I have a 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe that blows hot air most of the time when the vent is on. It also dilutes the AC when on. It is not consistant and appears to be a hot air door that that is not fully closing or a controller that is acting up. The dealer replaced the control consule earlier this year without success. He claims Hyundai Tech Support is baffled and 'never heard of this' and has no solution.
The symptom will vary and suddenly start or stop making driving with fresh air impossible.

I have a 2008 Santa Fe Limited, just noticed when trying to get heat in auto or out of auto the passenger side blows cold air while drivers side works properly. Both sides seemed to work correct using AC this summer(last week). I have read several posts but haven't seen a definite answer. Tried to also get into Hyundai Webtech but was unable to create an account. Any answers out there?

No solution yet, drivers side works fine. Passenger side worked with AC but heat usually blows cold. We bought the car in August and this is the only issue we have had. I will be sure to post if I make some progress.

For us it was the blower motor, had to research the solution myself after a bunch of trips to the dealer. It was pretty sad the dealership couldn't figure it out.

Was your problem the flapper door motor or the fan motor? I understand there are flapper door motors on drivers and passengers side. Did you fix it your self or get the dealer to work on it? Cost? Thanks

As far as I know it was on the main dial that turned the blower on. Dealer did it under warranty. The heater would just stop even though the dial was turn to three quarters. They replaced something and then the dial would be turned off and the actual would turn on full blast by itself. It wouldn't happen every time. One a week maybe, it took them a couple times to get it to work correctly.

My heater problem, hot on drivers side and cold on passenger side, has been corrected for our 2008 Santa Fe with 60K miles on it. Local dealer replaced Climate Control Unit at no charge. We purchased vehicle from this dealer in Aug 2012 with 56K miles on it. I am very happy with this vehicle.

Did you by any chance pay for an Extended Warranty when you bought the Sante ?
#134 of 144 heater problem in 08 santa fe
Feb 18, 2013 (8:42 pm)
My 08 Hyundai Santa Fe 3.3L won't blow full heat normally, but very rarely it will. The dealer isn't convinced that there is a problem, but to keep me happy they changed thermostat, did coolant flush, changed cabin filter, still under warranty. But no improvement. It normally reaches 125-136F (depends on fan speed). But on the rare occasion it reached 144-154F. I consider this reasonable since I measure about the same on other cars. Any ideas what to try next cause the dealer isn't any help. I think they are just stalling for time since the warranty is up in 2 months. Since I measured 144-154 once then I know the car can do it, but it is intermittent. btw, I measured a few other 08 santa fe's. Two were like mine, one was hot like 144-154. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks
