AC wont work on lower settings

Hi,  I recently started having problems with the AC on my Chevy 1997 Cavalier 2 dr coupe model. The AC wont blow cold air on the lower settings, i.e. 1 & 2, however when I turn it up to 3 and 4 it works fine.
How can I fix this?

I just replaced mine on a 97 cav z24 on 01/24/09. In the passenger side, remove the bottom panel that is under the glove box. On the blower motor (its circular and black you can't miss it) look for a white plug that connects to it (should be about 1/4 of an inch away from the firewall). The white plug is held to the blower by 2 5.5mm screws. Remove those 2 screws (there is one screw on each side of the plug and opposite of eachother), separate the wiring from it, connect it to the new part and replace it back in. It is a simple procedure thankfully. **You must have some sleek and small tools for the removal of the 5.5mm screws. There is extrely limited room and can't be done with a convential socket wrench or screw driver.** Let me know if you need more help with it or clarification.

    ACDELCO Part # 158706 $20.79 at rockauto.com, (best parts prices on the internet) at the dealer most likely $30-$40, time to install about 45 minutes, have no idea what your local labor rate is, here it is $130.00 per hour. The part is behind the glove box on the heater box near the blower motor.

Hi there!

Its normal for the car to idle in high RPM in the cold start and soon as it warms up then it will go down. I dont think you are having any problem. And the Code for the gas cap usually come on when the Cap been loose for a while or when you pump the gas with the car running or a bad cap, And now you need to clear the code. Good luck

first problem is simply your radiator cooling fans (there tow of them) are not working my be due to a fuse and/or relay those fans are turning with ac on even if your car is cold and turns when radiator gots hot even if ac is off
so when your car is hot open the hood and just take a look are they running or not they just in front of radiator

The heater when I turn it on high blow it makes a noise like I can here a fan running and when I turn it down you can here it shut down. Note; the blower only works on high.


LOWER SPEEDS FOR HEATER / AC ARE CONTROLLED BY A RESISTOR. IT IS NORMALLY LOCATED UNDER THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE DASH, NEAR THE BLOWER MOTOR. APPROX. 2 1/2 INCHES LONG, HELD IN WITH 2 HEX OR PHILLIPS HEAD SCREWS. GET A NEW ONE BEFORE YOU START FOR IDENTIFICATION & COMPARING. GOOD LUCK, DR VOLT.

2001 cavalier air conditioner blowing hot air


Why do they want to replace the compressor?noisy?If you can put a charge on the ac then it's hot again after a day,then you have a leak.all the ac lines have o-rings where they are connected.without put dye in the system you wont know for sure.So I would try that first.

when an AC gets real hot and there is air in the system you get what is called High Head Pressure and the high pressure switch will not let the clutch engage. Need to have the system evacuated and recharged.
