It's likely that your car has whats called a "Blow through system". The system has a few vents that aren't connected to the a/c or heatin system and just bring in straight air from the outside. The point being that fresh air is always circulated. Are the same vents cold in the winter even with the heat on?

I've have never heard of a "only cold air system", but hey, nothing surprises me anymore. try replacing the control unit in the front. hopefully that will take care of the problem. If not you need to check your blend valve. (headache depending on location)

This car has the automatic temperature control system


The hot/cold switch is probably bad.you have a blend door box that opens to let the cold air in and closes to let the hot air in.From what you are saying this part is no responding to the switch movement.Make sure power is at the switch and power should go through the switch when put on cold air this moves the blend door.Some times the blend door goes bad and has to be replaced its under the dash on the right side.

Change your temperature setting to affect fan speed and on off mode. The Vapor is a problem on particularly humid days and effects Mercedes as well this too is affected by the temperature setting.

Temperature Control not working on 1999 Ford Explorer


Sounds like your temperature actuator is not moving or your temp door is broken. On max a-c ,coolant is shut off to your heater core allowing only cold air in.
