I have a 2004 monte carlo and my driver side heat does not work it blows out cold air even when the control switch is on the heat my passenger side works fine

Hello and welcome. this is caused by a bad temp door actuator for the drivers temp door. you will need to replace the drivers temp door actuator. this is a electric motor that moves the temp door from cold to hot and hot to cold

AC blows hot air on the driver side and cold air on the passenger side

You may have a bad temperature door actuator motor on the drivers side. The actuator is what moves the temperature blend door and when it fails it usually moves the door all the way to the "hot" position. Sometimes if you shut the vehicle off for a bit then restart it the system will work fine for a while then the actuator will again swing the door all the way open or shut. I've replaced several of these actuators [both drivers side and passenger side] for similar problems.

Heater only works on passenger side.

there is a motor actuator that moves these doors for hot and cold, two separate ones for either side. the motor unit for drivers side is no good and needs new one. replace this and all will be good.

One side air blows cold one side blows hot

GM has a known problem with the electric actuators that operate the blend and temperature doors in the HVAC system. There are 4 or 5 of these in the typical system. Any can start sticking or binding and cause this problem. Sometimes they can be cleaned, or they might need to be replaced. Sometimes resetting the HVAC system controller by disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes, then reconnecting it, will correct the problem.

2004 Chevy Silverado AC is blowing warm air on passenger side.

You have dual zones that are controlled by temperature actuators the passenger side has lost its memory or has gone bad you can put it in self programming by disconnecting the battery for ten minutes then hook it back up start the truck turn the temperature control on but do not touch any other controls let it go thru the self programming for about 6 to 7 minutes then select your temperature you want if it still does not work properly you may have a bad actuator or a bad connection at the actuator

A/C and Heat Driver Side Intermittent Problem

You will need to replace your driver side temp actuator. It is most likely sticking or over travelling. It is located under the dash directly below the a/c control head. It is bolted to the a/c box upside down with two small bolts. Let me know if i can help more.
