      For me, this is what corrected the issue. I was having the exact same issues you are describing. I felt the hoses going to the heater core as suggested on several sites describing this problem. The idea was to feel the heater core hoses if one of them is cooler than the other, then the core has a blockage. They were both hot so I started replacing parts. I replaced blower motor, thermostat and blend door actuator but none of this worked. So, I decided to clear out the heater core anyway. I disconnected both hoses and shot compressed air into the inlet and outlet. I then flushed both the inlet and outlet with water. (Make sure hoses are pointed securely away from you) I repeated this process 3 times. I then reconnected the heater core hoses, took off the radiator cap to clear air bubbles and started the car. After about 5 minutes, the air in the car was hot. After about 20 minutes I put the radiator cap back on and closed the hood. Apparently the heater core was blocked even though both hoses were hot. The heater has worked great now for 3 days and it doesn't take long for it to warm up. Additionally, the temperature gauge fluctuations have stopped. Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

      If the horn is wired correctly, check the horn relay or fuse.

    Heater does not work
    We just purchased a 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GT yesterday with 135,012 miles. It was sold as is. The heater is not working. Do you have a ballpark figure what it costs to fix the heater? No heat comes out of any of the settings, so we would not be able to drive ...

      It could be that you have a clogged up heater core or maybe your heater core have been bypassed by the previece owner.

      To bypass the heater core you have to connect the inlet and outlet hose together.

    How do I get the trunk to grab hold to close?
    The trunk usual grabs the lid and closes it the rest of the way. Now I don't even here the motor running could be a fuse? If not then what? I'd so where would the fuse box be located?

      If trunk has been slammed, it probably broke the plastic piece that holds the motor.

      Assuming you have already swapped (exchanged) the switches to see if the problem moved, then you can either bypass the switch using a jumper wire to confirm the problem is in fact the switch and not the motor. If yes, then replace the window switch with a new one.
      Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (Rock Auto) list the window switch for around $35.00 for your vehicle.

    Also previous owner has disconnected clutch safety switch. May have had an aftermarket system installed for locks and security.
