2005 chevy silverado steam through air vents

Last 2 days "steam" has been coming through my air vents just in the mornings on my way to work, it only lasts a few minutes and its NOT when Im idling just driving around 55-60mph down the highway. First day it happened when I had the ac off but just the fan blowing with the outside air coming in (so I assumed it was bc of that) but today I had the AC running and it did it again. There is not smell to it, What could this be?

Probably fog.
Either the ac is not draining onto the ground, or the system is cutting on and off too much, or its not letting in enough fresh air. The fog would be from moisture inside the hvac box.

99% chance it is the blower resister located behind glove box. Squeeze glove box in and pull out.
The resistor is right behind it, dealer part cost less then $20.
Dodge has had this problem for over ten years and until recently did nothing. Now they combine fuse with resistor, suppose that will correct it?

SOURCE: i can smell a burning smell after my car has been

Not sure what the make and model is for this car. But if there is no evident signs of antifreeze leaks, fill cooling system, squeeze top and lower hoses, check to ensure all air is removed, run engine for 15-20 minutes. If you can find a radiator shop have the system and cap pressure tested. Last but not least if the smelling of anti-freeze continue, you probably have a head gasket leaking coolant inside the cylinders. You can also look for a green tint on the spark plug indicating that fluid is being burnt.

SOURCE: ac does not blow cold at idle... ac condenser fan

that seems to be the problem. If the fan does not turn on when the a/c is turned on it could be a fuse, relay, control box, or just a bad fan. Try connecting the fan directly to see if it works. Does this car have 2 fans? normally all the small cars have 2 fans one for the engine cooling and one to assist the first when the a/c is turned on. Without the fan pulling air through the a/c condensor the had pressure goes up high enough to shut off the a/c compressor. It also causes some cars to run warmer than usual when stopped. Check the a/c condensor for blockage also which doesn't have anything to do with your fan not working.

SOURCE: the drivers side AC vents

More than likely the problem is with one of the blend doors or its actuator motor inside the HVAC unit in the dash. The repair involves a partial disassembly of the dash to access the parts. This definitely not a thermostat issue.

What to do when air conditioning vents on 2005 chevrolet silverado1500/v6 ?


It is all electronic these days an electric motor is controled by the selector on the dash. Remove the dash surround: gear selector in 1st engine off, tile steering wheel down, push down FIRMLY on the top of surround and pull towards you and off it comes. Remove the two screws that hold the heater/air cond. control in, there are 4 plastic clips as backup release them and gently remove the control, inspect for loose connectors (there are 2) it helps to run the blower to see if you have found the problem- I did.

1995 chevy silverado heater blower blows but cant feel any air no where


Possible that the vent is blocked or there is fault in the vent selection. You need to remove the blower unit and check the area of the distribution hose.
make sure that the selection panel control works or this can prevent the air to be blown out.

Ac not cooling well - noticed 2 days ago steam coming out of ac vents.


That was probably not steam but escaping freon coming from the vents. Probably the best course of action would be to take it to an AC repair shop.
