    Under the hood next to the bulkhead on the left looking from the front of the car, you will find hot water pipes going into the heater unit. There is a valve with two wires going into it ( solenoid valve), it's stuck in the off position. Check for power, tap it , or change it. I had exactly the same prob. The valve is situated on one of the pipes, and is not easy to change. Hope this helps...
