Hi Terry, I'm glad to help. I work on these all the time and there are several things that can happen. (1) If the A/C get out of calibration it can cause this to happen but this is not a very common problem. (2) Low on freon can cause it to cool more on one side then the other. (3) Control Head could be defective and not moving the motor for the passenger side. (4) Most Common Problem found is either and bad motor or a broken A/C Door. Here's something you can try. Put the control head in full cold position, full blower, and on panel mode. NEXT: Key Off, UNPLUG the negative battery cable for 20 seconds. Then plug it back in, at this point the A/C system should go through a calibration test, DO NOT touch any controls until it has come back to panel position and nothing is happening. Then see if the pass door will respond. If not, make sure you have the proper level freon. If the freon is OK and you still have the problem then you have a motor or broken door. I would change the motor first its a lot cheaper then pulling the dash out of the vehicle. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Terry.
Jim lets try something first, here's what I need you to do. Take the negative battery cable off for 20 seconds and before hooking it back up make sure your blower is on HIGH and the control head is in the panel mode (Face Mode) and the temperature is in full cold. Hook the battery back up and start the engine. NOTE: DO NOT touch the control head until it has gone through all the calibration modes and came back to rest at the panel mode and the air flow stays in the panel mode. When this happens the calibration is complete. Then see if it switches to all the other modes. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Jim.
Check to make sure that you have enought freon to engage the compressor, then you will need a flow chart to take you through the rest of the steps necessary to diagnos this problem. The Electrical system manual for Buick is the only one that will have the proper information for you to walk through the steps to dead head it. There is a HVAC programer that is behind the floor heater duck work. It has a numbering system that goes from (2) rows of pins that go 1-16 for terminals.On terminal 5-7 with ignition in run position, you need bat. votage. Terminal 10 & 11 you need 4-5 volts. Neither 10 or 11 should be unplugged just yet since 10 feeds 11 pin. If there isn't any voltage at these pins, check for corrosion on the pins theirself, or for the pin that it may have slipped back out of the connector. Good luck.

Apart from the fuse box in the engine bay there is a fuse repository behind the coin alcove underneath the boot release. Fuse 3 for the lighter (I think) was blown. I replaced it and now the climate control console responds and the display lights up.
