Question about Chevrolet Suburban 1500

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Chevy Suburban. It has a dual air conditioning system. Everything works fine,except the front high switch, making it a slow cooling process in 90 degree,bumper to bumper, weather. Does just the blower switch need replacing! The mechanics I ask don't seem to know for sure,telling me all they can do is start replacing parts to the tune of $300 to $1000. Seems kind of steep to me. Thank you for your help!

Sounds like the blower motor resistor. It should be mounted close to the blower motor. The blower motor resistor may run around $50.00, you may need to replace the plug, dealer item, around $60-70. Shouldn't be $1000.

1999 suburban front blower stopped working


More than likely your blower motor resister went bad, that is what regulates the fan speeds

1999 Chevy Suburban stuck in 4wd


Hi Dale, Sometimes the front diff becomes wound up. I am not saying this is the problem with your vehicle but what I'm about to suggest may work as it often does with other four by fours. Make sure you have a clear space to drive the vehicle backwards and forwards at a slow speed. As you do so select the two high position on the selector. You may need to reverse and go forward several times. Hope it works for you. Regards John

Our front ac is not working and back is cold in our 1999 GMC suburban, we tried putting freon and it didn't work


Dual zone front/rear ac systems have 2 evaporator cores. And 2 orifice tubes, which are just inline
filters. Either your front evaporator core or orifice tube is probably stopped up.

Sometimes you can get to the evaporator cores without removing them from the vehicle, and clean it.
Evaporator cores do get stopped up sometimes, because the blower motor pulls in air with dust and debris from outside, and the air is cooled when it passes through the evaporator core.

But evaporator cores are a nightmare to replace, you usually have to remove lots of stuff under the dash and lots of stuff under the hood to remove them.

2001 chevy suburban air conditioning does not cool, refrigerant level is good and compressor is working.


sounds like your system is still low on freon. Is your ac line cold that comes out of the compressor? If so what is your high and low side readings? should be looking for aprox 50 low and 200 high side

I have a 99 chevy suburban that won't cool past 60 degrees and when idling is at 70 degrees. I have replaced the a/c compressor, orfice tube,the accumilator,rear expension valve, and fan clutch. My low...


These numbers are a little high depsite the high ambient conditions.Amazingly enough ,automotive low side suction pressure will equal the degrees its putting out at the evaporator coil...for instance,70 psi low side pressure will produce about 70 degrees of cooling. At 300 psi on the high side(which is high) this is about as low as the suction pressure will go....you need it to go lower.I would probably be concerned with the freon level as a slight overcharge could boost these numbers.Poor air flow through the condenser can also create a higher head pressure than desired.If possible,I would evacuate and re-charge the system with the correct amount of 134a refrigerant. Try to get those pressures lower...about 250/50 would be a decent pressure value in this ambient condition.Verify good airflow through the coils and pay close attention to any foreign debris like plastic grocery bags or wrappers covering the coils...Ive even seen these make their way between the small gap between the condenser and radiator so use a light and inspect carefully for this.Air flow through that condenser coil is vital and any deficit there will create high head pressure which obviously causes high suction pressures....good luck

1991 chevy g20. 5.7l v8. air conditioning does not work. the blower and switches seem to work fine but it does not cool and only blows out of defrosters.


Blowing out of the defrost is a vacuum problem. You have a leak between the motor and the heater controls. Most likely needs to have the A/C system charged up.

Rear a/c not blowing cold, front works fine.


you may not have enough refrigerant. a low charge can cause the rear in this dual system to not work for beans. charge with a can of uv and find the leak. fix the leak. evac the system and recharge. i think you take 4 lbs, but check the accumulator sticker. you may want to just change the accum at the same time.
