2005 kia amanti--heat blows out only on pass. side. all drivers outlets blow cole in winter...Thank goodness for heated seats!!

If dual heat, most likely the control actuator on the drivers side is bad. If you can get things disconnected enough, you, maybe you can manually push the flapper door to the heat position.

If that works, then you have to find new control or control actuator.

Most of these are vacuum so check vacuum tubes for leaks. I've had mice do a number on such things.

To the wisdom of the auto makers, they have moved to organic rubber in cars. Great food for the vermin

Driver's side heat doesn't work

There is a problem with the drivers side air mix valve. I have seen several problems with these. Sometimes the air mix valve (door) gets stuck and when you try to change it the air mix valve link can pop loose, or sometimes it breaks. Sometimes it also breaks the bellcrank on the door itself. The programmer unit can also be defective. Please refer to the picture below. The thing to do is to remove the lower hush panel and possibly the glove box assembly so you can get a good look at what is going on. Then switch the driver's temperature control from hot to cold and back again to observe the movement of the programmer actuator, the mix valve link, etc. to determine where the malfunction is.

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.

I have 2001 Pontiac Bonneville My heat works but

Your passenger side temperature door actuator is bad. You can access the actuator by removing the glove box & hush panel. The actuator is on the side of the HVAC box. If you can gain access to the actuator watch the center of the actuator as you change the temp on the control head, if the actuator does not move it is bad, if it does, the door inside the HVAC box is bad. Most likely its the actuator. If you remove the actuator & open it up you will most likely find the large center plastic gear is cracked all the way through. It is held in place by 2 or 3 7/32 screws. Once you replace it, disconnect your battery wait 30 seconds and reconnect it to reset the HVAC control head so it can relearn your actuator positions. It can take up to 5 minutes for the control head to go through it's relearn procedure. You can try resetting the actuator first , but make sure your radio is turned off before you disconnect the battery and if your luck, the actuator may not have any broken parts and the gears may just need to be freed up and lubed. Good luck friend and hope this helps.

2001 buick century driver side heat/cool problems

Sounds like a problem with the "Drivers side temp actuator motor".
Each side has a motor that controlls the temp. door inside the dash for the driver or passenger side. These motors are approx. $75, plus 1 hr. labor to install. See more info here...
