Floor heat and vent seem ok. When set on defrost only very little air from defrost,but still comes out of floor vent strong.

It seems that what every setting it's on it only comes out the defrost for the most part.

the HOLD light on the dash comes on ramdily

What do I do next to get it to pass smog test

Check engine light came on, took to dealer, they said they had the P0711 code, A/T temperature sensor, and it needed replacing(there was a bulletin out for this part). They estimated the cost at around $700. They reset the check engine light, so it is off. If I take it to another shop, can they check for the code and confirm it after the dealer reset it? The light came on after the car was parked all day, and I do not see any change in how the vehicle is running. Any ideas or suggestions on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

My A/C no longer comes on. The lights on the dials come on and everything else electrical seems to be working. I checked the fuses and they appear to be ok. Occasionally for no reason driving down the road it might come back on, but as soon as I shut the car off it happens again.
