Does the AC compressor turn on when the AC is turned on?
How did you check the EVAP temp sensor?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Compressor kicks on with the Switch. I can hear it. Vent on far driver side is cool. Center console is left side warm. Right side hot. Right side vent is hot. Does not have dual climate.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 1 year ago.

The system has a Freon leak. When the system charge is low, you will get uneven temperature from the dash vents. You will need to have the AC system tested for leaks.

How much can it cost to fix this issue? Worst case.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 1 year ago.

Worst case would be the evaporator which the dash has to be removed to replace it. As for the cost, probably $800.
