2003 Chevy Impala - air cold on driver/hot on passenger

I have a 2003 Chevy Impala with about 76,000 miles on it. Off and on I have noticed that when I have the vent (outside air) on OR the AC on, that it blows normal (cold) on the driver's side, however; it blows hot, (REALLY hot at times!) on the passenger side. It has ALSO been known to blow cold on the passenger's side when the heat is on, while the driver's side, again, is normal (hot). There is really no rhyme or reason as to how and when this happens; it's just got a mind of it's own! What needs to be done to repair this? Is it an easy repair? If I have to go to a Chevy Dealer, do you have an estimate as to what it might cost? I'm getting ready to take a long road trip alone and want this to be working properly for me. Thanks for any help you can give!

I agree with the 2 solutions provided. The door actuator module on the right side air duct is bad. They are very expensive $200 to $300 each.

Gets hot on passenger side stays cold on drivers side on 2004 chevy impala


Possible that the vent is blocked if you meant that the car is not cooling with the AC. If so check the flow of air on the vent , remove and clean the vent.
However if there is heat coming in to the passenger side then the engine room insulation can be open or there is a possible leak from the engine room that allows hot air to flow into the passenger side than the driver side.
I hope this was what you meant, if not clarify once again.

Just had this happen today to my 2007 silverado heat on the right side cold air on the left side. After engine was off 15 minutes and restarted heat was on both sides. I'm guessing a relay failed to open door to allow the heat to flow thus blowing cold air.will monitor diligently for a while.

2005 Chevy Impala driver's side heat blows cold, but works on passenger side. Was told a vent is probably not opening to allow for the heat to get to the driver's side? Where can I locate this vent?


First....buy a drivers side air flow actuator at a auto parts place for dual zone heating/cooling.
(NAPA etc will have it.....or the dealer)
Open the glove compartment.....all the way....you may have to take the screws out at the bottom......look in at the heater assembly....look over to the left....you will see the two air flow actuators.
Look at the part you have and match it to the part on the heater assembly.
The actuator that is closest to the engine is the drivers side control.
Replace it.
Try your controls and check for heat and cooling on both sides.
The stepper motor in these actuators goes bad on quite a few...but over look that.....you have a great car,good for many miles of trouble free driving.
