All I can say is A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!!!!!!!!!! My son has a 2004 GMC Yukon and first it had a short in it that was draining the battery. I got that fixed. Then the speedometer cluster went out. $600 at GM to fix it, but I found a guy on E-Bay that fixed it for $64. (Brian's Speedometer Shop-Muldrow, OK) Now the AC was blowing hot air out the driver's side and cold air on the passenger's side. I just went out and took it apart and unplugged the harnesses on the back of the AC control and it works GREAT! Thank you very much!

Is this something so simple a layman can do it? I'm not sure I'd know what a harness is?

From what you say it sounds like your A/C system refrigerant charge is low.
To check for this you would need to have refrigerant pressure checked. Normally this is easy by running the engine with A/C on MAX cool and check the pressure in the low side service port but as your truck is 1994 model it could be more complicated as you might still have the old R12 refrigerant system. I'm not sure if pressure gauges etc. are available for that system to buy without a permit.
If you have the R12 system you should have it converted to 134a system, which you can service yourself.
If you have the 134a system get a pressure gauge from a parts store. Check pressure and if low charge system but first add oil charge as it is an old system. You might also want to add a charge with O-ring conditioner as if you are low in charge then you must have a leak somewhere.
Add refrigerant until pressure is at required level.
#105 of 308 Climate Control Issue 2005 yukon
Sep 04, 2009 (9:55 pm)
I am new here; I have been reading up on climate control issues after battery reconnect. I have tried removing Neg batt terminal to reset; would next like to try to reset module by pulling fuses. There are several that refer to front, both under hood, and on side of dashboard. Does anyone know the exact fuse that I should pull to attempt this reset. My system is blowing heat only, and I have no control over where the heat exits. Rear air is just fine.
#106 of 308 air condition one side heat the other ?
Sep 05, 2009 (4:39 am)
Yesterday I purchase and had installed 4 new tires, had an alignment,and a complete brake job done on my 2005 z71 suburban; it was like driving a new vehicle. Shortly after I hit the road from NTB I put on the air conditioning and noticed that I had cool air conditioned air on the driver side and heat from the passenger side. Does anyone have any advice? Could the air pressure sensors in the wheels effect the electrical system and confuse climate control? Are there any components that the service tech could have messed with?

I was wondering if this fix is still working for you. I'm about to buy an '04 yukon in phoenix and a/c is super critical. I experienced this prob on a test drive yesterday. was gone after a restart but won't always be able to pull over. If good, can you give me some clues on harness/colors so I pull the right one??...

Finally solved my a/c problem; tried a several things, like removing battery terminals and holding them together to drain residual voltage from processor, etc. Ended up that after removing neg terminal and putting it back in place, I turned on key, BUT DID NOT START THE YUKON. Waited a couple of minutes to let it re-program itself, then started it up. At that point, all is well. Hope this helps!!

I am glad that worked out for you and thanks for sharing.
One minor point, however, you did not remove the battery terminals. You removed the battery cables. That's just so no one tries something dangerous.
