A car heater taps off engine heat. If you aren't driving, then the engine is cold and there's no heat for the car heater to use.
Because it's warmer in the afternoon...

Everyone says it does but I was A sales rep at a new car dealership for A couple years and I could never tell that the black one was hotter that the white, In the summer they were all hot as fire,, In winter they were cold, cold, cold.
