I can suggest three things that will normally fix this.
1. Fluid level
2. Clogged Heater Core
3. Bad Thermostat
Section 1. Fluid Level
First, check the fluid level in the radiator (not the expansion/overflow tank) when the car is cold.
You will need to remove the radiator cap (push down and turn), as I say, when the car is cold so you don't get burned. If low, start the car with the cap off, turn on the heater and top off the radiator with antifreeze when cold then again after the car gets up to normal operating temperature. The thermostat will normally be open to the heater core at that time. Top off the radiator with the car running (since you have the cap off there will be no pressure build up so this is safe to do).
Recap the radiator making sure it is all the way on (push down and turn) and check your heater.
If no heat, feel the rubber hoses that go into your heater core. These are typically on the firewall and close together. Feel both hoses.
If one is hot and the other is cold, do the steps in section 2. If neither one is hot, skip to section 3.
Section 2. Clogged heater core
With one hose hot and the other cold... you have a clogged heater core (a small "radiator" inside the heater). One way to fix this is to back-flow the heater core. This can be done without removing the heater core with a garden hose. To do this, remember which heater hose is cold.
Remove both hoses that go to the heater core at the firewall, you will then have two metal pipes that come out of the firewall. Take a garden hose and force water into the "cold" water pipe. Sometimes you will need to get another hose that is slightly smaller than the pipe at an auto parts store or, cut the end off the garden hose to get some good water pressure into the heaters core from the garden hose. This will force water in the reverse direction it normally flows and blow out gunk that probably has collected inside it.
If nothing comes out (really clogged), you will need to replace the heater core or take it to a radiator shop to be cleaned and reconditioned.
You may want to flush the whole cooling system as well because that gunk came from somewhere.
Section 3. Bad thermostat
If neither heater hose is hot... you probably have a bad thermostat and this should be replaced. You can normally find this by tracing the top, large main radiator hose to where it connects to the engine block. The thermostat is normally inside where this large hose connects to the block. (make sure to use a new gasket and silicone to seal it).
Good luck and stay warm this winter! -Dan

You need a new thermostat or your thermostat is stuck. Go to the auto parts store and pick you one up for cheap. Their fairly easy to install if you got the tools and are somewhat handy.

If you car is coming to temp but you get nothing from the heater the first place to look is the coolant valve for the heater core. It is sometimes called a mixing control. See if the control is jammed or your control cable is frozen or disconnected from this valve.
The valve should be somewhere near the cooling lines leading into the heater core. I am sorry, but they may be under the dashboard as well.
Good luck and be careful.
