Thank you very much for taking the time to look at my post, I have been following your posts and already learned a lot.
To your questions, this is a new car for my daughter, owned it just over a month and just love it. So no idea on the cars history, repairs or accidents, first time using the heater.
When I bought it I had a major engine overhaul since it was not running smoothly. Changed all the plugs, cables, changed the timing belts, tensioners, pulleys, water pump, fuel injection kit and knock sensor. It runs great now.
I actually have all your diagrams from a different post where people were complaining that when they pressed the recirculating button they would hear a clicking sound. Solution was to locate and replace the actuator arm that opens and closes the entrance to outside air.
I think that my scenario is different because the recirculating button does not come on and no sound is made. Fuses #15,20,21 are all ok, #19 main fan relay is also ok, switched it with a known working #17 defroster relay. According to the schematics I downloaded there should be a #13 blower relay above the fuse panel, unable to locate in such cramped place, but does it matter if the blower works flawlessly ?
What concerns me is that I do not see power at the recirculating switch, do I need to locate the harness to #12 actuator mode and see if it is connected ?
Let me expand on the cold air blowing at the passenger side. When I have my hand on the round blower-squirrel cage, to the left on same housing are 4-5 1" square slots where the cold air is blowing out of. THIS IS THE ONLY spot that I get the cold air.
Further to the left some more is a larger rectangular outlet that gives me warm air. Once again I can still get warm air from the vents and defrost even as the cold air blows from the bottom
