    There was a recall on the dashboard console switches (one unit) but our vehicle is not under

    warranty. Does that need to be replaced as it periodically does not make connection.

  • righttiming Sep 06, 2009

    We have been told that the switch is not a separate piece but is part of a whole unit that needs to

    be replaced at a cost $450 for a new or $225 for an after market unit. Is that correct or is there a cheaper solution?

    Thank you for your help. I will take this to my mechanic tomorrow.

The passage hoses that brings air to the vents are not well positioned.

Please let an expert handle this for you cos he might have to unscrew the dash almost completely.

So relax your mind as your car is alright and it is only the hoses that needs to be repositioned.

    I will rather advice you to get the new one. Because the old switch cannot be trusted and reliability cannot be adequately guaranteed.

    Sorry you might have to spend that much but it depends, if you feel the cheaper one will save you some cash. Feel free.

Heating, AC and vent problem

The actuator door that is behind the dash that closes off the heater core from shooting hot air thru the vents might be your problem. When you turn on your ac the actuator shuts the door to prevent the air from flowing thru the heater core into the cabin, this may be your problem if everything else is working properly. Let us know.

Ac vent problem

Damper/flap for driver's side is probably stuck. Try moving the selector from cold to hot several times. Also, move the recirc/outside air control if the previous doesn't work.

A/C issue with 99 Grand Prix

Check the ac filter, it might be dirty and thats why it is not blowing out enought cold air. The filter is located under the wiper cover but behind the firewall on the passengers side. You access this by lifting the hood and removing the rubber type gasket that holds both together, right on top of the blower unit.
