I had this problem in my pontiac earlier this year. The first dealership tried to tell me that I had caused this by shoving things under my passenger seat (which was not the case). I went to a second dealership where they informed me that gm is aware of this problem and had links sent out to dealerships to help them deal with this problem. At the time GM had 3 engineers working with dealerships to help diagnose problems. They kept my car for 2 days changing out various parts and putting in new codes and finally they got it working correctly. Since this was a GM problem they covered all costs and gave me a rental free of charge for the 2 days. You definitely need to get this fixed because they told me that had I not fixed it and I'd been in an accident, my airbag would not have deployed. Hope this helps!

Your passenger side temperature door actuator is bad. You can access the actuator by removing the glove box & hush panel. The actuator is on the side of the HVAC box. If you can gain access to the actuator watch the center of the actuator as you change the temp on the control head, if the actuator does not move it is bad, if it does, the door inside the HVAC box is bad. Most likely its the actuator. If you remove the actuator & open it up you will most likely find the large center plastic gear is cracked all the way through. It is held in place by 2 or 3 7/32 screws. Once you replace it, disconnect your battery wait 30 seconds and reconnect it to reset the HVAC control head so it can relearn your actuator positions. It can take up to 5 minutes for the control head to go through it's relearn procedure. You can try resetting the actuator first , but make sure your radio is turned off before you disconnect the battery and if your luck, the actuator may not have any broken parts and the gears may just need to be freed up and lubed. Good luck friend and hope this helps.

I have a 2005 Bonneville and lost my driver seat heater. The typical problem is a broken wire or connection in the seat section of the seat. If you're lucky, it may be a simple break like mine was; under the seat.
I pulled my seat out to work on it. Here's a picture of my broken wire towards the rear:
But, that didn't fix my problem. I also had a bad module. The control module is the same for both seats, so I was able to switch the modules and get my driver seat heater working. Here's a picture of the module. The module cost at the dealer is about $80-100(?)
