warm air on driver side and cold on passanger
Will only direct air out of defrost and floor, not the front vents unless driving for a long time, and then only a minimal amount comes through. Once the car is parked, it vents through the defrost and heater again. Inspected vacuum pots under dash, couldn't find leak. Verified that engine vacuum was present. There is a control module that 6 small, multicolored lines connect to under the passenger side. This is where the automatic climate control designates which line has vacuum to actuate the controls for delivery. I wasn't able to do anything with it however. Still researching the issue.
hot air on driver side and cool air on passenger side how can this be fixed
hot air rt side cold air left side
My controls are stuck in the defrost/floor mode.
Hot air on the driver side, cold on the passenger side.
Air flow out Dash and floor only. Looking for a fix! I have not fixed it yet and was wondering where to start.
ac works good the problem is that air come on downside only. what causes it?
Air blows cold on passenger side and hot on drivers side. Can this be temp blend door actuator or is it the drivers side actuator? Where are they and how do you replace the drivers side?
Will not switch from air to heat.

Blowing cold air drivers side warm air passengers side. How do I fix the problem??
My air won't blow cold and. Only blows out floor vents defrost vents and rear vents in the back seat have not fix yet still don't know what to do
had the air serviced in july . last week it slowley started blowind warm then hot everything but cold . took it back today they said it probably was electrical
The blower motor was replaced due to vibration and squealing. Prior to this I couldn't get any volume of air to come out in any setting. After changing the motor I can hear the motor changing speeds but still no air coming out. Compressor cycles and heater control switch seems to shift.
hot air rt side cold air left side
I have to ruin the air on max because the other fan settings doesn't work at all. I think it should also blow harder.
Hot air at drivers seat and cold at r/h side
