      Obtain written repair estimates- with all costs and details. Next, determine any resale or salvage value for the vehicle in the current condition. These two items will help you make the best decision.

    What is the usual cause for cold air to come out on one side and hot the other?
    if it is the actuator motor that controls the flap door, where is it located under dash?

      Your going to get either some a/c or some amount of heat-whatever you choose
      out of all duct outlets IF the HVAC Blend Doors work properly

      I would say your heater core blend door works--as you get heat

      I would say you may have a Blend Door that has failed

      I do not have a diagram of your vehicle

      You can have 5 of those doors & any combination in manual
      or auto mode -- for the places the air flows

      Defrost,Floor,Cabin,Recirculate or some combo of those

      On your car I would guess an electronic motor actuator

      You would have to eiither get under the dash & look or look
      at a an HVAC Diagram before you should go under the dash
      or determine which one may have failed

      You may also have scan tool data to look at

      BMW is not easy to get that software for all makes of
      scan tools & you want to avoid a dealer if possible

    check? I don't have turn signals, the seat belt light stays on...the radio controls on the steering wheel do not work but the cruise control on the steering wheel works. The fuse box placard tells you about the fuses but not enough detail. Any suggestions without ...
