Replaced battery - Now heater isn't hot.....
Well I thought I'd be good and prepared for winter and changed my battery yesterday. The old one was starting to sound sluggish on starting in the mornings and since my commute is too short to replace the charge with lights on in the dark mornings I decided to go for a brand new one for the winter.
All went well, I even remembered the radio code.
Got in this morning, started on the button, driving along nicely - but when I switched on the heater it failed to get hot, even on "Hi" setting. Engine temp was normal. In an almost 1 hour drive nothing changed. No hot air at all.
Very nice for winter..... wife already rolling her eyes and saying "Alfas..."
It's a 2004 156 2.0 JTS.
Any ideas? It's been absolutely fine up until yesterdays battery change so can't believe I will go down the thermostat route.
Have I blown a fuse? (Optimistic as ever!)
