It could be your thermostat inside your radiator hose. They are a common thing to fail, but luckily relatively cheap and easy to DIY with some automotive background.

Thermostats usually work with a spring that allow them to have a closed "door" while your car is still cold working its way to optimum operating temperature. (Usually around 200°F depending on vehicle. You can check with a parts store for your thermostats rating) Once hot the thermostat opens to keep the engine from continuing to get hotter to the point of overheating.
When a therm. gets stuck in the open then your vehicle will usually not allow cabin heat in efforts of keeping emissions down. Cold running engines produce more hydrocarbons = not environmentally friendly.
This could also trigger a code that could set your check engine light. Before you go changing anything you should stop at an auto part shop where they can check what codes are stored for free. Codes aren't black and white though so do some research after as well.

Does your car overheat too?
If so, you could have a faulty thermostat, an air pocket in your cooling system or maybe even a leak somewhere. My truck's heat would only work while I was driving, then stopped working altogether while the engine started to overheat. I changed the thermostat, then the heat would blow hot/cold/hot/cold, I didn't realize you had to bleed the air out of the system after changing the thermostat. I did that and now the heater and engine run great.

Disconnect the battery to take all the power out of the ECU. Check each fuse manually buy pulling each one. Wait two hours, put the key in the ignition but not turned, and reconnect the battery. Wait a further 15 minutes. The ECU and antitheft system will be reset. Cross fingers and start the vehicle.
