I have a 1997 Ford Ranger XLT 2-WD where the cabin temperature cannot be adjusted. It stays hot no matter what. I turn the temperature control knob all the way to the right and it doesn't effect the temperature. How do I fix this?

There is another fix for broken blend door. You can remove the broken door by going through the bottom with a razor knife and following the recessed triangle, cut through it to remove and replace the door without having to go through the problem of removing the heater box. They actually make a kit to fix the problem cost about $130. go to www.heatertreater.net for more information.
Have you tried changing the thermostat?

I have a 1997 Ford Ranger and I can't shut off the heat. Do you know how I can fix this?
Check to see if the switch is connected correctly, the thermostat could be stuck in the closed position causing heat to come through vents, or blower motor may need checked for faulty wiring/or replaced.
I have a 1997 Ford Ranger. There is no air conditioner, just basic heat. Anyway I lost the low and medium fan control. That left me only with high. I replaced the blower motor resistor and pig tail (because it was so rusted) still nothing. I took the blower motor out and jumped it and the blower works fine.
I checked continuity from the new tail and it looks fine, any other ideas what might be wrong? Also, when I first start the truck I here a beeping sound coming from under the glove box this beeps for about 30 seconds then quits. It starts beeping again after about 45 minutes of driving.

I have a 1997 Ford Ranger. Problem: I have heat all the time. I have checked the temperature control and it seems okay, as I can read a resistance change when moving the control.
