Question about 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 2WD
GM has a known problem with the electric actuators that operate the blend and temperature doors in the HVAC system. There are 4 or 5 of these in the typical system. Any can start sticking or binding and cause this problem. Sometimes they can be cleaned, or they might need to be replaced. Sometimes resetting the HVAC system controller by disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes, then reconnecting it, will correct the problem.

I agree, these vehicles have a problem with the blend doors and since the accuators hit the door when it opens and closes, it breaks the doors. and it's a huge job to replace them.

I have the same problem exactly, if i turn off the ignition and then turn it back on it begins blowing cold air again. I would like to know what the problen is as it sounds like it is not unique to just my vehicle.
