Question about 2003 Chevrolet Impala
I have a 2003 Impala. The Climate Control right and left knobs won't light up. The temperature control levers won't light up either. The outside air button, recirculation button and A/C buttons will light up. The rear window defogger button never lights up. Turning on the rear window defogger (it works) causes the outside air button light, recirculation button light, and A/C button lights to go off. I have checked all the fuses in the driver's side and passenger side instrument panel fuse blocks and they are OK. What could be the problem?

THE bulbs are not replaceble supposed to replace the whole control head. not the brightest idea i know but that is how gm designed it. if you know how to solder you might can pull apart and find some bulbs that solder in and repair it.I have never tried this, the bulbs are soldered onto the board

check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

with a dual climate control system, it is imperative for a proper refrigerant charge to be maintained. the symptom you describe is a possible indicator of low charge on the system. the ac evaporator core is closest to the right side of vehicle thereby making air feel cooler on that side, on the left side of the vehicle the cooled air has farther to travel and warms up from cabin air before it discharged from the vents. this is the most probable issue for your vehicle...however if the charge is accurate, the issue would be more so in the air temperature doors which is located deep inside the dash...i hope this helps...good luck!

No it can not.
You have a couple of actuators that have gone out. The driver temp control. And the air inlet actuator.
And I don't fallow your statment of "my a/c blower went completely out. I tested the blower and it works fine".
If the blower went out, then what do you mean it works fine? Are you talking about air delivery or it just quits blowing all together?

I suggest you invest in a 1 year subscription to www.alldatadiy.com It is what I used when I disassembled the dash on my car, and is way better than a paper manual. Another tip is to keep some zip lock bags, and a sharpie handy, and seperate and label all hardware that you remove to help your reassembly
