The air in our nitro went out a few years ago but no big deal. Went to have it fixed last fall, had a part in the dashboard replaced only to find out that it was the compressor. Can’t afford the compressor right now but when they replaced the piece the heat quit working so we removed the actuator under the steering wheel and had heat. (Thought getting a new one would fix this) bought the new actuator and replaced it only to not have heat again. Everything shows it’s working until it’s plugged together and the actuator isn’t turning....... please help!

Welcome to the forum @Confused2021. When you have a chance, head over to the Newbie Section (<click this) and say "Hi".
Tell us a little about yourself and your ride.
That way we can welcome you all proper like.

Actuators are not plug and play.
If one is removed the new one has to be put back in the exact orientation(position of open/closed) as the old one was removed.
If this is not done correctly you will need to have it calibrated by a dealer.
Or Caution: DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! you can remove the actuator, then try to manually rotate the actuator in to different positions and hope you get it in the correct position.

The actuator was replaced by someone with many years of experience but he can’t figure out why it’s not working when it’s all connected together.

Has to be in correct position, or reprogrammed.
