Cadillac Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. Is your escalade equipped with automatic or manual climate control?
The problem is almost certainly the blend door actuator which unfortunately is not a simple project. It's on the top of the air box toward the center of the truck under the dash. I would first try to reset it by disconnecting the battery for about 10 minutes, then re connecting the battery and turning the ignition key on for 2 minutes. dont start the truck. then turn the key back to the off position for 2 minutes. Then start the car and see if it is working. It may take a couple attempts. Let me know how it goes.
I can definitely give you the directions. I am not at the shop at the moment but will be in the morning. I don't think you can access it through the glove box. I have heard of people actually removing the top of the dash board though to gain access. There are 2 actuators for the front. Driver side and passenge side. The driver side is much easier than the passenger to replace.
here is the procedure for the blend door actuator.

You indicated that everything worked correctly except the passenger side which is the right side. That's what I sent you. Do you want the procedure for the driver side as well?
Your having ac problems on both sides? I would check the charge first to make sure your not a little low on freon. It's not uncommon for low freon to have ac blow cold on one side and not so cold on the other. Here is the procedure for the driver side blend door actuator.
and when your a little low, your compressor will cycle off more than it should which will cause intermittent cooling so check the charge first with a set of gauges.
I've provided all the instruction I have. I will open it up in case someone else has something better.
