Climate control AC issues

2005 F350 Lariat

I had this in to my local diesel mechanic and he wasn't able to figure it out. Started with my AC not wanting to come on in "auto" climate control mode. Just blew warm. They switched it to just AC where you set the fan speed, and the AC worked fine. Said nothing wrong with compressor or AC system itself. As time has gone by, there is no way now to predict when the air will blow cold or on what setting it will work on. Some times works in auto, some times in regular AC mode, and sometimes takes pushing the AC button several times before it will blow cold air.

Am worried the climate control unit is going out. Am I wrong? Any other suggestions?

Maybe the head unit is bad and need to replace that. I have had to on past trucks my family has owned and it worked after that.

Had the EGR replaced a 13000 miles ago with BullitProof upgrade, unless you are talking about a different EGR.

Do you have a part number, price, and repair details? Is this an easy replacement?

I doubt the control module is less than $250 for the Auto air unit
