[s-cars] No heat

Sunny day yesterday? Parked out in the sun?

If so, you probably don't have any problem. When you park in the sun, the
dash temp sensor warms up and gives a (false) warm cabin reading, so the
climate control calls for cold. It's a bug (undocumented feature?) of the
system. Try it again today after the car has been sitting overnight (out of
the sun).

If that's not the case, you should probably read the error codes on the
climate control to see what's up.
