Default A/C heat defrost is all jacked up

Just got my 2006 ram yesterday and I love it, however last night my windows iced over and I found out only the passenger side defrost works...after noticing this I relized that the ac and heat hardly put out air when on full speed. They get hot and cold just don't put out much out of the vents. Any ideas what this could be? Also is this a usual problem for the trucks?

I'll bet my hat you have a broken recirc door. Remove the glove box and with the key on, change the settings from fresh air to recirculate. If you don't see the door moving, you've found your problem.

You can buy a replacement door at the dealership, my 2003 came with a door, new box, new motor as a unit. you can install the unit or pull the new door out and use it. Either way, it is a heck of a job.

Did you "open" or "remove" the glove box? It needs to be removed.

I removed the glovebox, couldn't see the door because it wasn't there haha broke off, Took it out from underneath. Pretty easy fix, don't have the recirculate option anymore but everything else works perfect now
