Hi ,when you peak under the dash which side are you looking at to determine the selector cable isn't moving,thanks for your patience.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The drivers side...i can reach in there and manually move it to the desired setting..but the control knob does doesnt move the cable...the cable cover is yellow...on the passenger side the temperature setting cable moves fine

Hi,to remove the mode panel is a pretty big job,maybe you can see first what is causing the problem by removing the radio and vent first,to remove the radio pry the panel that surrounds it off ,I use a plastic trim panel knife so no damage occurs.The radio is held in with 4 screws,the vent with 2 ,once removed you can get a good look at the mode control
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
You mean the small black trim that is around the radio and vents....not the silver trim that surrounds that?
Expert:  tamaz replied 2 years ago.
Yes the silver plastic trim,the vents come out with it
