Your mode door is controlled by vacuum check the vacuum hose on the left side of the intake manifold. these some times fall off leaving your mode door with no vacuum and the default position of the mod door is defrost.

Chances are the electronic/digital HVAC control unit is bad. This same problem happened to me and I had to replace the entire unit. The dealer wanted to charge $800 for just the part! After I freaked out on them, they found a used one for less than half. Sorry, but there's no easy fix here.

You need part GM Part number 89018675 or ACDelco 15-73596. The Mode Selector Actuator. What happens is the part is a CHEAP part POORLY designed and when it goes to turn the flaps inside the HVAC unit its the plastic gear slips instead of turning the flap!!!
Just to forward you you might want a deal to install this art for you unless your good at fixing your own vehicle, because you need SMALL sockets and a lot of patience to get this part in!!!
The part is ALMOST directly above the steering shaft for your steering wheel, so theres a lot you got to remove before you will even see them!!!
I only recommend you to have a dealer put this part in for you, unless you have your own service manual!!
Because there is 5 of these darn things and if you pick the wrong one you will have to do it all over again!!!
3 on the Drivers side and 2 on the Passengers side!!
But replacing this part SHOULD solve all your problems!! AS it did for me and i was having the same issues as you have described!!

You probably have a vacuum leak on the passenger side. its a small plastic hose some times they come unpluged from the engine. or brake.
