Like many others here, I've had no heat on the passenger side. At 55, miles. Are you kidding me? Clearly, Dodge knows that this is an issue given the number of identical complaints yet, when I called them as suggested in another post hereI was informed in no uncertain terms that there was "nothing we can do.
This was my first Dodge and will definitely be my last. I bought my Avenger exactly 4 years ago, and since I pulled it off the lot my heat on the passenger side hasn't worked.
I haven't had it looked at before because I usually drive by myself so it really didn't bother me. But now the driver side heat is starting to lose heat. I have had contact with Dodge but they told me that it is only under warranty the first 3 months or first 32, miles.
So that option was out. I drive 45 minutes to work and this morning I pretty much froze all the way to work. I am going to have to break down and get it checked out to see exactly what the problem is, I am just afraid it is going to cost a small fortune. Replaced the blend door actuator behind the glove box. That only fixed the clicking noise. Problem still exists. Apparently Dodge doesn't stand behind their products.
Will never own another one. Began in November; blowing cold air on the right side and luke warm air on the left side. Tested thermostat which was OK but decided to replace it anyway. No go.I had this problem Dodge caravan of AC on driver side while the passenger side blows heat. I had to do the same thing for the back control. Try this first. Good luck. I had this problem with my Dodge caravan of AC on driver side while the passenger side blows heat.
I tried all the recommendations through out this thread but the only thing that works was resetting the dials by moving them simultaneously from cold to hot and back again several times while the car is on.
Tried it on my Dodge Grand Caravan Our problem is like many: heat coming out of passenger side while cool from drivers side. I will talk to my local dealer BUT expecting they will say nothing is covered as vehicle has 83, miles. John answered 3 years ago. In some cases, if you live in a highly abrasive dusty environment or area where lots of trees with small pine needles, small leaves, seed pods, bird droppings park under a tree liked by bird flocks and any airborne krap that can clog the vents above the hood.
If you were to dissaemble the black hood vent and clean out what is underneath, you might be surprised at the "mush" that has formed hidden from eyesifght that maybe blocking a screen or filter grid or may even be blocking controls.
If you car is garaged from new and never exposed to outdoor flim-flam much, then you could look elsewhere. Older vans - mostly had 'slider' controls for separate heat controls and I gues current have rotary dials. Whether they operate mechanically, by vacuum, or by electric motor, one need to ask techs, dealer or private.
If older vans give no heat, no heat at all, then 'thermostat is usually broken and needs replacement. Engine is likely never fully warming up too, especially in cold weather If you do and no improvement is noted, then look at the more complex under dash damper door modulating system. GuruWVV7R answered 2 years ago. Thx caravan owner! With the engine running I switched the heat control knob from hot to cold position several times and it finally worked.
I hope this helps with your problem. Just tried your fix. Passenger side was always kicking out heat, regardless of where the knob was turned. It had nothing to do with the fan knob. I turned the passenger knob from hot to cold a few times and the heat did stop.
Trying it again, it seems that turning the knob from cold to hot to cold just once works if you put some downward pressure on the knob as it approaches the cold setting. Downward pressure or wiggling the knob up and down seems to make the heat stop. Thanks for saving me a mechanic's bill. What do I try next. GuruVD9XQ answered about a year ago. Ac or cool air on driver and hot from passanger side FIXED by the above suggestions— just moved passanger side dial a few times back and forth ehile running ac and voila!!!
It now blows cool air. Supposedly the motor that turns the flaps is not very strong. Yeah for easy fixes!!! GuruLT answered about a year ago.
Thanks worked on a Chrysler town and country. Was only blowing heat on drivers side turned the knobs a few times with car running now blowing cold air. Cannuck answered about a year ago. I have a Grand Caravan that just started doing this.Problem with my Buick.
The problem I have is that when you turn the ac on the cool air only comes out the 2 vents on the passenger side. The 2 vents on the drivers side have warm air blowing out. This actuator controls the temperature door for that side. Dual zone systems have a temp door for each side. If the car does not have dual zone climate control, this sounds like a problem that some mechanics miss.
This problem is a low freon charge in the system. It will not be apparent if just looking at freon gauge pressures- they will be normal. There is simply not enough freon capacity in the system to cool the air to the drivers side. Only way to be sure is to drain and measure the freon in the system. Answer: We would need to know what make and model Buick you are asking about. Are you looking for the drivers side or passenger side actuator?
Can turn the key off and restart andnir will start blowing cold again. It doeant do it all the time. Where is temperature door actuator on a Cadillac deville. Blows hot on drivers side, cold on passengers? I have a Equinox that blows Hot on drivers side and cold on Passenger.

I've read that this could be an blend door actuator that needs to be replaced? Spoke with dealer and they thought it could be the heater core.
How can the heater core be defective if it blows hot air out of the drivers side? The blend door makes more sense to me. What do you think? Can I replace this myself without having to remove the dashboard? Please advise. It sounds like you may have a faulty blend door actuator.
These doors are operated by small actuator motors that are activated when you turn the knob or switch to make a change to the vents. When these actuator motors fail, you may notice the flow of air may not be working properly according to the change you have made.

When this system breaks you may need to replace your air conditioning components. However, before you do that, troubleshoot the problems. Start the truck and adjust the air from low to high and back down again.
Listen for the blower motor. The noise should increase when turned higher and decrease when turned lower. The blower motor will be a black cylinder-shape with a white plastic bowl-like piece on top. Unplug the electrical connector and remove it. Look at the compressor in front of the engine with the belt to make sure it is quiet.
Find the compressor by going to the driver's side engine compartment. Find the two hoses, one small and one larger, coming from the firewall. Follow them back toward the car and you will find the compressor. Adjust the temperature controls to make sure they are working correctly. The dials should have the proper amount of resistance. If these are not working correctly, it may be a fuse problem. Locate the fuse box by opening the driver's side door and prying off the panel near the steering wheel with a screwdriver.
Remove the fuse with pliers and replace with a fuse of equal wattage to avoid damaging the electrical system. Check to make sure the dome lights and graphics display are working properly. If they are not, then it may be a control panel problem.Dodge Avenger owners have reported 3 problems related to air conditioner under the equipment category.
