Lol i have an 04 too last year i figured out a way for it too blow heat, but i cant remember what i did, i was told it was the vent that switches the air from cold too hot doesn't work since it has dual climate control, which is why the passenger works.

Might be a blend door issue (but usually that's only one side will blow cold air).

Could it be with the Hot and Cold slide bar too control it, it does have resistance in it though well mine does.

It may also be connected to the coolant leak you reported in another thread... Idea ...Ben

Well the coolant thing is fixed now that was a bad water pump fitting but it was doing it the first winter since i got the car, idk it wakes me up in the mornings for work lol, but i guess i should start doing my homework on it, it does get annoying not having heat.

They are electrical and it's most likely the actuator, not the slider itself

I have the same problem. Except both sides are affected. The only thing that changes when I select full cold to full hot is the flow. Is this still a blend door issue?

You might have a plugged heater core.

Can I just pull the rubber hoses off that run to the heater core and run a hose through is possibly?
