The temperature control doors are controlled with electric actuators. Often what happens is either the drivers or passenger side temp door actuator will work properly for a while then suddenly move the door all the way to hot or cold [usually hot]. If you shut off the vehicle, wait a bit and restart it, if often will work fine for a time but then act up again after a while. I've replaced quite a few actuators for just this problem. They are located behind the dash on the HVAC unit and are fairly difficult to get to. I don't know if these actuators are available at parts stores yet but I get all of mine from the local GM dealer.

Replaced the battery on a GMC Sierra 2005. Turned AC on, it cooled for about a minute and started blowing hot air on the driver side, the passenger side blows cold. What does replacing the battery have to...

you have taken the calibration out of sink. you will now have to remove battery power again for about 5 minutes. after this time reconnect the battery. then turn key to on position for 3 minutes but do not touch the heater control or temperature controls. This should allow the heater and ac system to recalibrate. once the 3 minutes is up turn key off and then back on and start truck.. Try your controls again and see what happens. if no change then dealer will have to reprogram the heater control calibration for you.

Climate control fan revs up when brakes applied

I am going to say you have a bad ground wire, check the ground wires and the terminal if its loose or bad connection. the ground terminal is located at the passenger side of dash,far right, above glove box area, bolted to the body.solid black or black with white stripe. I dont know how hard it is to get to.

Heater problems

Probably passenger temp actuator. Make sure connectors are fully seated on right I/P junction block. If they are, it's more than likely a faulty actuator. Dash pad and air distribution ductwork have to be removed to access actuator.

With AC on cold, Drivers air full hot & passenger side full Cold

that is a good possibilty, but before I pulled the trigger I would try this first. unhook the battery for 5 minutes, rehook it, now turn the key on, wait for 2 minutes, now start the truck and see if the doors now work. sometimes this works, its worth a try.
