Thanks for holding!

When the air temp output is only correct on one side of the system, this is more commonly due to a faulty Air Temp Actuator. This is a small servo motor that turns the door internal of the HVAC housing. The driver's side actuator is located behind the center/driver's side of the dash. It is access from below the driver's side dash working upwards on and angle to the center of the dash (just above and to the right of the accelerator pedal). You'll need to remove the lower driver's side panel and center panel. Once inside, inspect the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires. If no problems are found, remove the actuator and turn the door pin by hand. Temp output should now be correct. If not, the problem lies internal of the HVAC housing. It will need to be removed from the vehicle and repaired/replaced as needed. But, like I say, more commonly, just the actuator here.

Unfortunately, I have no control over billing what so ever. I am a site user, just like you. The website connects question-asking customers with question-answering customers and they handle everything in between. If you have a billing question, you will need to contact customer service. There should be a link at the bottom of the page. They're very friendly over there. They'll take good care of you. Please keep in mind, if you do not leave a rating using the stars, I am not compensated for my time or information and the website keeps all the funds.
