The blend door is stuck or not receiving the control knob information to change the temperature.
Your car uses an electronic blend door actuator. you will need to locate this devise under the dash. You may have to remove the dash to get to it. You will want to make sure that there is power coming in to the new switch and going out to the Blend Door Actuator. If you do not have power to the switch then find out why and fix the broken wire, if you have power to the motor but it won't move then replace the Blend Door Actuator (BDA).
Make sure the black wire to the BDA is grounded. The do the following:
Test the orange wire going to the BDA and the Yellow wire from the BDA to the switch for postive power. This will tell you if the BDA is getting power in from the car and out to the switch. Then make sure you get a power reading from the Red with White strip and the Red with Lite Green strip, this will tell you that the switch is sending the power back to the BDA to control the temp. If power is coming in to the BDA and not going out to the switch then the BDA is bad. If power is going to and from the switch back to the BDA then that also says the BDA is bad. If the ground is broken that will cause the BDA not to respond.

Try your spare key first. also, does the anti theft visual indicator (red flashing light) prove out, that is light for three seconds when key is turned to on.
here's some info.
Principles of Operation
The passive anti-theft system (PATS) uses a specially encoded ignition key. Each encoded ignition key contains a permanently installed electronic device called a transponder. Each transponder contains a unique electronic identification code out of over 18 billion, billion combinations.
The passive anti-theft system (PATS), also known as SecuriLock ®, uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a drive-away theft. This system is known as SecuriLock® in North America, Safeguard® in the U.K., and PATS in continental Europe. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
The SecuriLock® System (PATS) is not compatible with NON-FORD remote start systems, which allow the vehicle to be started from outside the vehicle. These systems may reduce the vehicle security level, and also may cause no-start issues. If equipped, the remote start system must be removed before investigation of PATS-related, no-start issues.
Each encoded ignition key must be programmed into the vehicle's powertrain control module (PCM) before it can be used to start the engine. The correct ignition key is a different design than prior model years. Consult the Rotunda Key Ordering Guide for the correct part number. There are special diagnostic repair procedures described in this section that must be carried out if a new encoded ignition key is necessary.
This system contains a new feature named Unlimited Key Mode. This feature allows a customer to program more than eight keys to the vehicle if they request it. Each vehicle in Unlimited Key Mode is set up with a special unlimited transponder security key. This allows all the customer vehicles to share the same keys, but no other keys from outside can be used to operate the vehicles. For an individual customer, any randomly selected security key is acceptable. Refer to Unlimited Key Mode Programming in Key Programming Switch State Control in this section.
The PATS transceiver module communicates with the encoded ignition key. The module is located behind the steering column shroud and contains an antenna connected to a small electronics module. During each vehicle start sequence, the transceiver module reads the encoded ignition key identification code and sends data to the PCM.
The control functions are contained in the PCM. This module carries out all of the PATS functions, such as receiving the identification code from the encoded ignition key and controlling the engine enable. The PCM initiates the key interrogation sequence when the vehicle ignition switch is turned to RUN or START.
All elements of the PATS must be functional before the engine is allowed to start. If any of the components are not working correctly, the vehicle will not start.
PATS uses a visual theft indicator. The indicator will prove out for three seconds when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START under normal operation. If there is a PATS concern, this indicator will either flash rapidly or glow steadily when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START. The PATS system also flashes the theft indicator every two seconds at ignition OFF to act as a visual deterrent.
PATS will be activated and will disable the vehicle from starting if there is:

You need to spin it as you push it in. Go to advance/autozone and get the rear brake loaner tool. Its part of their loaner tool program and doe snot cost anything after you bring it back.
