Default Intrigue heater controls

My brother's '99 intrigue heater controls are not working. It has the electronic controls and no matter what setting they are on, air blows out all of the vents. It didn't really matter in the summer, but since winter is fast approaching, he will need to use the defrost. Also when you change the temperature, you have to cycle the key a couple times before the temp will change. I am thinking it is the blend door, but just wanted to be reassured before my parents start throwing money at it.

Also will I have to pull apart the whole dash to replace the blend door if that is what it is?

Anyone? Also, when I select a different vent zone i.e from feet to defrost, I hear a clicking noise above the passenger footwell, but nothing else happens other than clicking.

Will I have to go the same route as tsaguy and pull apart the whole dash to start finding/replacing multiple actuators?

sounds like your blend door, if thats what it called. If there is a clicking noise but no action, that could be due to a slipping gear within the actuator.

Didn't Intrigue's have problems with the control unit?

Is it Manual or Auto Climate?

Auto climate. I have no idea on the problems. I got the car from my 90 year old great great uncle. The thing only has 94k on it.
