I haven't seen this topic, yet.  The passenger side blows hot air all the time, except, of course, when it's at the dealer.  For the last couple months, the passenger side will start blowing hot air regardless of the temp setting, regardless of the direction (foot, face, defrost).  Turning it off and back on doesn't help, moving the direction doesn't help, the temperature knob has no effect.  It's as if the computer just turns the passenger temp to high hot on it's own.  Anyone have any ideas?

It's broke.  Take it back to the dealer.

I had this happen with the passenger side also.  Tried changing temps, settings, turning car on/off, etc but nothing fixed it except leaving it on and rolling down the windows while continuing to drive for several more minutes.  I'd guess it was about 5 minutes (seems like an eternity when it's pumping out really hot air) before it settled down and operated correctly.  Never done it since.  

 

On a somewhat related note, my wife had the same thing happen to her a few years ago while driving my then new volt and I've seen several reports from others on that forum to this day.  I think it's a software bug and not hardware related but that's just a guess.

Sounds like that's keeping your passengers a tad too toasty, keving. When was the last time you were at the dealer for this? Please send me a PM with your VIN, mileage, best contact number, full name, and dealer info; let's see how I can help get your passenger air temp control to behave.

I'm glad to see it settled down, fotomoto!
