    A while back i took the dash off my fiesta to get at the radio. A bit of a pain but no other way to do it. When i put it back together i noticed the heater no longer blew hot air, only cold. I asumed it was that i had not put the heater switch back together correctly or aire had come away from the ratchet thing that pulls the wire in and out [see pic] But on inspection it looks fine. Any ideas what i have done to it. A bad time of ear to be without a heater when i am on 5.30am start

    the thermostat is in the control box. it uses electrickery to control the solenoid that sits on top of the scuttle.
    The one in our puma got stuck on and a new unit fixed it.
    its that or the solenoid could be stuck. I cant remember if it defaults on or off, so you could try unpluging the solenoid
