Thanks for your advice iantt , i have just bought a Streetka with similar symptoms (although mine's a 'keeper').

How may i tell the difference? The temp control knob on the heater control panel has very little or no hand resistance, if this a help.

Regards,

Simon

to diagnose correctly you need a multimeter. check for 12v supply to the heater control valve, and check across the connector for s clock pulse voltage(basically 12v on and off repeating approx 18 times a minute with heater control set to mid temp. if it is pulsing then the control panel is ok and heater control valve is at fault

Agreed. HCV - ours was the same - changed the valve, solved the problem.
