The actuator has gone bad. They can be programed, and reset, but usaly they are bad, and that will only patch the problem for a while.

It sounds like your electronic vent actuator has gone bad, it's common to go bad and may need to be replaced. There are tinny gears that wear out and the vent actuator stops working. You can try this, turn the radio off first so you don't have to enter the reset code to activate your radio. Disconnect the battery for 30 seconds and reconnect it, if the actuator has lost it's base line and stuck in the open heat position, this will reset it, just make sure the setting is to cold and off before disconnecting and reconnecting the battery. If this does not work, then it's a bad actuator and Auto Zone should have the part you need and will have the step by step instructions for you to the job you self, I believe the dealer is a $415,00 repair cost for this. Good luck and keep me posted.

SOURCE: air conditioning
This is most often caused by a defective air temperature blend door motor, this is whhat controls the temp of the air coming out the dash register vents, the actuator is deep in the dash, u must remove the entire dash assembly to replace the part.

Two things can be the problem,first,try adding ,a little freon,if it is low,it will only cool one side,then if this does not help,there is a door actuator motor that controls this,it could be not working,the dash has to come out to replace this actuator motor,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.
