Q: a/c blows cool air on drivers side and heat on the passengers side

asked by on

Air conditioning only works on driver side while heat comes on passengers side

My car has 90000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A few different things can cause the AC to only work on one side of the car. Most likely it is either a blend door or the vehicle is low on refrigerant. A qualified technician from YourMechanic will be able to diagnose your car’s AC problems and perform any repairs required.
