the other day,for the 1st time i sat in my passenger seat and noticed that the Air vents throw out hot air.I HAD THE a/c ON FULL AND THE DRIVERS SIDE WAS THROWING OUT COLD AIR,WHILE THE PASSENGER SIDE WAS THROWING HOT AIR UNTIL ABOUT 20 MINUTES OF DRIVING IT,then the air just got okay MILD.still not as cold as the drivers side.

anybody had this problem?if so what do you think is wrong?its like something isnt kicking on the passengers side.

the passenger's side will never get as cold as the driver's side. design of HVAC housing. but 9 out of 10 times, the system has been low on freon. adding freon will bring them closer to the same

had the same issue - read on here about maybe being low on freon or blend door being stuck.

ended up buying recharge kit - took both cans of freon to get to correct low side pressure.

wah lah, the a/c is back and blowing snowballs at ya on both sides. i checked passenger side temp and driver side temp after i recharged, and both read 59 degrees.

i recommend you getting the recharge kit, then going from there.

i've read on here quite a few folks having this issue.
havent had any further issues after i charged it up.
it actually seems like it has gotten a bit colder on both
sides now that i have driven it a while.
