Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Defog and A/C don't seem to work fully.

In the winter, my defog doesn't seem to work too well. It doesn't seem to defog my windshield while I drive. In the summer, my air conditioner doesn't seem to work too well. It does blow out cool air, but it doesn't seem to cool as well as I expect. Is this normal or do I need my climate control to be repaired?

It sounds like the system is fried. Based on the description, it is just pulling in the outside air and not doing anything to heat or cool the flow. Unfortunately, this is a job for your preferred mechanic.

Which fuse box on the 2011 Chevy Malibu is the fuse for the rear defrost

Fuse box rear , fuse #23 30 amp ! Do you know where this is located ? There is also a relay for the Rear window defogger , located in the same rear fuse box .
Fuse Block - Rear
Left side of the luggage compartment, behind the left rear wheel well . But you really need to know how it works , you can check fuse an relay .
Rear Window Defogger Operation
Battery positive voltage is supplied through the BATT 1 fuse in the underhood fuse block to the rear defog relay switched input. When the rear defog switch button is pressed, the body control module (BCM) energizes the rear defog relay by providing a B+ to the control circuit of the rear defog relay. This allows battery positive voltage from the relay switched input through the switch contacts and out the relay switched output to the rear window defogger grid. The HVAC control module houses the rear defog switch and also illuminates the rear defog indicator on the switch button, upon this request. Ground for the rear window defogger grid is provided by G301 for the Sedan or G302 For the Extended Sedan.

Battery drain

Remove the negative battery cable, connect an amp meter in series, between lead and battery terminal, should have a reading of approx 0.05 amp (Time Clock). If higher, then there is a drain, remove the fuses one at a time and watch for a drop on the amp meter. when it does you have found the circuit giving trouble. I would expect a reading of about 8 amps if it's the defog causing the problem. You could try taking the defog switch out first to see if that's the problem.

There are 2 Plugs that go into the REAR Defrost. If one of them is off, then it will not work. If you broke the Electrical Track, then it needs to be repaired... They sell kits to do this at your local Automotive Repair Stores... Time consuming but easy to do.

The A/C is suppose to come on in the winter. It runs when you have the defrost on to quickly defog windows. It likely cold because it needs the freon level topped off.
