Hi Phil,
the blower and heater options should work without a/c.
The sliding lever open/close a valve for engine cooling water to the heater on the box under the hood.
This valve is often damaged oder leaking. For this reason some owner remove the water hoses.
This should be a first aid : https://chrysler300club.com/how/hvalve/hv.html
The box and hose connections are a bit different between aircon or not but this is shown in the link.
Another - maybe bigger problem - is the push button operated heater switch. The switches are not operated by current but with vacuum.
Sometimes the whole operating block is damaged or diry. Sometimes - like on my 61 New Yorker - all the vacuum hoses are missing.
These block activates the vacuum actuators for open / close the airflaps and also the electrical fan.

and : http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=39275&...

You will find more in the search section of this forum.
I suggest you learn the function of the system and check if all parts in your car are on board. .

Good luck
Roger

Phil, on Ac cars the blower is controlled by the heat lever. You should be able to pull it out (2 steps) for to start the blower
