If you have ACC, it would be worth checking the cabin air sensoe...behind the plastic grill next to the steering wheel. These are prone to failure, although it could just be clogged up with dust and hair etc (it draws air from the cabin past a thermistor). The cap should just pop off.

Ylee, see if you're getting heat. If so, it could be the mixer door flap isn't working because the clip that holds the wire pull to the lever arm has fallen off. The mixer door opens and closes a duct according to whether heat or cooling is required.

OK, I was going to wait 'til you checked whether you're getting heat, but I'll give you the news now. You'll have to take the cover to the aquarium off. The lever you'll be looking for is buried deep within the bowels of the heater blower motor, evaporator box area. Make sure you have a good powerful spotlight because the lever arm you looking for is in a really dark and confined area. Anyway, there should be a heavy gauge wire, about the gauge of the bottom string of a guitar, barely visible in there. If it's not attached to a black plastic arm (again, hard to see because just about everything in that area is black), then that's your problem.
