If yours has left/right temp controls I would suggest checking your heater valve. It's not uncommon for one side of these to fail. So you could have heat or cold all the time on one side and the other works as it's supposed to. Best way I can think of to diagnose it is to disconnect the two outlets off of the valve itself and swap them. If the other side now functions how it's supposed to you need a new valve.
