I have a 2000 328i. The heat on it does not work. Or, does not work most of the time i should say. I can turn it on and the blower works, but no heat. However, on two occasions, it did work. And sometimes, when the heat is not working, I can turn of the windshield defrost, and hot air will come out.

I see where smolck suggested vacuuming out the vent by the climate control panel. I thought I would try this, but I am not sure where this is located. Can someone give me some details?

Just to the left of the temp readout display you have a small set of vents. However, in your case it sounds more like you are low on coolant which will cause you not to have heat. I would bleed your system and top it off and see if that fixes the problem.
