My heaters work fine unless stuck in traffic/ not moving then they are cold until moving again !!

Any ideas anyone

Thanks

I don't know specifically for the Civic, but most heating systems work of the top of the engine coolant system. If your engine is low on coolant, when you're stationary there's no cooling cycling around the top of the system, so it will just blow cold air.
I would try checking your coolant level.
I could be wrong - hopefully someone more knowledgeable will be along soon...
