Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Just in case you didnt know ( and maybe you do know ) on this model there is a drivers side air mix actuator to control the drivers air temp and then there is a passenger side air mix actuator to control the passenger side air temp.If the passenger side was not checked to see if it is moving properly this needs done as a faulty air mix actuator for the passenger side is most common needing replaced.If this was already checked let me know.
