AC actuator module controls air blend door, and vent system. Probably is bad. As long as your temperature gauge is reading around 200 deg. if not it would be the thermostat.

Check your coolant level first. It's probably low.

The blower is likely a failed resistor in the heat duct. That's a separate issue from the lack of heat. Check your coolant level first. If its low fill it up and the problem will likely go away.
