1998 buick park avenue drivers side blows cold, passenger side hot

My 1998 Park Avenue has climate control for the passenger side only. It blows hot air on passenger side but only cold on driver's side when heat is on. Both heater hose's under the hood are hot when touched. I want to know where to find the vent door under the dash for the driver's side. Checked the fuses and all were good. If not a vent door, where can i check for heat flow?

Sounds like the drivers temp door actuator is not working should be located on the drivers side of the air box down by the gas pedal or center dash area.

these vehicles are equiped with a duel zone HVAC system , so the passengers side needs to be tuned in on the climate control console to achieve desired tempretures.

Behind the glove box you will see the heater box. On top of the heater box you will see a set of wires going to a small controller box that has an arm on it. It is probably not working and you can only by them at the dealer. It is the dual climate controller and cost approx. $100.
