SOURCE: the cars climate control running hot on the passenger side

I had the same issue, where the driver side blew hot and passenger side cold. Took it to the dealer and they charge me 6oo dollars to change the air actuator value. This value (next to radiator) is what controls the coolant flow for the dual climate control.

After having this done and looking at the change, I became more than a bit
Agitated.... A thought occurred to me that a radiator flush would have resolved the issue and saved me 600 dollars. What lead me to that conclusion are two things

1) Mechanic said when he clamped of the other side of he value the issue resolved itself meaning the value was not bad.
2) This issue only happen after I turned on the heater for the first time this season...

SOURCE: passenger side blows hot air when front control set to Air

you cant adjust it ,this requires the dealers computer to re set it,or a phyiscal control has packed up like a vacumn pipe has split where it pushes onto the valve that controls the flap in the heater unit.

Why does 1 side of dash blow hot and the other cold when ac is on with the dual climate control?


Check the actuator motor on the heater it directs the air into the vents. There is probably two of them be sure to check both. The motor makes the vents move and again directs the air where you want. Hope this helps.

I have a 1993 dakota, the climate control only blows though the window area. I cannot get air flow to move from the window to any other setting, floor or dash. Wondering what the issue may be and how to...


wakow4u, What you have to do is look for a vacuum line that comes from the engine and enters the passenger compartment through the firewall. This vacuum line controls the climate control. A small rubber hose that fits tightly will suffice as a good and quick repair. Good luck with this.

I have a 1997 Pontiac Gran Prix and the air conditioner is full blast on the passenger side and on the drivers side is hot air?


I think these cars have dual climate control. Basically, the driver and passenger can set their own climate. Some like it hotter than others, is the thinking. If this is the case, you need a new climate control module. If not, I am at a complete loss.

Good luck!

1995 Lesabre blows hot on drivers side, cold on passenger side


THIS IS A GUESS. Both sides probabley have "mix" dampers that regulate temp by mixing hot and cold air to make you comfortable. Passenger side must not work properly, stepper motor? Dirty actuator? Temp sensor on passenger not working? Don't honestly know but I'm not sure a do it yourselfer could figure it out. Sounds complicated.
