Hello everyone. I am new to the BMW world having just taken over ownership of a 95 318ti with about 60K miles. Everything seems to be working fine except the car has no heat. The air seems to work really well with nice cold air. The blower works well and the air can be directed to floor, dash, or defrost with no problem. The the radiator fluid was just flused and changed so everything seem fine there. I do not have my manuals yet but they are in the mail!... ANY Help you can provide would be great.

I have an Allante, Corvette, HD, Gravely tractor and now a BMW. The forums that I have joined have been very helpful to me in the past and I think that I have even been able to help some other people. I am happy to be here and look forward to sharing information with you all.

check the main vent (the center one above the controls) there is two horizontal dials, one is for air flow the other has blue on one side and red on the other. you must select the red for heat. its like an override of sorts, check that first if that doesnt fix your problem then check your temp gauge see if it goes up to normal engine temp position which is straight up or 12 oclock.

If you've got the turn dial temp control knob, the end of the cable might have come loose from the vent behind the dash.
Remove the glovebox, and you should be able to see the actuating cable on the side of the heater case. Turn the knob by hand, and look for the cable to move. If the end is loose from the mount, secure it, and it should work.
