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.

Have same issue with my xc70 cold to coolish on drivers side and warm to hot on pass... slowly, with driving, pass side becomes cool. Slight swoosh sound from dash attributed to A/C is intermittent. Thought to be kinked tube or puncture? : (

Thoughts?

SOURCE: Drivers side vents blow hot

Hi!!
The Air Blend Door Actuator on the blower housing, under dash, passenger side is stuck or defective. The actuator controls the flow of air from the Heater or AC, depends on your settings, if the door is stuck in between, warm air from the Heater will go thru. In your case, door is open just a little or better said, it is not shut all the way, allowing warm air thru only some of the ducts, that unfortunately, happen to be the driver's side.
Try activating the door by setting he temp control from cool to hot a few times to see if the door actuator will get released, if it does not fix the problem, the actuator will need to be removed for closer inspection and if faulty replaced.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

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.

Driver side heat blows cool air passenger side blows hot air


Hello. The side that is not operating properly has a bad temp door actuator located up under the dash. I am assuming this vehicle has driver/passenger(dual)climate control heat and cold settings. This is a very common problem on these vehicles. Hope you find this information useful!

Driver's side air blowing warm, won't change


Sounds like there is a crack in the vent that leads to the drivers side, and hot air from the engine is leaking through.

Its more then likely the temp door broken or temp door motor broken/stuck. There is 2-3 of these motors under the dash on the side of the evap/heater core box. Some require extensive labor to replace, good luck

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.

Climate control panel


These problems are usually caused by a faulty blend door actuator which controls the position of the air mixing door, and in vehicles with more than one air zone (passenger/driver, front/rear, etc.) there will be a door/actuator for each. These electric blend door actuators are self-calibrating - there is a feedback circuit (wiper type potentiometer) that tells your HVAC control the position of the door. It is not unusual for this potentiometer to wear causing loss of signal at various positions, which then will cause erratic movements of the door (if the circuit fails to open circuit or shorting, the door will default to fully open or closed - i.e. hot or cold air only).

Only cold air on passenger side


I would assume with multiple people having the same problems, there should be a service bulletin on this issue. may want to call dealer with vin # to verify. sounds like a heater control issue under the dash. something i would leave to the experts for repair
