temp switches from cold to hot &heather only heats when it wants
All three climate zones (driver, front passenger, and rear) all blow hot air when the AC is on, and cold air when heat is on. It does not do this all the time, and switches back and forth from correct temp, to opposite. Also, the driver heated seat will come on at max temp at random times.
Heat or air don't blow out on the floor
