HEATER AND A/C WORKS INTERMITENTLY

2000 Ford Taurus

Heater problem
2000 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 196000 miles

I love this car, but the heating and A/C is driving me nuts. I have changed the thermostat, and flushed the system, but still the same, I sometimes get heat or air if I fiddle with the switch, which tells me that the heater core is not the problem, cause if it was plugged, you would never get heat, and this should not affect the A/C. SO I suspect the switch, does anyone know how to check or replace the switch. And can you tell me if this sounds like a possible solution to you.
I can not afford to take the car to the mechanic right now, so any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
