Have the freon level checked in the A\C system.

Clarification needed. Are you indicating the AC DOES work well but when you turn the AC OFF...you are felling hot air coming out of the ac outlets??

That is right AC is working fine , but when AC is off I feel hot air coming from the Ac ducts even when the heater is off .

AC outlets

Ok.....understood. Now.....if you have air coming out of AC outlets when the ac is off, I have to assume your blower motor is still running and you are pulling hot air from either inside the car(recirc) or from outside the car. Turn the knob for the blower motor to OFF. Turn all the other control knobs counter clockwise and see what happens.

I did that and still hot air is coming so now I am really puzzled if the fan is off how can be possible that hot air still coming out ?

Well.....the only way I can imagine air coming out of the ductwork with the AC/Heating system OFF is when you are driving the vehicle....and....the recerc function is off. If the recirc/vent door is not functioning properly...this vehicle could allow outside air to flow into the car when the vehicle is in motion. When you operate the blower motor function...are you sure the blower motor is NOT running when you turn it off? You might want to double check the operation of this system by referencing the Owner's Manual. We might be chasing a "normal" condition.

Had this problem before blower motor switch off but still blowing low turned out to be a bad blower motor switch.

Before replacing switch when you get to it try spraying some WD40 on switch maybe be just sticking.
