Welcome to JustAnswer. My online handle is Honda-Man, I am ready to help with your Honda question. I have over 30 years experience with Honda vehicles.
I doubt the wiring was left disconnected otherwise the hot cold settings would not work at all.
If the hot cold settings are reversed the air mix(blend) motor wiring is backwards. This will open the water valve backwards too causing your problem. If a wiring adapter harness was used it was wired wrong from the manufacture. If the wiring was cut and spliced the installation tech mixed up some of the wires. The only other explanation is there is a problem with the heater and A/C control panel itself. This is a new one for me? but there is really no other reasonable explanation. I would ask the installation tech to recheck their work or possible try a different adapter harness.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you. Your satisfaction and accepting my service or providing a positive rating is what I work for! If you can't rate in this way please let me know so I can continue to help. A positive rating is the only way the site will compensate me for helping you. You can still ask follow-up questions after the rating.
Thanks again! ~Honda-Man

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
