I just recharged my air conditioner. I am only getting cold cold air on the passenger side the driver side vents on each side of the steering wheel are blowing hot air. I found two actuators one for the blend door and the one for the recirculate, I removed the blend door actuator and move the blend door by hand it made no difference, could there be one more actuator I do not see?
Do you

Try pulling hvac fuse inside car for sixty seconds with key on then reinstalling. It may reset it otherwise it will have to be checked. If this is automatic temperature control where you set the temperature it will need to be scanned for codes as it may be something else causing the problem. However since you said you just added Freon what I am sending in picture can be the real problem a lot of mechanics have had same problem and this would need to be done to fix it.

Yes, but it may be that what I sent is what needs to be done. This is what other mechanics have experienced with same vehicles.

Hey 20BONNEVILLE01,

Just did some research and there is one other actuator that is located on the top of the heater box, check this guide out so you get an idea.
