    Check to see if your car is equipped with dual-zone climate control that has separate temperature controls for driver and passenger. Adjust as necessary.

    Yes it has dual controls but regardless were you set the passenger control it still blows cold air. This is only happening when you go to heat or defrost. I have checked the fuses and looked behind the glovebox to see if I could locate where the damper that controls the passenger side was at. A lot has changed since the last time I have been under the dash of a car lol. Can you point me in the right direction.

    Behind the glovebox there is a motor that controlled the damper it was bad. It was a $ 100.00 to fix it. That's not bad.
