Hi thanks for using The reason that that is only blowing hot on the driver side. Is because the left side air temp actuator has possibly failed. This would need to be checked by an advanced scan tool that does bi-directional testing. And more likely the reason is blowing hot air on the passenger side is because you may have over charge the system. All of the refrigerant would need to be evacuated from the system and refill to the proper charge amount. There is a low pressure switch on the system that keeps the compressor from functioning. So that it will not damage the compressor or any other components. If you have any other questions feel free to ask if you are satisfied please accept and write my answer as this is how we are credited. Thank you and have a great day.
