Question about 2006 Hummer H3
I have a 2006 H3 and I just noticed red fluid leaking from the front end yesterday after leaving it on while I ran inside the house but it was idle for about 15 minutes(does it matter how long I leave my truck idle?); however, today there is no leak. I did hear a strange hissing or whistling like sound when I accelerated. Is this something to be concerned about?
Most likely one of the transmission cooling lines which go from the transmission to the side of one or the radiator expansion tanks has rusted through. It is making that noise because you are driving it with no transmission fluid in it. If you continue to drive it you will break the trasmission.

I brought my 2006 H3 in to the dealer for the same thing. My blower stopped working all together but it started as an intermittent problem. He said he had to replaced a diode or resistor either behind the switch on the dash that controls the fan or on the fan motor itself. Have not had a problem since but that was only about 4 months ago.

If you look in the owner's manual it will explain this. Happened to me a bunch of times, really embarassing. It is an additional anti-theft device . If the computer senses that the key is inserted improperly, or that it is not a perfect match for the code it has in its memory for your key, it shuts of the gas supply to your engine for approx. 10 minutes to defer theft. Still happens to me intermittently. Now only very rarely. Total pain. I cleaned my key..carefully, with WD40 and after drying put just a touch of graphite on the key and started the beast a number of times. My dealer didn't read the manual either. You must wait the full ten minutes before trying to restart....otherwise it never totally resets and (the first time this happened to me) you can sit there and fight it forever.
I don't have my owner'smanual handy to refer you directly to the proper pages, but its in there under theft deterent. Hope this helps......and that Hummer can provide aneasy fix for this.

Check the battery terminals real good.Make sure they are clean and tight.Check and see if any of the side terminals are leaking. As far as the blower motor.It is more than likely that the blower motor resistor is bad.It is located by the blower motor.Hope this helps.Good luck.

My 06 was leaking during rain also. It turned out to be the sunroof. There are two drain tubes in the front of the sunroof that run the water down the corners to the ground and two drain tubes that drain water out the back corners. The water would seep around the glass, which is expected, but both of the tubes on the front of mine were plugged, and the water would overflow behind the dash and fill my floorboards. If my H3 was leaning to the left during a storm then the drivers side would be full of water. If leaning right, then the passenger side. I had to open sunroof and blow compressed air into the drain holes to clear them, but be careful, too much air will separate tubes from sunroof and then you will have to remove the inside paneling around sunroof to get to tubes and reconnect. You may only have one side plugged. you can test it by opening sunroof and pour a little water in the small catch pan in the front of the sunroof and see if it drains as expected (to the ground under the firewall on left AND right side). You can see the holes in each corner of catch pan to drain the water. Plug one with your finger, then the other to find the plugged side. Good luck!! Hope this helps!!

I assume you've fixed this already given that nearly a year has passer by, but if others experience this, it may help them. Under the dashboard on the passenger side there is a Fan Blower resistor attached to a red connector with 5-7 colored wires. Its held in by two simple screws. Disconnect the connector and inspect it for any burn marks(usually the last orange wire at the end). If this is discolored go to the nearest GM dealer and by about $70 worth of parts. The blower resistor, the red harness connector and the clips that go into the connector. Job takes under an hour and would be rated at novice-intermediate. Advice: set the passenger chair back as far as possible. Remove the harness clips carefully so as not to break them. For more workspace you can easily pull out the plastic facia on the right hand side, it easily slips out from under the foot rail, do not be intimidated there are no hidden screws. There is also a relay down there; a small black box held in by one screw, you might as well change this while you're down there. A dealer may charge as much as $400 for this simple fix!
