Ok. So you're using A/C and only the Driver's Side is responding. Thanks. Ok. When only one side of the system is blowing the correct temp air, the problem is most commonly due to a faulty Air Temp Actuator. In your case, the passenger's side one. This actuator is what turns the door internal of the HVAC housing to switch between Heat and A/C 9or a mix there of) as commanded by the control panel. The passenger's actuator is located behind the glove compartment, mounted to the side of the HVAC housing. Inspect the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires. Remove the actuator and turn the door by hand. Make sure it is moving correctly and there are no binds. THe temp should now be responding correctly. If any problems here, the HVAC housing will need to be removed, opened and the door inside repaired as needed. If everything here checks ok, replacing the Actuator.
