Check the voltage to the actuator, if your not getting 12-14 volts you may have to clean your connections, however if you have proper voltage, then your actuator is getting weak and needs replacing

Driver side blowing hot air passenger side blowing cold air


I'm having the same problem except on mine it's the driver's side that's blowing cold. Do you have the pictures in a finer resolution? I can't make them out and when I zoom, they are too grainy. Does the replacement require removing the dashboard? What's the general cost of the acuators? Are they readily available at like NAPA or other parts stores?

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe..not blowing hot air on driver side..only on the passenger side..and the back work properly...


I am having the exact same problem in my 04 tahoe. DO NOT replace the switch panel. It costs around $140 and will not fix it. I am going to try the main blend door actuator this weekend, but I'm not certain it will fix it. From what I see on the schematics there are several actuators but I believe only 2 control the blend and the other two control the direction. I have been reading that this is a very common problem that can cost in the upwards of $1000 to get it fixed at the dealership. I'll let you know if replacing the main blend door actuator fixes the problem

2004 surban chevrolet ac problems passenger side air comes out hot


Hello and welcome. this is normally due to a bad temp door actuator. there are two temp door actuators on this vehicle. there is one for the drivers side and one for the passenger side. these are electric motors that move the temp doors. the one on the passenger side is what you will need to replace. it is mounted under the dash just above the floor hump

No heat from driver side


The vent actuator door may have gone bad and needs to be replaced. The common problem is not the motor but the actuator gears crack and break, but try to reset the actuator buy disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it first, but make sure the radio is turned off before you do that. If the actuator lost it's position, this procedure will reset the actuator's position if it's lost and don't know where to turn the vent doors.

This is how to replace drivers side or the passenger side actuator. Passenger side difference is noted at end of this letter. My 2000-2005 Chevy Impala driver side climate control was stuck on cold, no matter where I switched it to. The light on the panel was also out. Resetting by disconnecting the battery did not work. I had to buy and replace the drivers side actuator (Part Number 15844096 - $38.46 at Chevy dealer). The passenger side actuator is also the exact same part number. They are both located under the dash, about equal height as the climate control knobs. Make sure you disconnect the positive cable on the battery before removing the switch. Drivers side actuator is accessed by removing the bottom dash cover on the drivers side. Two easy clips to disconnect the dash cover, remove the floor courtesy light by twisting, and the cover comes right out. The drivers side actuator is harder to work on than the passenger side, due to room. But I replaced my actuator with only having to take off the bottom dash cover. There are two screws holding the actuator on. I used a 1/4 hand driver with a 3" extension, a 1/4 universal joint for the 1/4 socket (and the universal is needed), and a 7/32" socket. These were the only tools I needed. After unscrewing the two screws, I pulled the actuator off of a small arm it is connected to which switches the flap for the climate control system between hot or cold. I then was able to let it hang down, and disconnected the wire running to the actuator. Room was an issue, and I did some of this by feel. Now comes the tricky part. The new actuator has to slide back on the small arm, but it is flat on two sides, with rounded ends. The new actuator has to match the flat ends to the same position as the old actuator. I hooked the wire onto the new actuator, and let it hang down. I held the old actuator up by it, and had my wife hold the battery connector to the battery to get power. The new actuator will rotate when the connection is made, and stopped rotating when I had my wife pull the connector from the battery. It took a couple tries, but I finally got it to stop at the same position as the old actuator. I then lined up the new switch, and got it on the control arm. This took a few minutes and tries, as I had to do it by feel. I then put the two screws back in and tightened them down. Again, tricky due to room. Once done, I put the cover back on, reconnected battery, and warmed up the car. Was very happy to find that I now had heat on the drivers side, as Canadian weather is cold this time of year.
The whole job took me about an 1 1/2 hour to do.
Also, note if you have to replace the passenger side actuator, you need to remove the passenger side bottom cover on the dash. You then remove the glove compartment door by removing the five screws on the bottom of the door. Slide the whole glove compartment door out of the car. You will be happy to know you have much more room to replace the passenger side actuator, so it should be much easier and quicker than the drivers side.

Good luck and you may want to inspect the passenger side actuator also.

Two of my door locks will not unlock w/ remote or inside button.


The door lock actuators or 'solenoids' have failed. This seems to be pretty common on Windstars - I've just replaced a couple on my '02. (Ironically, the original batteries in the remote fobs are still going strong, they lasted longer than the actuators). You can buy third party replacement parts, the front door ones are 'handed' driver & passenger, but a common part will work for both sliding doors. I don't have instructions for removing the door panels, but search online - it's not tricky. The original actuators are riveted in place - you'll need to drill out these rivets. The new actuator can be held in place with a nut, bolt & couple of washers. Replacing these parts isn't too difficult - the first one took me about 1.5 hours, but once I knew what I was doing, the second one took about 0.5 hours. Good luck.

1999 Pontiac Montana passenger sliding door stopped working.


Verify the wiring harness which passes under plastic step & carpet at front passenger side. This wiring harness goes from the firewall to the pillar on the right side and some have crimped connectors in them to act as junction between two or more wires (ususlly the 12volt feed), which deteriorate with time, especially with Salt & Water. Then the electric sliding door stops working and even driver the electric seat can loose power.

Broken exterior door handle,passenger sider ,sliding


Got this idea from mpvclub.com: Get some stainless or aluminum sheet metal screws, drill pilot hole into the handle and into the receiving part behind, then screw in the screw. Do on both sides of handle (get appropriate length screw.) When done, get some putty or hardener to fill in the screw slot, let dry, then sand smooth, then paint with body color. Result is great and inexpensive.
