My Altima had that problem and it was the water pump going out. It started with temperature gauge was moving, but then it started leaking and finally the heater stopped being warm at idle.

Your 2005 Nissan Altima has no heat when the car is standing still?

My 2005 Nissan Altima is doing the same thing. The car has no heat when the car is stopped. You have to be going at a steady pace for it to stay warm. I have had the car looked at, at a Nissan dealership but without paying $800 dollars it can't be fixed..and there is no guerantee that it will work after the work. The dealership guy said he has alot of people complain about the heater in the 2005 Altima. Nissian won't do anything about it he said.
