Default HELP! heater only blowing on pass. side and

Hey everyone, I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 and the heat blows hot on only the passenger side vents and passenger side floor. No heat on drivers side or defrost just cold air. I have check all of the blend doors and mode door 1 and they work. Only one I havent checked is blend door 2 which is a pain to get to. I'm now thinking is not the blend doors at all. Anybody know whats wrong? thanks!

I had the exact same thing happen to my truck year before last. '02 1500 4.7. I changed a couple of blend doors and actuators, to no avail. I was fed up at that point and broke down and too it to my local dealership Bachman Bernard in Greeneville, Tn, only because I did NOT want to hassle taking my dashboard back out. It turned out being a faulty heater core. I was told that it had some build up and was only letting a small amount of hot fluid pass and that the air was cooling off to quickly to get to the drivers side. After the heater core swap my heater worked better than it ever had. Almost too good. Heater core cost about $100 but the labor itself was close to $600. Definitely not a cheap fix, but it was well worth every penny to me.
