When using the air conditioning, cooled air comes out of the left center vent and warm air comes out of the right center vent. I have tried all combinations of the air conditioning buttons in an attempt to get cool air out of the left vents, but have had no luck. Is there some sort of valve inside the system that isn't actuating to allow cooled air to these vents?

Blend door motor. It may be bad but you need a shop with a scan tool to verify by trying to make it work manually.

Thanks. I am having issues with air bag light. Seat pad replaced and light still comes on. So I will ask my mech to check out the blend motor door. Assume the motor is in a very difficult spot to get to. John

Not easy. Best to let a tech perform this operation.
