#140 of 149 08 Santa Fe cabin heat blows cold on drivers side
Feb 21, 2013 (6:26 pm)
I have a 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited in very good condition that i purchase brand new. It currently has 70,000 highway miles. I commute to and from work by train since i past around 60,000 miles. Sometime after 60,000 the check engine light came on. Now the gas gauge is inaccurate and cannot determine how much gas is in the tank. Also it is winter and inside the cabin the heater blows normally on the passenger side but blows cold on the drivers side. The dealer wants to charge over $500-$600 to replace the fuel sending units (2 pieces one for each side under the rear seat which are little float like devices that sit in the gas tank) costing around $80 each i believe. Hyundai doesnt cover this if your vehicle has over 60,000 miles which is when this part seems to fail. Im going to attempt to do myself after doing some research doesnt seem too difficult as this is a common problem with Hyundai who refuses to ignore this that has happened with their other models and older santa fe models. For these reasons is why i will never buy a hyundai ever ever ever ever ever ever again.....

I too have a 2008 santa fe and also have the same exact problem with the air blowing cold on the drivers side when its freezing cold out. I just fixed the fuel gauge problem replacing both fuel sending units which is also a common problem with the santa fe but i had to pay out of pocket due to my vehicle having over 60,000 miles. Not only did i run out of gas numerous times because the gas gauge didn't work the interior now smells of gas which will take weeks if not months to go away. Hyundai wanted to charge me $500-$600 to fix this but bought the parts myself on ebay and had an outside mechanic fix for $60. I removed the rear seats myself making it easy access for the repair. Now i have to fix this cold air problem. Anyone have any idea what i have to do for this????????

Dealer did mine and said it was a $750 part (Climate Control Unit). It took them about an hour and a half to fix it. I believe it was a circuit board but cannot help more than that. The work sheet showed they checked several different voltages and viewed the heater door actuation motor before and after Climate Control Unit replacement.

my a/c has been turning on when it wants to since 11/2012! I have gone to dealer many times & they just tell me I have a ghost in my car. Did you find out what the problem is!
#148 of 149 Heat on passenger side, cold everywhere else
Nov 04, 2013 (5:15 pm)
I purchased a 2008 Santa Fe Limited in June of this year. Did not purchase at a Hyundai dealership--bought from a Toyota dealership. 28,000 miles. Turned on the heater last week and only the heat on the passengers side works. (Heated seats work on both sides) Drivers side vents, defroster on drivers side and rear seat vents all cold. No extended warranty. Paid more for this vehicle than I was planning because it looked so nice. Where do I start with this? Certainly not looking for a high repair bill. I know many of you have been through this so help me cut to the chase. Thanks!

Sorry to hear you are having trouble, we had the same problem but fortunately our dealer repaired it at no charge. They replaced a board that controlled which vents opened an closed. If I remember right it was about a $500 job. Ours has worked fine since. I have been happy with both our Santa Fe vehicles, 2008, and 2007. The invoice says "No voltage signal from control unit to passenger air mix actuator temperature controller, open voltage signal in climate module". Looks like the part number was
