The heater in my 2006 tundra is not working. The temperature dial rotates from blue to red but does not blow warm air

Hello,

It sounds like it could be something simple like the engine being low on coolant. But to be sure here is a great guide on fixing your heater.

Please let us know what you find. I'm interested to see what it is.

Hi,

I have found the location for you and if this valve is stuck or disconnected from the cable it will cause the heater not to work.

Please let us know what happens and upload pictures or videos of the problem.

Cheers, Ken

I jumped into my truck this AM, turned on defroster to clear the windshield, but no heat! Nothing in regular heater mode either. Gauge shows plenty of heat in engine(running normal) but only cool air comes out, despite the temp setting?
Has worked up until today, any suggestions?

Heater problem
2000 Toyota Tundra V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 32000 miles

About a week ago the heater stopped putting out hot air. The temp gauge shows mid range and the coolant level is up. How do access the the temperature control system? I tried looking under the dash but could not access the control cable to see if there was a problem with it. What else do I need to look for?
Also, my radio antenna base is loose. I pried off an access tab inside the passenger side of the front fender. I could see that the plastic sheath for the coax was off the cable and it looks like that is what stabilizes the antenna base. How do I access that area without taking off the fender? Or do I have to remove the fender to get to the antenna base?

No heat-check the thermostat and the heater control valve, and heater core-
