Answers from the Automotive Experts

Hello, 

Thank you for writing in. You may be having an issue with one of two things. First you want to make sure the AC system is fully charged with refrigerant so that the system will work correctly to begin with. Secondly, you may need to have the blend doors inspected. These are motorized doors in your car's ventilation system that control the flow of air from the heater, AC, or other settings. Actuators and the blend doors they control can both wear down, break, or become contaminated over time. These may be hard to find and access, so you may want to look into getting help from a local Certified AskPatty.com Female Friendly service center. 

Good luck!
