Do any of the indicator lights or temperature displays show anything at all?
Do you hear the air conditioner compressor coming on?

The screen is working telling me the temp fan speed and what not. There is no dash lights relating to the climate control. Not sure about the air con compressor. I hear buzzin for a few seconds then I play with the fan settings.

I'd start by pressing the AC switch to see if it kicks in or not, you should be able to hear the engine note change pitch when the compressor engages or disengages. Once you figure out when the AC is off, try pushing the temperature up button and see if there is any change in the air temp coming out, you'll need the engine to be warm for the heater to work.

My E38 climate control indicator lights come on and off randomly, but the back end control still appears to be functional, so it may be something similar in your car.
