    We have the same problem on a '98 Buick LeSabre. The air conditioner works on drivers side only -- just hot vent air comes out from passenger side vents.

    Same problem exactly! Warm air comes out of passenger side when air conditioner is on.

    A/C is mediocre cool when running it on both sides at the same time. When the "Dual" button is pressed, the passenger side gets colder than the driver side. What's happening and ow do I fix it?

My Buick had the same problem and it was simply a stuck damper, behind the glove compartment. Freed it up, simple fix, works fine now.

It is probably a solenoid or vacuume motor that has failed where the heater core is located

1995 Lesabre blows hot on drivers side, cold on passenger side


THIS IS A GUESS. Both sides probabley have "mix" dampers that regulate temp by mixing hot and cold air to make you comfortable. Passenger side must not work properly, stepper motor? Dirty actuator? Temp sensor on passenger not working? Don't honestly know but I'm not sure a do it yourselfer could figure it out. Sounds complicated.

How can I fix


This is either an out of phase issue or a temperature control blend door or blend door motor actuator problem, it can also be the climate control module in the dash, 1st try disconnecting the battery for 5 min's to re-sync the climate control module, if this fails u will need to find out what blend door is the problem or if they are ok replace the automatic climate control module in the dash

1998 Volvo S70 2.0L Air conditioner not working correctly


This may be one or two different problems. One could be the climate control unit itself. Surprisingly the problem with the air not changing the source will likely be remedied by a reprogramming by a Volvo dealer. Defrost is the delfault outlet if there is a problem with that system. As for the dial not having detents and the cold instead of hot air in the pass side, that could be programming, a disconnect with the heater door for the passenger side or it could be the control unit. 98 is a difficult year to diagnose and the dealer is likely the only one who can properly diagnose this car. The download at the dealer is an inexpensive fix. If there is a mechanical problem within the air system that could prove more costly. I'm not sure how much the control unit for the climate control system, but there are usually quite a few on ebay. Good luck and I would suggest visiting the dealer first for this one as it is the least expensive fix and could very well be the only problem.
