Question type: Maintenance & Repair

How can I manually turn the heat on so I can drive the car?  Help me Obi-Wan !!!!!   My
Suzuki has aluminum wheels, auto hvac, power drivers seat, cloth seating,  No sunroof,
front wheel drive only.  I haven't see anything that says my Suzuki is a Limited or any
other thing? So I guess in a base model....?

Crawl under the dashboard and open the heater blend door.

Does the fan work? Mark has one good idea, here is another some cars have a valve that opens when you slide your lever to warm, usually located near the firewall on the engine side, this allows coolant from engine to flow to the heater core, sometimes these can be operated manually to get the same results.
