    So the last two days when I start the car up, my AC panel is blank and the "mode" button blinks. After a minute or two the display reappears. This morning same thing, but when I started to defrost just the driver side blew hot air. Passenger side was ice cold. Is that a thermostat issue? Any help is appreciated

      TLDR... but PLEASE tell me you've at least turned this into some kind of "too fast too furious" camry?

      Have you ruled out a stolen catalytic converter?

      It’s been happening.

        Not a thermostat issue.
        Find MGC relay in underhood fuse block, Turn ac on, if compressor doesn't kick in TAP the relay, If it kicks in you need a relay, if not it may be low on refrigerant or pressure switch. I could tell you how to test relay when removed if you like.
        Don't try to shotgun a repair, usually costs more than getting it checked
