First thing to do- Check the antifreeze level in both the overflow and the radiator. Top up as necessary with correct antifreeze type. If fluid is excessively low, get your vehicle to service shop to check for leaks.

Just stopped yesterday. Never had a car heater go out before. Only blows cold. Seat heaters work fine.
