So I got a hold of a proper scanner, and ran the AC tests. I got these DTCs:
B15C8 Left Blending Air Flap Actuator Stiff or Blocked.
B15C8 Left and Right Footwell Flap Actuator is Stiff or Blocked.
I also had one for B1460 Blower Regulator, but after I reset the codes, that one went away.
So I have these questions:
If only the Left Blending Flap (LBF) has a problem, shouldn't I only be experiencing a problem on one side of the vehicle?
How come there is not even a TINY bit of cold coming from ANY vent? It's all hot.
I did a live data test, which confirmed the fault codes. The position of the Actuator Motor was not the same as specified by the Control Unit, during the live test on the LBF. Same thing was true for the position of the Left and Right Footwell Flap Actuator Motors (there was a huge difference between their positions and the values specified by the Control Unit).
There were some other results too. For example, according to the test, my Compressor is running at 70%. The Air Conditioning/Engine Fan runs at 40% when the AC unit is not on AUTO, but runs at 100% when AUTO is switched on.
Also, when the the Climate Control unit is on, but is on manual, then you can't really feel that much air coming through any of the vents, and the car is quieter. But when you turn on AUTO, the car gets louder, and more air is coming through the vents. But it's all hot air.
Anyways, what do you think is going on here? Again, there are mainly two things that are really bothering me:
1) The fact there's no cold air coming from any vent
2) The test seems to be suggesting a problem is ONLY at the footwell and left blender flap
