It seems as if your mode door actuator has failed. The mode door actuator is responsible for moving the mode door. The mode door is responsible for blocking off air flow/ allowing air flow to certain areas of the vehicle. The mode door actuator failure can cause some or all of the functions of your climate control not to work. I would recommend having the mode door actuator tested using the manufacturers recommended procedure to determine if it has failed. If the mode door actuator is faulty, I would recommend replacing it in order to resolve this issue.
