Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

No heat or air blowing on my 2005 Chevy Impala

Hello! For a while, the heater or air conditioner would come on sometimes and would do nothing sometimes. Now, nothing at all happens. No deftrost, no flow at all. The common opinion of the laymen in my life say it is probably a faulty heater blower motor. Could that be the case? If so, is it a tricky repair? Any troubleshooting ideas to diagnose the cause?
Thank you!

    no heat out of my vents

  • cbaracosa Jan 06, 2009

    Well, mine is a 2005 Chevy Tahoe. I have the same problem. I took it in today and they were gonna charge $350 to fix it. They said is was the blower resistor and connector (harness). I'm finding that this problem is not limited to any specific Chevy model. It's actually GM-wide. There is a problem with the harnesses melting. Funny thing is that the motor blower is covered under my extended warranty, but not the resistor or connector. Go figure.

    I have had the same issue with my 2005 Chevy Duramax 2500HD. The third resistor has went out. Like others it melts it. A common issue with these it that the blower motor needs to be replaced, becuase GM/Chevy is finding that the blower motor has too much resistance and therefore burning out the resistor.

    My 2005 Chevy Impala's heater stopped working. I took it in to get fixed. I was told it was the blower motor. It costed me $325 total to have it replaced. I have never had a Chevy before and never will again. I had a Buick LeSabre that was over 10 years old before the heater and any other problems happened to it. Also Fords. No more Chevys.

    My girlfriend bought a 05 impala 6 months ago since then her speedometer gauge went out and cost 500 clams to fix at a dealership. Now we are dealing with no heat, first I changed the thermostat, then pretty much blocked off the whole radiator with cardboard. This did bring the water temp up but it is still blowing cold air. I think the blower motor resistor is the next step, I had the same problem on my 02 pontiac grand prix, and changed the resistor and walla it was fixed. It was kinda a pain to change though at least 2 hours.

As new as your vehicle is I doubt the motor is bad. I would suggest that you change the blower motor resistor first.They are relatively inexpensive and usually the problem on newer cars.

Seems like you have a stuck thermostat. The lack of heat is from the lack of the thermostat opening preventing flow to the heater core.

Heater does not work on my 2005 chevy impala ls but the blower does but blows cold air

If you car is coming to temp but you get nothing from the heater the first place to look is the coolant valve for the heater core. It is sometimes called a mixing control. See if the control is jammed or your control cable is frozen or disconnected from this valve.

The valve should be somewhere near the cooling lines leading into the heater core. I am sorry, but they may be under the dashboard as well.

Good luck and be careful.

My 2005 chevy impala blows heat on the passenger side and cold air on the drivers side. Please help! I have tried disconnecting the power fuse for ten minutes to recalibrate and nothing.

I have the same issue with my 2005 chevrolet impala. I took it to the shop and its the dual module control out on the driver side which will cost anywhere from $300.00 to $500.00 to get fixed.

2005 Chevy Impala driver's side heat blows cold, but works on passenger side. Was told a vent is probably not opening to allow for the heat to get to the driver's side? Where can I locate this vent? a drivers side air flow actuator at a auto parts place for dual zone heating/cooling.
(NAPA etc will have it.....or the dealer)
Open the glove compartment.....all the may have to take the screws out at the bottom......look in at the heater assembly....look over to the will see the two air flow actuators.
Look at the part you have and match it to the part on the heater assembly.
The actuator that is closest to the engine is the drivers side control.
Replace it.
Try your controls and check for heat and cooling on both sides.
The stepper motor in these actuators goes bad on quite a few...but over look have a great car,good for many miles of trouble free driving.

I drive a 2005 chevy impala.. everytime i turn on the heater and the driver's side blows out cold air and the passenger side blows out heat.. can you please tell me what is wrong

Do you have separate drivers side and passenger heat controls?
If you do have this system,the common problem is the control unit s on the heater/a/c assembly. Can you adjust heat and cooling on one side?
Then the other side control unit is most likely bad.

No heat in 2005 Chevy Impala,,,,air worked fine all summer, blower works, just no heat on drivers side and minimal heat on passenger side....this car is nothing but problems

GM Yuck! I'm surprised you haven't had a bad anti-theft system yet!

No heat is due to a bad heater core. Or the flap that directs the air inside the venting gets stuck in one position and you have to tear apart the whole dang thing to get to it.
