A/C on the drivers side only will start blowing hot air. I have to turn the vehicle off and then on again to restart the cool air blowing. It may stay cool for hours or 2 mins. before it begins blowing hot air again. Sometimes it begins blowing cool air again on its own.
AC/Heat both run but when I have either one set to run high, the outcome is very limited as though something is restricting it from exiting fully from the vents.
