Climate control stopped operating overnight during below freezing
Climate control was operating ok until the car was left for a few nights in below freezing temperatures. On starting the car the control panel was non operational, I checked the fuse and this seemed ok. Has anyone experienced this and what was the solution>
Re: Climate control stopped operating overnight during...
Well last night I went under the hood, opened the fuse panel and removed the "Memory"/Audio fuse, in my car it was yellow and only pulled up, not out, it was a "20". I left it out for a few min, pushed the fuse back in and everything is fine now, just have to reset my clock.

First, make double sure that there is nothing left on that would drain your battery. Secondly, if you have ANY doubts about the integrity of your battery (even if it tests out O.K. at your local parts store), replace it.. Myself, if my vehicle ever fails to start correctly , I get a new battery. In the long run, poor batteries are the most expensive batteries you can have. Batteries can also have an intermittent internal problem that cannot always be detected by testing. My opinion, in a nut shell is that you need to replace your battery.
Just got an answer from Chevy Dealer. When you replaced the battery it loses its memory as to where the door actuators were (the flaps that control the heat and A/C).
The fix: Turn everything off and let the car sit overnight. The computer should reset itself during its learnings process. In the morning turn on the ignition and let the car run for a few minutes before turning on the climate control.
If this doesn't work, plan on 1-1.5hours of labor for a technician to reset the actuators at the dealership.
Hi ....... Sounds alot like you have a grounding problem on your HT leads (central one from coil esp'ly). At night when it's dark open the bonnet/hood and start the engine. Look for any sparking or arching from plug leads, coil or ignition box. Stop engine. Find where your leads come from, four will come from a central point and make sure all conections are tight. Even remove and look for corrosion, only take off one at a time to avoid confusion and when you're happy that they're OK buy some WD40 and spray near coil and over leads and allow to dry off. This will help to prevent moisture to penetrate and will cure the problem short term.
Let us know the outcome.
Check your cooling system for antifreeze. Also check for any leeks from the radiator, hoses and water pump. If they all check out to be alright check or replace the water tempreture sensor. Hope this helps to solve the problem.
