Oldsmobile AURORA: 1997 OLDS AURORA. AC IN FULL OPERATION.

This answer was rated:

1997 OLDS AURORA. AC IN FULL OPERATION. SET TO 60 DEGREES THE DRIVER SIDE BLOWS HOT AIR AND THE PASSENGER SIDE BLOWS ICE COLD. WHAT IS THE CAUSE OF THIS PROBLEM?


Joel :

Did this start all of a sudden? Any work done just prior to this problem?

Customer:

Yes it did. I had the bell housing pully replaced in January. I hadn' run the ac up until now but only to circulate the system. it worked perfectly fine until the other day.

Customer:

Car is still one of the few left in the country under 70K miles and well kept. It had a common problem fixed in January. The drive pully. It was replaced. I had a steering problem prior to the pully being replaced. Now, I don't have any problems other than the a.c. Everything is functioning. Auto temp, all vents, the compressor is running perfectly in cycle, the climate control unit works perfectly all knobs and buttons and lights and screen and readings on the unit. It all works perfect. No fuses blown, the blower motor blows like a lone wolf. all the vents have some form of air coming out of them be it hot or cold. Just in ac mode, at 60 degrees, passenger side ice cold and driver side very hot. Thats it. Totally abnormal.

OK. Sounds like you have the common problem of the drivers side temp door actuator failed. There is a temp door for each side, and the drivers side is malfunctioning. You need to get that replaced.

Ok, where is the actuator and how do I get to it exactly? And thank you in advance. I will be doing this repair in the morning pending I can find the part. Parts are scarce for this vehicle and some obsolete. If this solves the problem I will rate after final results of repair.

Yes, the part is available. Most parts store will either have it or can get it. Here is a pic of its location on the center HVAC case accessed from under driver side of dash. #5
