Q: A.c. not turning on at all

asked by on

I switched out the blower motor resistor and checked the blower motor but still nothing is coming out of the front vents

My car has 205 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The blower control blend door actuator on the evaporator case may be bad. Have the blend door actuator removed to see if the blend door can be turned by hand. Sometimes, the actuator breaks and other times, the blend door shaft breaks and the evaporator case has to be repaired or replaced.
