It's possible that the link (shaft) between heater control knob and heater valve is broken. You generally can tell if this is the problem, when the knob can be turned without significant resistance. If this is the case, remove the driver side speaker, which allows you to see the valve and associated parts. You can tell if something is broken if you move the knob, but the stem of the valve does not. As a temporay measure, to get heat, I think you may be able to reach in with pliers and turn the shaft of the valve. Good luck.
