Hello there,

Welcome to Smartz ..

When you move the lever, is there any resistance ?? like the trap door is moving ?? If not, the cable may have snapped, or disconnected from the "door".

Cheers

Something similar happened on my old Pulse. It was max. heat or cold, no mid-setting.

The thermostat was bust. Its a plug in unit about the size of a matchbox.

Don't know how easy it is to replace tho, sorry!

If its the Lever, or the cable, you will need to remove the centre console, and find the cables. These are on the left hand side of the centre console, as you look at it.

If the cable is o.k, does your engine temp stay on 3 blobs ?? does it ever go to 4 ?? this may indicate a thermostat problem, but as you can't get anything other than warm, I doubt this is it.

Post up what you find ... or as you are near me, PM, I may be able to come around and give you a hand ....
