    My kia has the same problem. I disconnected the rod from the motor to the adjuster and it now blows hot. Better than no heat.

I had this problem in my car there is a motor under the glove department that turns a damper by a rod if the rod came off the damper could be stuck on cold.

Have you checked the heater tap to see that it is working?If the heater tap is working you can undo the hoses at the firewall and use a garden hose to check that the water is flowing freely through both the heater radiator core and the engine.poke the garden hose up one of the hoses you removed and turn the water on make sure water is flowing freely out the other hose,if clear repeat test on heater radiator core.If heater core is blocked and you have compressed air you can gently flush the core by blowing the water through it.

Check the metal part of the heater core lines at the firewall if you can get to them and see if one side is noticeable colder than the other. At least one of them should be hot or you have a bad thermostat. If both are hot than your hot/cold actuator inside is having a problem

Check your pressures again. Jump the pressure switch and see if this makes the compressor come on. If it does then jump it long enough to get some more freon into the system. This should give switch enough pressure.

Make sure your vacuum is good on the system before you fill.
