2006 jeep patriot sport, pipes are hot from heater core. The heat knob does adjust the throw of the white rod under steering wheel but heat never comes on. could it still be the blender motor?

or would moving the rod by hand open the heat? how do I rig it to stay on full blast?

On Mine the heat dial has a little gear that drives a toothed rack to actuate the cable. The plastic housing stretched and the gear jumped the teeth so I could not turn the heat on all the way. I dis-assembled the heater controls and re-assembled it and it works fine now. Hot Florida sun made the plastic soft.
