Question climate control only blows on windscreen

Hi all

1st post! Have a December 2008 9-3 saloon linear TID1.9.

So, had a problem with the drivers window not going all the way up, so I disconnected/reconnected the connector in the door hinge.

Sorted the window.

HOWEVER, I now have another problem which may or may not be related.

When I have the ACC on, the air only blows through the windscreen vents....

Now, I turn off auto, and select the button for front vents, and that works perfectly, but of course, lose climate control.

At least I know there is nothing wrong with the fans.

Do I need to reset the system or something to get the air to blow out of all vents?

Thanks in advance!!

DO you have the temp adjusted to LOW?
If yes, adjust it a reasonable temp number.

Also disconnect for 1 min the negative battery post to reset the system.

OK, so an update:

* When on cool / cold, air comes from all vents as expected
* When on warm (23 degress Plus), onl;y blows through windscreen vents
* Have disconnected battery for a few minutes and did not help
* Tried the ACC reset trick by pressing AC and off button at once, but
* Nothign happens (do not have digital display on ACC on my car)

Really annoying me now.
