Question about 2006 Chevrolet Equinox
I have a 2006 chevy equinox ls and today while driving to work I looked down to see how late I was and the display wasn't working. All the buttons work but the display screen just shows a bunch of mumbo jumbo

Hiya...the factory-installed keyless remote control are installed in most Equinoxes IF SO equipped with this option that year.
However, it's difficult to get "true factory-installed" keyless feature in your Equinox ....but new 2008-2009 Equinoxes built this year now comes with standard keyless remote and yes, new option is remote STARTER feature (that option is identified by a black wire found inside the rear-right quarter window with thin metal line surrounding that interior window to receive signal from remote starter fob)
At least you can find after-market keyless remote control at your local retail store.

SOURCE: 2006 Equinox fan blower quit
I have had the same problem happen, but here's likely what it is:
Either the resistor has blown, the wiriing harness has fried, or both, - or - it is the blower motor that needs to be replaced.
In any case, here's how to do it:
Check the resistor, its the easiest thing to do first. On the passenger side, under the dash -- WAY UNDER, by almost to the back, there is a wire that goes into the resistor.
The resistor controls the speed of the fan that blows.
There are 2 small screws holding the resistor in, unscrew them and remove the resistor - it is about 3 inches long and 2 inches wide and has ceramic covering. Remove the wiring harness and check both - if resistor is black anywhere, its probably bad. If the wiring harness is melted, and it probably will be, then it needs to be replaced.
Search online for a "Blower Motor Wiring Harness", you'll have instructions on how to cut the wires, splice the new harness and reconnect it. Also you'll need to replace the resistor.
One from the dealer will run you about $150.00, but I got one on parts.com for $26.00 + $10.00 shipping.
If you find that the wiring is fine, then its probably the blower motor.
Underneath the passengers side dash is a panel that covers the blower motor. Remove it, and youll see the blower motor. It looks like a hamstercage, circular with groves throughout its perimiter.
There are four screws holding it in, unscrew them, remove the wiring harness and take out the motor. Theres ways to test to see if it is the motor thats bad, but it requires a multimeter and some familiarity of where you're poking around. A new one will cost you some cash, but I picked up a used on on eBay for about $20.
Replace that, and it should come back on.
The problem though, is most likely the wiring, since GM has already put out a TSB with this wiring problem, and has since replaced the harness with a new model.

SOURCE: Battery compartment?
The battery is supposed to be non-user servicable - it is on the divers side underneath the hood. There is a black plastic covering that you must remove. It will expose a pin which you use to jump start the car. Around that, you'll see 2 screws in a black plastic shell, remove that, and the battery will be exposed. You can replace the battery there.

from the service manual:
There is no onboard programming procedure for this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the keyless remote. Please go to the nearest GM dealer for assistance
