I'm getting no heat out of the drivers side vents but plenty of air. Passenger side vents have plenty of heat. Both sides get cold air from A/C. Any suggestions? :frown:

Sounds like you need a blend door actuator replaced. Welcome to the club. It's dealer time.

The OP has a 2015 and it's likely they are still under warranty. The warranty will cover this free of charge!:wink3:

I made an appointment with the dealer tomorrow morning. I think my warranty expires next week.

Thank you. I do appreciate the offer. They have had the car all morning and evidently not doing so well. I came home to wait for their call. I don't anticipate any problems with the dealer. I just knew this would be a hard problem to solve since it's been this way since I purchased the car almost 3 years ago. It is intermittent and that makes it hard to find but since it's not working at the moment I decided to let them take a shot at finding the problem. About 2 years ago I made an appointment to get it fixed but before the appointment I decided to check to see if it was still not working and it was working ok. (It's even harder to find a problem when it's not showing up) I cancelled the appointment and decided to wait until it showed up again. Well I'm in Florida so I don't use it unless I make a trip up North so the problem did not show up again until I decided to see if it was working or not before my warranty expired and sure enough it is not working again. I have "hope" they will find the cure.

Mine acted up one time for a while. I just closed the driver vents off and aimed the passenger vents at me and turned the heat up all the way. It was better than nothing. I was going to take it in, but then it just sort of fixed itself. I'm sure at some point it will do it again and I'll have to actually deal with it. Sounds like it's a relatively easy fix.

Hey guys I'm having a slightly different issue. My recirc, defrost, top air vents, and floor air vents all blow nice cool air which is great. The not so great is it blows nice cool air even when the thermostat is turned all the way to hot. Both heater core hoses are hot so I'm assuming an actuator has gone out. Now I know there are 3 actuators (2 passengers side and 1 drivers side?). Which of these 3 needs changed in order to get the blend door to switch between hot and cold air sources?

Thanks in advance for saving me from the dealer.

I have a similar issue, I get different temperature air out of the passenger side defrost than from the drivers side defrost. Passenger side varies with the temperature control while drivers side is quite cold no matter the setting.
Car is still under warranty and I have an appointment next week to have them look at it. I'll keep you posted.
