No I haven't but if we think of how things do when they get cold, they contract and when they get warm they expand, do you think it could be contracting and pushing enough to cause it to make the circuit to make the horn operate when it gets cold. Just a thought of mine.

Chevy 2005 tahoe z71 blows cold air in back but hot air in front


Just got an answer from Chevy Dealer. When you replaced the battery it loses its memory as to where the door actuators were (the flaps that control the heat and A/C).

The fix:
Turn everything off and let the car sit overnight. The computer should reset itself during its learnings process.
In the morning turn on the ignition and let the car run for a few minutes before turning on the climate control.

If this doesn't work, plan on 1-1.5hours of labor for a technician to reset the actuators at the dealership.

Good luck.

2001 Silvarado 2500 Hd the temperature control switch does not control temp; it just blows very hot. The A/C does not seem to kick in with the switch tuned on to make the temperature even a little cooler....


If it seems to blow even hotter air when the A/C is on then yes you have a leaking A/C system. It will still activate because it isn't empty yet. Another possibility is the temp door actuator isn't closing to the cold position. When you turn the fan off or to low, adjust the temp from full hot to full cold (just with key in run position, not with engine running). Look up at the heater control box on the drivers side just above the gas pedal, and you should see a white triangular plastic box. You should hear the actuator move or even see the rod in center of box turning. If not the actuator is faulty.

1998 cadillac, the horn just went off 3am in the morning, would not stop..until I pushed on the steering wheel part of the horn..car was locked..I had to get out of bed to stop it! WHY WOULD IT JUST GO...


I have a 1977 Cadillac Seville and it does the same thing, and when the outside temperature drops below 65 degrees the horn will sound continuously until either the horn relay or the horn fuse is removed.

The problem is in the horn pad on the steering wheel, and the contact plates inside of the horn pad are too close together (a manufacturing defect) and when the temperature drops down to a certain degree then the horn pad will contract and cause the metal contact plates inside of the horn pad to touch and make contact, and it is same thing as if you were pushing on the horn pad.

I have also heard of the exact opposite happening and when the temperature gets too hot the horn pad will expand and cause the metal contact plates to touch and make contact and activating the horn.

Ever find out what to do with this? I'm running into the same problem and see multiple refrences to it, but not much for follow up on what fixed it. I pulled the fuse for mine, but it kills the trunk release and automatic locks...so I'm not a big fan of that.

Can't pump gas into tank when the outside temp is below freezing


That is an issue I have never heard before, but I would pour some gas line antifreeze into your tank. It sounds like you have some trapped water in the tank.
