Is this with the air conditioner running? Does this have dual controls? If you have dual controls and this is with A/C running, your system is under charged. There is no easy fix if mode control valve is bad. First step is disable air bag. Second step is completely remove the dash. Good Luck!

SOURCE: 1998 buick park avenue drivers side blows cold, passenger side hot

sounds like the drivers temp door actuator is not working should be located on the drivers side of the air box down by the gas pedal or center dash area.

Check the operation of the drivers blend door actuator. Sounds like its stuck or broken. Does the temp display on the dash flash?

SOURCE: 1996 Buick Park Ave -Hot air on driver side -Cold air pass. side

Behind the glove box you will see the heater box. On top of the heater box you will see a set of wires going to a small controller box that has an arm on it. It is probably not working and you can only by them at the dealer. It is the dual climate controller and cost approx. $100.

SOURCE: cold air on passenger side warm air on drivers side

Actuator motors either get a tear in the rubber or a hose is broken and not letting vacuum assist in its opening.
You can try moving the lever by hand and see if the air gets colder on the bad side.c976077.jpg

Yes. Put a jack under the motor and remove 3 bolts from side of engine and the long center pivot bolt in mount and the 2 bolts that go top down into the frame and loosen the 2 bolts below mount. Jack up the motor until you can separate the mount, leaving the engine side in and removing the frame side. The engine side can be moved out of the way without completely removing.

My 98 Buick Park Avenue has driver and passenger AC settings but the passenger side always blows hot air. Very cold on drivers side. Why??Can't stand the heat even when vent is closed.


Try unplugging the battery for 5 min's to re-sync the dual climate controls. If that fails it is likely that the air temperature control blend door is sticking to in the heated air position, this is either due to the door being warped and sticking inside the duct work or the electric actuator for the door being defective, both are usually replaced.

02Park Ave is blowing warm air on passenger side, but not drivers side nor windshield or heater


Are you able to control the driver side air temperature at the dash registers? If not and you can control the passenger side of the dual climate system then you have an issue with the air temperature control door (moves between the heater core heated air and the AC evaporator cold air stream) deep inside the dash or the electric actuator that moves it or in most cases both.

2011 Ford Flex. Driver side blows heat but the passage side blows cold air. Think it has some to do with the blend door. Assuming it is duck open. Priblem? Where is it located, how to fix it.


It will be the passenger side blend door actuator. Remove the glove box and if you were sitting in the passenger seat it will be by your left knee. Unplug and remove the screws then install new one, it is a little tight inside there though.

1998 buick regal gs heat blows hot on passenger side and cold on the driver side.


Same problem on my 98 Regal GS; remove glove box, locate the blend door actuator, (black odd shaped box with metal "ring"). Remove the box and manually turn the blend door shaft it was attached to. If you get cold air, it's the actuator you removed. About 30-40 dollars.
