My battery went dead and I jumped it off. Now my passenger side is stuck blowing hot air. I have had this problem before with the driver side blowing hot air when my battery has died. I done the reset procedure and it fixed the problem. I have tried the reset procedure this time for my current problem of passenger side blowing hot air and it is not fixing the problem. Do you have any other suggestions that could help? I looked at your forum about the blend door actuator over traveling, but I’m not sure what exactly to do to unstick my passenger blend door actuator if that could be the problem.


Many times the actuator will “unstick” itself by waiting overnight and retrying the system.

If not you can sometimes get it to move using a scan tool or the process outlined in the following article.
