    First, you must verify the engine is getting hot enough. Check the heater hoses going into and coming out of the heater core. Make sure they are both very hot. If both are not hot, you may have a thermostat sticking open. If one is hot and the other is not, you may have a restricted heater core. If they are both hot, you may have a temperature control issue inside the car.
