No heat condition, but a hot heater core!

Sounds like the motor that runs the flaps that control whether fresh air
goes over the heater core is not working.  It lives behind a cover on the
driver side of the heater core box.  I think it's several Phillips head
screws to get the cover off.  If I remember correctly,  it's much easier to
get to the motor if you remove the wiper motor assembly.  I'd start by
checking the wiring that comes out of the space behind that box and plugs
into a harness near where the mounting for the wiper assembly is.
