Yeah, I've already taken the motor out to clean it. Didn't help a bit
What about code 15? Faulty wiring somewhere, or is the high pressure sensor
on its last legs?

It has been years since I had to mess with this system, but I would
have sworn that code 07 was bogus. There is a code (0?) that comes up
concerning a temperature sensor I think, that is not installed until
later model years.
Anyway, based on your symptoms and the fault code, it looks like your
electric motor for the hot/cold air blend flap is stuck or dead. This
part is under the rain shield in the engine compartment. It is not
all that hard to replace, and the part is common enough to be found at
a good auto parts store.
There is a built in diagnostic mode where you can make the flap move.
That should prove it to you.
