I'm assuming you don't have the digital climate control since you have a 94 listed.

Are these the two knobs you are referring to? (The smaller middle ones)



If so, they should control the temperature for your HVAC system.

on top of the centre console there is also 2 dials that u have to select right on top of where ur radio is, (the left dial is for cold/hot and the right one is to open the main vent)
