    First you need to repair the blend door malfunction. Best way to check its operation is to use a data streaming scan tool and see if the door is moving properly, then worry abut the aux blower motor.
    Have a good shop with a Climate Control capable scanner inspect your system

    thanks for the answer, thats what i was thinking of doing, but this is new ground for me to cover , i'm a collision tech. i have access to a tech 2 , i work at a big dealership but dont really have 85.00/hr to spend on a missed diagnosis, i own a snap on solus scanner , i'm going to see if it works, it's a bi-directional scanner.but mostly use it for abs and air bag codes
