If you have duel climate control, there are two blend doors in the system. Their purpose is to allow heat or AC to enter the vehicle where you want it. It sounds like one is stuck and not working and the other still works. Have that checked.

Trust me. Have the blend door checked. It won't stop the air, it will just change the temp.

The blend doors should be located near the heater core. You may need to remove part of the dash to access them. Check to see if they are both working when you change the temps.

Yes, as often as you like. And tell as many people as you can. Just fyi, I usually am able to get around 1600+ posting done per month. With all the other techs, I think we respond to aprox 10,000 per month, but I can't get to all of them and the others that work for the site are the same. We do the best we can. If you want a response within 24 hours, make any donation of amount you can, even if it's a dollar. That puts your question on a special page that we go to first to make sure everything is answered. Please remember, this is a free site. You can use it as often as you want. You DO NOT have to donate. I only mention that incase you don't get a response as quickly as you want. However, this time, for example, since you and I have already been in touch, every reply you add to the post, I get an email saying you responded, so I get to them ASAP. Other times you may have to wait longer for the initial response, but we will get to it.

If you have other questions, let me know.
Take care and thanks for using 2carpros. Com/

Tell you what I have a little site where I do a little computer work on line ''its a new site and really its not a great site cause i'm not really sure how to optimize it
but I do get a few people come in there. If you don't mind I can added your site as a external link on my site. You might get a few more people come in. When people visit my site. It might even help my site as well cause people are always looking for some one to help them with their vehicles. So let me know what you think ok. I'll be in touch
