Question about Cadillac DeVille
Replaced two vacuum hoses that were dry rotted. The AC now blows into the cabin and out of defrost mode, but the parking brake will still not auto release.
Cable is old and rusted you need to oil it at the brakes end of it and work it back and forth till it frees up.

The temperature blend door on the driver's side might be broken or stuck. Also, if this vehicle does not have the correct amount of refrigerant, it will do what you are describing.

Sounds like a Blend door issue, but could be the controller switch, Test ALL modes of operation to see what works and what does not. That should narrow it down a bit. The Blend doors are flap/ doors that regulate air flow, newer vehicles are plastic - electric assemblies ...prone to failure. Any clicking or thumping noises during switching modes and on-off suggest a bad Blend door. Hope that helps...good luck

SOURCE: 99 STS AC is blowing hot air
I had the same problem but it was blowing hot air on the passenger side of the car. I assume you have the dual zone controls that I have as well. The problem is most likely the damper that controls the flow of hot and cold air into the car. The motorized component of the damper is most likely not working and its stuck in the hot air position.
I had mine replaced by a repair shop so I cant tell you how to replace it but it may be something that you can do if you have the time and patience to work on it.

Could be a vacuum line but have had this problem myself. The problem is most likely the "blend" air door behind the dash. This door operates via vacuum to slightly open or close allowing heated air from the heater core to mix with a/c air in the case of the passenger operating the individula comfort control button on the passenger arm rest. When the passenger wants their side a little warmer than the driver the door opens and warm air mixes in. The fix is not good. Several thousand dollars for dealer fix. The dash must be removed(and probably drivers door). My fix was to put a shut off valve on the heater hose going into the heater core so that I can shut off coolant to the core in summer temperatures. In winter I turn it back on for heater operation. Hope it helps.
