    O/D OFF light flashing means transmission trouble codes need to be read. Do not continue to drive. Temp gauge may be a stuck thermostat or a bad sending unit.

    If your heater isn't blowing any warm air, I would also look at the coolant level, and the heater control valve. Are you getting warm hoses?

    Might want to try a different scanner. Transmission codes cannot be read by all scanners.

    not sure on transmission issue.

    Low temp (had the same issue) - replaced thermostat temp now normal and heat works great, Therm showed no sign of defect in boiling water, replaced anyway.

    Heat/No AC or AC/No Heat - either temp damper door control motor has broken gear(like mine) or Top of Door post broken.

    I replaced my therm as I had low temp and weak heat ( my door was stuck in the heat position ) as one of the gears in the drive unit was stripped, I dropped the glove box door and removed the 3 bolts, removed the control unit, opened it up, took out the peice that fits into the top of the damper door and am able to change it from cold/hot (PITA), mostly flapps in the breeze, an open window creates low pressure in the cabin and with the fan off moves to the heat position, I then turn the heat on low and the door stays in the heat position. I plan on replacing the unit when I have a spare $50
