    2001 Z3 Heater

    The air from the vents comes out cool when I have the heater on and the heater leaver all the way to max heat, but when I turn the fan up all the way it comes out hot. Any idea why?

    So you have hot air when the fan is on max, but cool air when the fan is on any other setting???
    Are you getting air flow at the lower fan settings? (Like the fan does not blow except when it is on max - which would indicate a faulty fan switch/rheostat) Otherwise, I haven't a clue--the temp control is usually at 3/4 to max to get heat that I can feel but I am usually able to just leave the fan on low with the heat control on 7/8 and it gives plenty of heat.

    The fan works fine.
