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.

Cold on drivers side and heat on passengers side, actuators working properly and blend doors are moving. Heatertreater is for piece of plastic on actuator motor. I moved blend door by hand after disconnecting actuator and works fine, both sides freezing when moved in opposite direction.

1. Open the hood and remove the two headlight mounting
2. Remove the push-in fasteners for the grill area by prying under the
head of the fasteners with a flat bladed tool.

The ducts for the vents have these flaps and open and close to direct the air to different places. As is a very common problem on these trucks for a flap or two to break. To simplify, this is a $600-$700 repair at a dealership. The money really is all for labor, as the book calls for 5.5 hours to complete this job. The repair entail capturing the refrigerant from the AC system, and darning the coolant before they completely remove the dash to get to the source of the problem.
If you are adventurous, you can do much of this yourself. Please note there are two different levels that this issue entails.
1) If you get good hot heat on one side, and it's able to move properly from floor, to vent, to defrost and all areas in between, then you can fix this yourself without removing the coolant and refrigerant. Make sure that as you do these, air is not leaking of the other areas that it should not be.
2) If you have heat on one side, and you also can't direct the airflow entirely to floor, vent, and defrost, then you have to do the big fix. If you pay someone to remove the refrigerant, you can do the rest yourself. Though, if you look on Google you can find kits that help you fix this by cutting a hole in the bottom of the dash. It's not perfect, but lots of people swear this is the best option. I can't link you to any products because I can't endorse any of them.
Due to the common nature of this break, if you go to a dealership they will do the over all larger repair and replace both the commonly broken flappers. This is the directive from Chrysler, and what the book lists to do for either issue. A non-dealership mechanic might fix just what is broke, but eventually the other flapper will break too.
