No heat

I have a 2009 Ranger in amazing shape, it was my Dad's and it has less than 13k miles on it. There isn't any heat coming out of the vents. The heat worked last winter but now nothing. The heater hoses get hot but that's where it ends.

Inside the air box where heater core lives is the Blend Door, that is the most likely problem.
It is controlled by a motor(actuator), and that is usually what quits working, although the door itself can break where it attaches to the actuator.

To get to the actuator and blend door requires a bit of work in removing dashboard parts.

Google: ford ranger blend door actuator replacement

I didn't see any specifically for 2009 Ranger, but you will get the idea of what is involved and how to do the repair

Could it be anything else? I've spent @2 hours and all I can do is touch the back 2 bolts. I can't seen to be able to get the socket on there, even after removing the seat and having the socket. There is a wire bundle directly above the back of the actuator that keeps the ratchet from straightening up and down.

Disregard my previous post, I hooked up the mew door actuator and it did not move, I believe(hoping) it's a fuse.
Had enough for the day, took the cover of the ole Camaro, took her for a drive and now am sipping on a cold one.
Thanks for all the help
