Before I replaced the ac program module I checked the vacuum and it pulled good. Also the vacuum inside the module is good. And it makes the control arms move. Is it possible that the blend door is broken inside the unit? If so will I have to take out the whole dash to get into the box? Thanks

Here's the diagram of your system, it could be one of the mode doors stuck, or the actuato could be NG if you have a vauum tester/pump, apply vacuum to them and see if the lever on them move, if the hold vacuum, maybe a diaphram on it is bad...
