Inside cab blows out hot air controls are off but air still comes out


OUTSIDE AIR: Press this button to direct the system to use outside air.
Pressing the OUTSIDE AIR button will cancel the RECIRCULATION button.

RECIRCULATION: Press this button to limit the amount of outside air entering your vehicle.
This is helpful when you are trying to limit odors entering your vehicle or attempting to quickly cool down the interior. Pressing RECIRCULATION will recirculate air continuously.

RECIRCULATION is used when the fan control is OFF to limit odors, outside air and dust from entering your vehicle. All button lights will go off. The last setting selected will activate when the blower is turned back on.
Pressing the RECIRCULATION button will cancel the OUTSIDE AIR button. To return to normal operation and to prevent stale air, be sure to return the OUTSIDE AIR.

Between HEATER and BLEND mode, outside air is forced to reduce window fogging. If the RECIRCULATION button is pressed, the LED indicator will flash three times indicating that forced outside air is activated and RECIRCULATION is not available.

I think what your experiencing is normal. If you want to keep cold air form coming into the cabin, press the recirc button.

I hope this helped, icon_e_biggrin.gif

How to retrieve DTC:
The heater control panel has self-diagnosis function. To run the self-diagnosis function, do the following:
1.Turn the blower fan OFF.
2.Press and hold the recirculation control switch and the rear window defogger switch down.
3.Turn the ignition switch ON (ll).
4.Release both switches. The recirculation indicator and the rear window defogger indicators come on. The recirculation indicator goes off 3 seconds later and the A/C indicator comes on, then the self-diagnosis will begin. About 10 seconds later, the self-diagnosis will finish and the A/C indicator goes off.
- If any trouble is found, the recirculation indicator blinks the diagnostic trouble code (DTC) to indicate a faulty circuit or component.
- If the system is ok, the recirculation indicator stays off.

- In case of multiple problems, the recirculation indicator will indicate only the DTC with the least number of blinks.
- In case of an intermittent failure, the heater control panel will store the DTC until the ignition is turned off.

A/c recirculating light comes on when i first start up the 2004 gmc yukon xl will not go off until recirculating switch is pushed. Sometimes comes right back on and u have to reset it again


{: ) Just let it be as this behavior is part of normal operation. Observe for a while. Check again your mode settings, should not be in defrost or defog mode when recirc is requested. The recirc function is available only in face or bi-level mode.
If the recirculation switch is pressed into the ON position when the mode switch is in an unavailable mode position, then the recirculation switch LED will flash 3 times. If the HVAC control module detects a fault with the recirc door the HVAC control module will try to drive the actuator for a predetermined amount of time, to outside air, which is the defaulted position for the recirculation actuator.
Try settling on the face and bi-level mode. You can manually turn on or off the recirc function and observe some air change on the vents. When recirc is off (light off) outside air will also enter and it will mix with the cold air inside if your a/c is on.
The HVAC system also monitors the inside and outside temperature sensors and uses these inputs to control the opening or closing of the recirculation door. If the outside temp is colder, it may not allow recirc off, sometimes it may not even allow a/c function. You may also have a sticking door or failing actuator. If any of the approaches above doesn't come out well, you may proceed for a scan tool diagnostic test to be sure, if your HVAC system does have a trouble.

When i press the ac button it blinks three times but does not turn on. 2007 Tahoe LT


If your vehicle is equipped with automatic climate control, this should help.

Recirculation Operation
The HVAC control module controls the air intake through the recirculation actuator. The recirculation switch closes the recirculation door in order to circulate the air within the vehicle. The outside air switch opens the recirculation door in order to route outside air into the vehicle. Regardless of the blower motor switch position, recirculation is available only in the panel and bi-level mode switch positions. Including the OFF position. The mode switch must be placed in either the panel or bi-level position before the blower motor switch is placed in the OFF position. In order to reduce windshield fogging, outside air is circulated when the mode switch is in the defrost or defog positions. If the recirculation switch is pressed into the ON position when the mode switch is in an unavailable mode position, then the recirculation switch LED will flash 3 times. If the HVAC control module detects a fault with the recirc door the HVAC control module will try to drive the actuator for a predetermined amount of time, to outside air, which is the defaulted position for the recirculation actuator

Ac only recirculates won't let out side air in cab 98 q 30 infini


are you sure..???.. MAX air recirculates, recirculated a/c usually only works when MAX is selected. the door is behind the glove box, sometimes you can hear the air change pitch. try it on high blower, turn the max on and off (give it a couple seconds) and see if you can tell if it changes.

My recirculation button light turns on, does not blow out hard air anymore though. just stopped about 5 months ago.


The recirculation door is most likey stuck. You should be able to see the door if you take the cowl and wirers off. If it's stuck the actuator or the door is binding. Hope for the actuator not the door. If the door stuck then you have to remove the dash

Air conditioning switch goes off and on while recirculating air


If I understand correctly the A/C light goes on and off. If so, try to gently push the switch to the side(Not in) while the A/C is on. If this keeps the system working, you need a new control assy(Complete control head)

Max air button does not respond


"MAX" ONLY puts the climate control in the RECIRC mode. Door modes change to " RECIRCULATE" interior cabin air back to be RE-COOLED, instead of using HOT OUTSIDE air to cool. If the problem is in the panel, complete replacement is required. Hope this helps
