I'll try rotating the temp knob in both direction several times.
Didn't think that a leaf could get in there, though there's no cabin filter.
The vehicle is a 2001 "Limited" model, which didn't come with a cabin filter.
As a result, a few years ago, we had to have the entire dash taken apart while on vacation.
We were traveling South, and when we got to Alabama, the A/C wouldn't work worth a diddle.
Luckily, there was a Toyota dealer on our route ... and we had to spend a night in a motel while it was diagnosed.
At first, when the tech inserted a fiber-optic probe, they thought it was an animal nest ( evidently, common in the area ).
However, it turned out that the problem had developed at home, entirely because of the lack of a cabin air filter.
We had a neighbor with a huge Cottonwood tree in their back yard.
Over the years, enough of the "cotton" had been sucked inside that the evaporator was clogged with the stuff.
It cost a bundle to get it removed, blown out, and reinstalled.
Thanks for the tips.
We'll see whether there's any change when we manipulate the temperature control.
