SOURCE: Dual Temperature controls inside - 2002 lincoln ls

The problem is most likely a bad dual climate control valve. This component is located on the right side near the radiator under the hood. It will have several coolant hoses hooked to it and 2 silver cylinders protruding from it. You can clamp off the heater hoses at the heater core and see if both sides cool then and this will tell you that the valve is letting coolant thru when it shouldn't be.

This will narrow it down to either the valve or the control head inside the car,or wiring in between them. The only way to narrow it down further is if you have a scan tool that could access the climate control data. Have seen several of these valves cause this concern and have only seen one control head cause it.

SOURCE: 1986 Mercedes 300e The air conditioner vents blow

All the blend doors and vents are controlled by vauum. If you look in the rear firewall behind the brake master cylinder you will see a vacuum check valve with lines entering the cabin of the vehicle. The yellow colored ones are for your central locking,the green for a/c system, and red for your heater/water valve,clear for your source. Try isolating your vac. systems by unplugging lines and capping them off. Any leak in either system can adversly affect another system. So isolate your leak and then you will have to test your actuaters in the leaky system. If you unplug the red line and cap it off-the water will stop entering your heater core.

SOURCE: 2005 chevy 2500hd duramax driver side vents blow hot air

It sounds like the HVAC head needs to be recalibrated, most likely when you unhooked the battteries you lost the memory to the control head, it's in a default position/state.

SOURCE: Air conditioner blows hot air after 30 seconds on

I have had this problem. I am not a mechanic...so to correct the issue temporarily, I simply turn off the car and restart. This has worked everytime for me. In extreme cases, I think you can also remove the AC fuse and start the car, which will also reset the computer. I also think that by taking the climate control off the "AUTO" setting has worked in the past.

Sounds like the vent control motor is bad. It controls how much hot water flows through the heater core. OR the heater core for that side is clogged

A/c turns on but it blows hot air .it worked fine just one day before and then it stop.the compresor does turn on but it blows hot.


Anything to do with A/C not working is either
Belt, a/c/clutch,broken feed wire or fuse OR your out of GAS its called R12 i think
Take to Aircon station and they can fill if need be in 1/2 hour.
Have a goodday
