Question about Kia Spectra
It can't be the thermostat or the blower - in the case to the thermostat the engive will overheat pretty fast and in case of the blower you would get heat when driving.
Your problem is with the control valve on the heater and its commands: either the valve is blocked in the shut position (or it's clogged) or is no longer commanded. The temperature button uses some cables to pass the command to the lever of the valve - you must remove the central console cover and check the cables; if the cables appear ok and move accordingly to the position of the button then check the lever; if the lever moves then you must replace the valve - it's either defective (the lever no longer rotates the flap in the valve or the valve is clogged.
