Dual climate control problem

Post by ihawk » Mon Apr 23, 2018 8:40 pm

Ok so this is weird. I’ve never had an issue before, but today I’ve had an issue with my air con. My drivers side is ice cold, but the passenger side is baking hot, I’ve tried everything on the dials, but nothing works on the passenger side, hot all the time.
I’ve checked the fuses, but they are good.
I’ve got a 2010 tekna and I’ve seen on another post here that it could be the nissan qashqai climate control switch.

I’ve also seen something about the actuator, but I’d rather not invest in loads of trial and error solutions.

Thanks

Best to take it to a reputable garage.

Changing the pollen filter may require removing the actuator which is positioned by two screws. If heater is not set on Hi both sides before removal, the actuator will not have the cogs correctly aligned causing problems.

I can’t see it being the pollen filter, and I can confirm that it’s not the climate control switch as I changed this over yesterday. I’m thinking the actuator is the only other possibility

If you remove the actuator, then with the ignition on, on turning the temperature control you should see action. Just begin, and end on Hi before replacing, so the cogs line up correctly. Good luck.
