Question about 2009 Toyota Venza

1 Answer

Dual-Zone AC Problem

When the AC is set to "LO", regardless if it is in "Auto" climate control mode or not, and the temperature outside is 85+ degrees, the driver's side AC system blows warm air while the passenger side blows freezing cold air. After the car warms up and is driven approximately 40 miles, the driver's side gets cold, but not AS cold AS the passenger side. What could cause this problem, a temp sensor or a switching mechanism?

My guess is that one of the hose's has a leak and needs to be replaced. A mechanic can run some tests to check if that's the case. Best of luck.

This is Caused By the Grease in the Spindle Bearings Getting frozen. Get it Greased up really Well and you Might need to Repack the Bearings on this side to Stop this and Stop further Damage to the Spindle.

If the driver's blend door actuator has failed completely, or the wiring to it is damaged, you will not hear any clicking. Check for appropriate voltage at the blend door actuator, and determine from there if it's the actuator or the control unit.

First thing that started the outside temperature reading would flicker and finally settled to the steady reading. Then we started getting cold air on the passenger side and warm air on the driver side. ...


That is two separate problems. The "Flickering" of the outside temperature thermometer might be normal to some extent. Sometimes, the voltage from the sensor is at a point where it could be say, 31 degrees F or 32 degrees F. The display may flicker back and forth between 31 and 32 very rapidly until the voltage changes just enough to go make it go solid one way or the other. It probably does this all the time, but you didn't notice until you were paying attention to the temperature problems inside the car. (One actually has absolutely nothing to do with the other.)

The cracking and popping noises you are hearing from the temperature door and the difference between the temperature on the driver's side and the passenger side are the same problem. Apparently, you have dual zone climate control. This is usually caused by one of the temperature doors sticking and either stripping the gears inside the door control actuator or breaking the door itself. If you have both sides set at "HOT", the side that is cold is your problem-child. This will usually also set a fault code in your climate control module and may make your climate control display flash. (but it doesn't always flash when there is a code present)

WHen we use the auto car starter, it blows cold air, and a lot of it. Its nearing the winter here in New England and I need to know how to set up the starter to blow warm air. Any ideas?


Start the vehcle and let it warm up then set all the controls to heater? Then turn off the car. Use the remote start to start the vehicle and check the controls are still set to heat mode.

A/C comes on every time I start vehicle. Not in auto mode. Even when dual climate knobs are turned to high, A/C still comes on. Why ???


Check to see that you have not depressed the AC on button its a small push in button bellow climate controls also on your temp setting turn it to the far right this is the warmest setting this will prevent auto kick in to the AC you may also turn blower knob to off This position turns off the blower motor and outside air
will not pass through any outlets.

Ac blows out cold on dravers side hot on passenger side


If the vehicle has dual zone climate control, either the air mix door is broken or the motor that controls it is broken. It may also have the vacuum control system, which could mean a loose vac line or a broken diaphram. If its not a dual zone, then the air should be the same temp both sides as the mix door is one piece. It sounds like a mode door controller is bad, either case.

Volvo v50 2005 climate control puts out heat on driver's side and windshield when AC is on or temperature control is at low. Passenger side puts out cold air. Both sides of climate control are set at low.


I had the same problem. AC computer forgot where the adjustment flaps are.
- Start the car.
- Press Auto button on the AC (if you have this option)
- Increase fan speed (make shure it is not on minimmal setting)
- Decrease the temperature setting to the minimum -> "Lo"
- Wait about 10-20 seconds
- increase the temperature to the maximum -> "Hi"
- Wait about 10-20 seconds
- Set the temperature that you like.

With this procedure you force the AC to move the temperature regulating flaps to go to both end-positions and motors get calibrated again.


If this does not help, there must be a bad contact somewhere or the fpals may get stuck. -> repair.

Air conditioning blowing hot air


ok could be one of 3 things. 1 you may be out of freon. (proly spelt that wrong) 2. compresser could be bad. 3 the clutch on your compresser might not be engaging. when trucks running turn ac on and see if the front of your compresser spins or not. if it does clutch is good. but it could be that your compresser is still bad. either way i recomend you go for freon and start there. when they fill it they will tell you for sure wether or not your compresser is bad.

I have a 2004 GMC Yukon and the dual climate zone control in the front has issues. The passenger side works to order and the drivers side blows hot air when the ac is on. Is there a temp sensor out...


Remove the Positive Battery Terminal, leave the Negative Terminal connected.  Wait 30 minutes.  Attach the Positive Terminal.  Verify temperature settings is around 70 degrees.  This procedure has been known to resolve computer settings.
