One or more heater & AC (HVAC) air delivery and/or temperature mode door actuator may fail. This can result in incorrect air delivery or temperature. If this occurs, fault code(s) stored in the HVAC control module should be available to assist with diagnoses.

    Intermittantly, hot air comes thru driver's side when all selectors are off. This can happen when A/C is on also, but passenger side is cold. No codes come up on computer when checked. Replaced driver's side actuator door once with an after-market product. It's still doing it. Temp fixes include turning off engine and restarting; turn knob to defrost to redirect air; and recently found that pressing the recirc button helps too while driving. Does the driver's actuator door need to be replaced again? Does it need to be a GM part?

    Dual zone air delivery - one side blows a/c cooled air and the other blows heated air in spite of temp control settings
