The temperature actuator has gone bad. You will need to replace and have it recalibrated. You could try and disconnect the battery for a few hours and see if it will reset it's self. But you will be in the same boat before too long. And will eventually need to replace it.

SOURCE: how to replace 2000 buick century temperature actuator

First, what is the problem that you need to replace the actuator? Is the air flow from the vents not changing? If this is the problem, the actuator is inside the venting behind the control panel and is difficult to get to but is possible. Follow the hoses on back of temp controls to the actuator. There should be 2 small bolt screws to remove to change out actuator.
If this is for something else, let me know

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

To Jeff Turcotte, this is Lisa McCurry. my question is my 2001 buick century blows warm air on drivers side and cold air on passenger side, can you tell me where the acutator is located.


Lisa. Keep all your followups in the original question by clicking COMMENT under the person you are talking to. That way, they get a notification.

Actuators are always to the left and right of the centre unit. Google 'Buick Centry blend door actuator', and look at the videos.

1995 Buick Century blowing hot air.


A mechanic would check the system with a set of pressure gauges. If the compressor is running, the low side would read around 30psi and the high side would be around 250psi. That is how you know if the system is full of freon or not.
You may have to get a professional diagnosis to proceed. If you replace the compressor, the accumulator needs to be replaced and a vac pump is used to pull all of the air out before the freon is added.

The ac vent blows out hot air on the drivers side ,and the passenger side vent blows out cold air what could cause this problem on my 2001 buick century


its probably the actuator. its usually located under the dash in the center. you might be able to get to it by removing the glove box and looking to the drivers side. its a black box that has a wire connector on it. switch your heater control from hot to cold and you should here it click. replace it and i bet your problem is solved

I have a 1998 Buick Century has 2 zone heating Driver side works, pasinger side blows cold air


It sounds like you have either a defective passenger blend air door actuator or a broken passenger blend air door.

Sometimes the actuators just get stuck. Try turning the passenger control to full COLD and wait about 1 minute. Then turn it to full HOT and see if it changes. I have done this with several GM vehicles and I often get a "POP" noise when I change it back to HOT and everything starts working again. I have also had some luck getting stuck doors loose by removing the hush panel from under the dash and "thumping" on the A/C housing with my fist.

If none of this works, you will have to remove the dash to fix it.

My ac when on blows hot on passenger and cold on driver,we have already changed compressor,dryer,cabin filter,actuator,freon,and cleaned the lines


does this car have dual temp controls so the temp can be different then what the other side is set at.if so you could have a temp door motor for the passenger side that is not working and needs replacing.if the a/c blew cold on the drivers side then you have done alot of unnecessary work and expense as this should have told you the a/c system was working okay as far as what you have replaced.check to see if the air temp door(motor) is the problem for the passenger side.
