There are "mode doors" in the dash that direct where the air flows based on what you select via the dash controls. (there's also a "temperature blend door" inside the HVAC box that directs incoming air either across the heater core or AC evap coil.) You may have a stuck mode door, a common failing with them is the actuator, a small module that contains a simple electric motor and gears to move the door. The challenge is to determine which door is faulty, then how to get to it inside the dash - removing the glove box and/or passenger air bag can help in that regard.
