That is a double-cross flow system,have you had the system flushed out lately, have you had your thermostat checked, it could be sticking shut, the radiator could itself be plugged,have you ever used any type of cooling system sealer?, as in a pour in or disolvable type sealer,these new radiators have very small passages and can plug very easily after using these types of sealant

    What is difference between on an auto on thermostate

    I'm not sure exactly how this applies specifically in a car, but on a home heating and cooling (air conditioning) thermostat, it is often associated with the fan or blower setting.

    If for a system fan:

    "Auto On" setting in a heating / cooling system would start the fan when the temperature climbed above or dropped below the setting you on the thermostat and start the heat or cooling source. Once the thermometer indicates the desired temperature had been reached, the heating / cooling source would be stopped and the fan would turn off.

    "On" would run the fan all the time, regardless if the thermostat tired to start the heat or cooling source. This would result in constant circulation of the air in the space(s) and tend to keep warm or cool spots (rooms) from being created.

    Why is it blowing warm on and off on the driver side and blowing cool on the passenger side?

    Here's is a little background and a couple of thoughts. Turning to the background, first. The heater/air conditioner system in your 02 uses the same set of ducts located in the instrument panel. In turn, those ducts are linked to what can be considered miniature version of the cooling system in the engine compartment (yes, this is a greatly simplified version). The whole system, in fact, is run off the main heater/ac system, however, it has a separate series of controls so that it can function properly.

    When you dial a temperature, a signal is sent to the heater/cooling system telling the system to open a series of baffles, directing a flow of heated or cooled anti-freeze/coolant to the proper "radiator" behind the face of the instrument panel. In turn, the fan system activates a series of doors behind the instrument panel so that the flow of air is directed through the "radiator" and into the passenger compartment. This is essentially the heater/cooling system work.

    Now, you say that the driver's side is hot, while the passenger side is cool. What has happened is that the flow of heated coolant that is supposed to heat the passenger side of the duct system is blocked. Since there is no heat to warm the air that is flowing past the fins of the "radiator," the flowing air remains cool to cold, depending on the weather and ambient temperature. The result is that one side of the car remains cool. And, since the other side of the "radiator" is normal and the air is heated, it is warmed.

    That is the most likely explanation for this.

    Another possibility is that the baffles themselves are stuck and the coolant that is supposed to be directed to the passenger side is not being directed their.

    Either way, your technician has some work ahead.

    After a front end collision the lights in my consel as well as my dome light and my floor heat no longer work

    Lighting may be as simple as a fuse, or may even have the switch in the off position. As far as floor heat, is heat coming out of the upper ducts? If not, the shop may not have properly filled your cooling system since your heater works by using the heated coolant. Your cooling system requires purging of captured air within the system whenever the system is drained. If you have heat from upper ducts and not the lowers, the doors built into the heating/cooling system are not working properly. A severe collision may have broken some of the plastic casing of the system causing a mechanical interference of moving parts, or knocked a wire connection loose that controls the doors. Those are the items to visually check. Otherwise it's a process of elimination via testing of the electronics.
