: Heater doesnt work (a/c does instead)

I have a 98 catera, 75k miles. With winter approaching I have no heat. I recently got a used radiator put on because I was losing coolant, and I still am, no leaks are apparent though. The h20 pump works cause the coolant swirls while the car is on. I put two bottles of coolant over the summer-NOW.

The heater used to work, even though it was just on your driver side, the passenger side blows A/C air. But now no heat at all. Once the cars warmed up and u turn it on I feel heat for 10-15 seconds then nothing. If I turn off the heat, I sometimes still feel it on when driving on the E-way. What is up?

Ive heard to reset the temp. by holding the on/off switch with the auto temp. button. This doesnt work

If the other A/C controls are not working properly, the panel may be out. Otherwise, if everything else is OK, no idea
