If it has dual climate control -- drivers and passenger temp control-----
it could be a temp blend actuator, if it has only one temp adjustment,
it could be a door concern inside the plenum behind the inst panel.

One side hot other side cold

if you have dual controls for temperature for passenger and driver, they may be set to different levels, try to push the driverside temp control switch or knob in and this will give driver control over both sides again

When a/c on blow cold on passenger side cold and warm on the driver side

this sounds like a bad driverside blend door actuator motor, this controls the door for hot or cold air, theres one for pass/side and one for driverside, this motor is located on heater box under the dash,the hard part is to locate it because there are about 4 of them, you would have to locate them one by one and then move all controls until you find the one that doesnt move and that would be the bad one , hope this help.

The climate control stays hot on the drivers side and cold on the passenger side on all three, defrost , mid and floor . the passengers side will get hot if you raise the temp to 84 or higher. the drivers...

you have a bad blend motor out, has a hole in the vacuum diaphragm look at the heater box under the dash on passenger side when you find the blend door motor pull it off and **** on the end of the vac. motor watch if the lever moves, if it does get it to the max pull position and with your tongue on the end of the pipe hold the vacuum if it releases the arm then the diaphragm is shot, it also could be the hose end is loose, if this is the case cut the end of the hose off and re hook and try it again. if this does not work try moving the lever on the air box and holding it to the hot postion, if it does not get hot then Your blend door might not be working. Post here if you need more help.
