Yes, The driver side actuator has failed, actuator is mounted on passenger side of heater case under the dash, remove close out panel on bottom of dash, remove glove box then turn on key actuate the temp control switches and watch for movement of door linkage and you can tell which actuator isn't moving.

My 98 Buick Park Avenue has driver and passenger AC settings but the passenger side always blows hot air. Very cold on drivers side. Why??Can't stand the heat even when vent is closed.


Try unplugging the battery for 5 min's to re-sync the dual climate controls. If that fails it is likely that the air temperature control blend door is sticking to in the heated air position, this is either due to the door being warped and sticking inside the duct work or the electric actuator for the door being defective, both are usually replaced.

Douglass, Your A/C may have lost it's programming, blend door actuator could be faulty or A/C could be low on refrigerant. You may have to take in and have a good Tech. diagnose and estimate repair.

Look for a vacuum line off or leaking start in the engine compartment than work your way under dash usually in engine compartment but could be under dash usually passenger side or on the back of control switch on dash.

Heating, AC and vent problem


The actuator door that is behind the dash that closes off the heater core from shooting hot air thru the vents might be your problem. When you turn on your ac the actuator shuts the door to prevent the air from flowing thru the heater core into the cabin, this may be your problem if everything else is working properly. Let us know.

Heat comes thru driver's side vents, but blows cold air thru passenger side vents


You likely have a faulty blend door. It could be electrically, mechanically related, or even a broken door. It may be the blend door motor, or possibly the temp sensor.

I charged my ac last summer, worked great. This summer the 2 vents on the passenger side work great, very cold. The 2 vents on the drivers side blow air but not cold, just like the ac is not on?


One of your Actuators inside the dash that control the A/C Heat doors/ Baffles that open or close, to either give you hot or cold air has failed. Find and replace the failed Actuator and it should work fine.

Hot and Cold air from vents in 2001 Olds Aurora


The Aurora has dual-zone heating & cooling. Sounds like either the sensor or control know on the car is disconnected or not working. The passenger control is the knob on the passenger door. The sensor for it is under the glove box. I believe you need to remove the glove box hinge to see it. Could be the wires came loose or the sensor is bad. If anyone was working in either of these areas, maybe they forgot to reconnect one of them.
