more commonly than not the air mix door cable at the cooling unit comes off. You usually can find a small plastic piece on the floor or under the floor mat where it cam apart. I have seen many people fix them with zip ties at the cable cinch on the mix door.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
