Replaced heatervalve but still blowing hot air


I replaced the heatervalve but still get only hot air even when i turn heaterknob on cold. I tested the valve i took out with a current from a power supply and it seems to work fine. When i connect it to the connector on the car the valve does not close/open. I measured 13,5 volt on the connector but probably there's not enough current to open/close the valve.
What can cause this problem?
Help I'm melting!
