disconnect the battery and locate and remove the fuseblock under the hood, make sure that all connections to the fuse/relay sockets underneath, are pushed fully up, secure them, rebolt the fuseblock, reconnect the battery. if its not a defect in the fuseblock design, then you have either a major wiring harness problem, or a really odd, and unlikely, computer glitch

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

AC recirculation is not working (outside temp is -37 degree centiigrade).


there is a damper that opens and closes to allow air to recirculate or come from outside. Find out where that is and check it out.

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.

A/C automatically switches from inside to outside air


Shut off the switches so that the auto and recirc lights are both out. If you use recirc in winter your car will remain fogged up.If you have NAV, go into the climate control touch screen and shut off the ac or auto mode there as well.

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

2005 Toyota Corolla air conditioner is cold but


The air flow does not 'increase' with the recirc button pressed. The fan motor blows at specific speeds, no matter whether fresh or recirc is selected. The recirc feature is there so that you do NOT admit 'fresh/hot' air from the outside into the AC box. In short, the recirc feature is to re-use, or, recirculate the existing air in the car. When it is properly working, on a hot day, the recirc selection should drop the internal temperature at the center air vent about 6 degrees lower than with the fresh selected.

Need to reset flashing instrument lights


Here's what i found is supposed to work.

1. Set blower to HIGH
2. Set mode position to PANEL (AC vent air)
3. Open all AC outlets
4. Temp. on full cold
5. Start engine
6. Push WASH and REAR WIPER switches for 5 seconds until all panel lights are on solid
System will then go through it's paces as it calibrates the climate controls
7. When calibration is complete only the REAR WIPER switch/light should be flashing. Press this switch to extinguish the light
and all should work normally.
