greetings,

This has a water control valve(heater control valve). If no heat this is what you want. Check to see if it tries to move when you switch to heat.

Water Shut Valve Controller Continuity Check


CAUTION: When the motor stops, disconnect battery cable.

I already checked those and everything works.................. I know for sure it's the blend door that doesn't work.............. Do you have any instructions on how to remove that part?
Expert:  Ironmike replied 7 years ago.

the blend air door is controlled by cables and is on the drivers side. I would make sure a cable has not disconnected or the control assembly is not broken. The only electric actuator is for out side fresh air mix.

hope these pics help.
