Passenger side vents blowing hot air while drivers side is cold w/ A/C activated. Tried turning passenger climate control off (clicking off button once) did not resolve.

These have separate left and right heater control door motors and sometimes they will stick in place,sometimes if you tap on the motor it will start to work but it should be replaced as it will stick again.these motors are under the dash on the passenger side on top of the heater box.

Why does 1 side of dash blow hot and the other cold when ac is on with the dual climate control?


Check the actuator motor on the heater it directs the air into the vents. There is probably two of them be sure to check both. The motor makes the vents move and again directs the air where you want. Hope this helps.

Dual Temperature controls inside - 2002 lincoln ls


The problem is most likely a bad dual climate control valve. This component is located on the right side near the radiator under the hood. It will have several coolant hoses hooked to it and 2 silver cylinders protruding from it. You can clamp off the heater hoses at the heater core and see if both sides cool then and this will tell you that the valve is letting coolant thru when it shouldn't be.

This will narrow it down to either the valve or the control head inside the car,or wiring in between them. The only way to narrow it down further is if you have a scan tool that could access the climate control data. Have seen several of these valves cause this concern and have only seen one control head cause it.
