It could be one of many reasons... water pump, thermostat, cooling system to name a few. I had no heat in my car during a very cold spell and had the mechanics do a reverse system flush. (Whatever the heck that is.) But it seemed to work on my car.

What would be an alternative to get heat from the heater fan in a car instead of using the car radiator?

Cars produce a lot of electricity as well, both to charge the battery back up and to run the fan, lights, radio, AC, etc. An in-line electric heater would work well too, especially for electric cars that don't produce the heat that internal combustion cars do. Another reason for this would be for high-end cars that want to produce heat for the interior before the engine is fully heated. A built in ceramic heater (much like a toaster) can do this just fine.
