower motor to run until the coolant was warm. This was a "luxury" feature to keep the heater from blowing cold air on your feet. After a few years these switchs would go bad. This could be your problem. I have replaced mine once and I'm looking into a way to bypass it. You can just use the vent function with heat to keep warm until you replace the switch, that's what I'm doing for now. I believe the switch runs about $50 from FoMoCo. You could also have the problems listed in the other Lincoln town car doesn't have the switch in the heater hose , now where do i look i have good AC but no hot air , where is the vac moter for the heater to outside air switch located ??1994 a breed by its self ?? ill just bet

Would the thermostat or a limit switch cause a Teledyne Larrs series 1 EPG 250 heater not to stop heating after the pilot assembly and pressure valve have been replaced?

Do you mean that the heater will not shut down either by turning the thermostat down or turning the switch off. If turning the pump off will not shut down the heater it could possibly be one of the high limits or the gas valve has failed in the open position. If the heater will not fire when calling for heat then one or more components has failed. k

Where is the ac heater blower located under the dash or under the hood at the firewall it does not work on low speed only the other speeds work fine would this be the motor or switch?

For most GM trucks or SUV's, it's under/behind the glove box. But the most GM motors do not have multiple speed capacity. That is usually a function of the switch. Many of the GM multi speed vehicles use the heater function switch assembly to control motor speed. Unfortunately, many of them are "solid state" and require that the entire heater function switch be replaced when something goes bad.
