Re: air conditioning not working on driver side
Sounds like one of the mixing doors on the drivers side is stuck on the heater side. or the vacuum hose on the mixing door is off of not creating enough vacuum because of a crack in it or possibly coming off

there are 2 one inside the car you have to open the passenger door and where it meets the door there is a panel you have to move it right there the other on is the big black box under the hood by the battery on the passenger side of the car hope this helps : )
There are two solenoids for this system. One is located near the firewall on the passenger side, the other on the driver's side near the radiator. There is a small vacuum line going to each one. Remove this line and connect up another piece of vacuum line and see if you can **** air to pull a vacuum. These parts go bad often. You should not be able to get any air when sucking on the line.
BTW, these parts are about $200.00/ea. Most people just live with the codes because it really only effects emmisions when the engine is cold and it first starts.
If these are good, there is a blower motor located in front of the driver's side front tire. Removing the plastic wheel well liner gets good visibility to it. Make sue the motor/fuse/etc is working. (Although I never hear mine run and I don't have any codes.)
are you not getting any air or hot air??? Here is a laundry list from my memory as to what may be causing causing the problem. 1. Low freon:car will act like this when it needs a freon recharge. Such did not solve my problem, however. 2. Stuck door. There is supposedly a "door" (for want of a better term) inside the heating/cooling system that regulates temperature and/or cabin airflow. The door opens and closes according to the temperature and and dual climate settings selected. If this door gets stuck, it causes hot to blow out drivers side and cool on the passenger side. 3. temperature sensor improperly reset. if the battery gets disconnected and reconnected improperly, it will cause a malfunction in the sensor responible for delivering the proper temp through the a/c system. Disconnect the battery and reconnect with negative terminal first; check all fuses that reference climate control, a/c , heater, etc in manual, remove for 15 seconds, reinsert or replace if necessary. 4. Computer malfunction. The problem may stem from the climate control interface itself (i.e. the thing with all of the temperature knobs and buttons). Replacing this is supposed to fix the problem.
BEFORE TRYING ANY PROCEDURE PLEASE CHECK THE RESPECTIVE PART
I'm going to assume the fan louvers (that direct air from wind shield head to feet ect) are electronically controlled. If that is the case, then a motor may have died. You only have one AC system for the vehicle, so if its cold on one side, then the fault lies within the air ducting system. Maybe a mouse built a nest in there and is blocking air flow?
This sounds like a problem with the one of the temperature door actuator motors. Depending on which side has the problem- Hot on dr. side when you want heat but cool oin pass. side when you want heat. Or vise-versa. These motos are approx. $75 plus 1 1/2 hours labor to install.
