Is the clutch on the a/c compressor activating?? And the blower motor is a separate issue, might be bad resistor, or a short, or even a bad ground.

Well you might want to check that out. With your engine running and a/c on, open your hood and if your clutch on your compressor is engaging(it should make like a clicking sound every 2-5 seconds or so) if it is you know your compressor is working, then you most likely losing fluid some where, then you need to determine where it's leaking from, fix the leak and recharge.

Testing the actuator with a volt meter. If it has proper voltage, you know it's a faulty blend door actuator.
