Question about 1995 Buick Park Avenue
As snowbird said, it's most likely your passenger climate control system. Could be a short in a wire or a burnt acuator that moves the passenger door open and close. If you don't have the money or time to troubleshoot the problem you can pull down the glovebox and you'll see a metal rod about 8 inches long connected to the acuator. If you pop it off by the white connector, you can move it to full hot or cold. If it was the heater core it wouldn't matter where the air is comming out, it'd be the same temp.
It'll take you 5 minutes tops to simply check it by moving that door.

Good for the summer not so good for the winter. Do you have auto climate control. That's the one that you can set your side hotter or colder then the other side of the vehicle. If this is the case then it could be the oh I can't think of the correct name of it but all it is, is an value with in the temp control. Or the other thing that it could be is the your heater core is gone. A good way to check this is to get the car up to operating temp fine were your inlet and outlet hose are for the heater turn on you heater with the controls in the high temp. Then touch the inlet hose that will be hot then touch the outlet hose that should be hot also, if not hot then the core requires replacement or you can try an coolant flush first to see if that works.

I have the same problem on my 99 park. I had it fixed two years ago ($300), but its doing it again. They said it was the "switch" that controled the blend doors. When I went back to the shop, they said the part was only warranted for 90 days. I'm going to a junkyard and get a used temperature actuator and put that one on. Don't have $200 for the part thats only going to last a year and a half..
