SOURCE: Heater not working
Depending on what package the Jeep came with, you could have a broken or disconnected vacuum line to the heater doors.
If it's electronic, there could be a blend door accuator not working.
There could be a bad heater control valve or just a engine thermostat that's staying open all the time.

Sounds like you may have a partially plugged heater core. You could flush this out separately, from flushing radiator & engine block. Diconnect heater hoses going to your heater core and clamp off, so not to loose coolant from engine. Now hook up separate hose to one side of heater core pipe and flush out with typical garden hose. Repeat procedure on both heater core inlets. Reconnect original heater hoses and test difference. You may have to add an additional litre of antifreeze. If this don't work i suggest changing heater core. Good luck.........Ron.

If the "Heater In Hose" gets hot, and the "Heater Out Hose" does not get hot, than either the Control Valve is sticking closed, or your heater core is plugged up with ****!
Have you used "Barrs Leak" or a simular product for a radiator leak? That will sometimes clog the heater core.
I have a 1993 Grand Cherokee, which "Normally" throws very hot air out of the heater, but lately sometimes it only throws warm air, till I make my first stop, than it gets hot.....all because the heat control valve is hanging up.
Low water in the radiator will also cause a heater to not work.....if the water level is too low to circulate to the heater.

You have 2 posibilities.there are 2 motors on the heater box that run the blend doors for each side.That side motor may be bad or worst case the blend door arm that connects to the motor is broken.If it is broken the whole dash has to be removed so the heater box can be taken out to replace the blend doors.Big job,do a heater core while your there if you fix it so you dont have to do it again.
