First, replace your coolant temp sensor to be sure youre getting a good signal to your gauge. Then test your mechanical fan to make sure its working properly. A bad fan clutch will keep the fan on at all times and keep coolant temps way down, and rob fuel mileage. Test or replace your thermostat to make sure its on working order, it may be stuck open. When youre sure the cooing system is up to par, and the heat still doesn't work, try flushing the heater core and/or the entire cooling system. Dakotas and durangos are known for clogging heater cores.
