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.

The passenger side air temp control has a problem. Check connections at switch. If you have a volt meter you can check the switch for continuity or ohms of resistance. No continuity, replace switch.

My heater blows hot on the passenger side, and cold on the drivers side.

gm cars in this era, used two different electronic motor boxes for the hvac vent doors, they are located on both sides of the heater box. one on the passenger, and drivers sides, just under the dash. one on the left/drivers side will control the hot/cold, while the passenger/right side will control the def/vent/floor. the plastic gears inside them get hot and crack, causing them to get stuck in certain positions. only way around this is to replace the left side one.

Driver's side defroster and heater vents blow cold air but the passenger side blows hot. Both sides should blow hot The temp is set any temp and it still does the same thing. It is winter so I don't know...

The doors that open and close in the heater control unit are ran by motors. It sounds like a motor has quit in yours. When turning on the defrosters the motor closes the door to the heat for the floor

1999 cadillac deville d'elegance heater problem

i've been down here too myself, and discovered that the temp control motor, located in the bottom of the glove box, which you can access by clearing all your stuff in in and opening a small door.
you can adjust it manually, and see if it changes, if yes, the switch can be defective, as well as the motor, the switch is the most likely problem.
but adjust it manually first.
