heating not working!

i have a bmw 325 I (e36) and my heater is not working!
not blowing cool or hot air into the car
been reading that it might be the resistor unit and read it could be located under the dash
well i have looked under dash and cannot find it, am i looking in the right place and what EXACTLY does it look like?

Hey guys i am brand new to the site. how ever i am currently experiencing the same issue in my 1995 BMW 318is. only thing is that my issue is intermittent. i looked to check for rad fluid... found my fluid lvl to be very low. and am wondering if that may be the cause of the issue... if so... should i just top it up with regular canadian tire generic rad fluid... ?? and chris let me know if ur rad fluid is low... maybe we can find a common problem !!!

i think both u guys should check to see if u have battery positive and ground to the actual blower motor look up a wiring diagram and see what color the wires are and then use an dvom to check what the voltage is on thwe wires with a wire tap

but if the positive and negative wasn't connected wouldn't we not have any connection??... btw... i had to go out earlier today and take out my battery and go buy a new one... and when i tried the blower it was working after i had boosted to start the car... how ever i am sure that if i drove it for a bit and came bq to it... i would find it not working... for reasons i don't understand ... its been working on and off... i always thought that if it was the resistor or the fuse it would not work completely.... ... ... so wad do u mean check the connections?... what should we be looking for when we r down there?

so 2 days i decided to top up my RAD fluid to the "Cold" line... and now the heater is working properly... the blower is now working for the past 2 days and haven't noticed any issues with it... other than its a lil loud when it 1st turns... and then goes right bq to proper noise lvl... ... ... the noise is understandable given that it is -40 here ... so yea... if anyone hasn't check the RAD lvl ... i would start there.
