Thanks for writing in about your 2010 Dodge Nitro. From what you’ve described, you may have a bad air control blend door actuator that is bad. The actuator needs to be tested using a scanner first to check for this. If you’d like to get this fixed, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can come to the car’s location to diagnose the issue with your AC.
