Hello, thank you for writing in. There may be one of several things happening. There are "blend doors" located in the duct work that control where the air flows. If the servo-motors that control these doors fail, or the switch fails to control them, you will experience these and similar symptoms. These can both be electrically tested. When it comes to accessing the blend door motors, it can be time consuming and tricky. Use a repair manual or step by step guide if attempting this repair from home. If you need assistance with this electrical testing, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
