03'Chevy TrailBlazer..rear ac don't work, rattling under truck

My AC was only blowing on #3 setting and I took it back to the dealer, they changed the resistor and now it blows on all the settings. The rear a/c is not working at all. The dealer said I have to bring it back up to them (cuz I had to have the truck back that day) that they had to figure out why the back isn't blowing. Any ideas what that problem can be? Also, there is a bad rattling under the truck, under my feet. I was thinking maybe the muffler was loose but the dealer said no. What could be loose and rattling under the truck around the area where my feet is?

    Why are you wasting money at the dealer , on a 7 year old vehicle ,vs. going to a local repair shop?

    Because I have a warranty that I paid for so I'm not wasting any money, just time. It's taken care of now. Thanks

When the dealer replaced your resistor, they probably unhooked the battery (naturally for safety). However, this can blow the actuators unfortunately, especially if it was set to on when they unhooked and rehooked the battery back up. Pretty common problem. The rattling very well could be your stabilizer bar end links. Grab a hold and try to wiggle, should be no movement. Pretty common for these to go out also. When replacing these, get new ones that are greasable with zirks. OEM's are not serviceable.

SOURCE: 03 Trailblazer Blower Resistor connector different

the resistor you bought is for manual heating, your three wire is more a module then a resistor. you need the module for the automatic heating system, automatic heating has a digital display and manual has sliders.

It could be a bad rear blower motor, or resistor? theres a lot under the truck that could make noise, have a repair shop check it and make repairs.

Rear ac blows in my 2004 Chevy trailblazer when vehicle is off. Front ac is off. What could be the problem? Just started after changed coil pack and hooked battery back up.

Turn everything, all switches, off then disconnect both battery cables and leave disconnected for 30 minutes. This resets PCM to defaults. Then reconnect ( + ) first then ( - ).

AC issues

The problem is either an actuator or the door associated with it. Sometimes the gear strips, especially when the system goes thru a recalibrate after power has been removed and reapplied. Below is a diagram of the locations of the actuators.

I have a 2004 chevy trailblazer. Car was stalling at light when I had the ac on. I cleaned out the throttle body. Everything was fine. Now the ac doesn't blow out of the top vents to your face. What...

The HVAC system may need to be recalibrated. Set all HVAC controls and switches to their OFF or CCW positions, then disconnect the battery for a few minutes. Reconnect battery and don;t touch any of the HVAC controls for 2 - 3 minutes.
If this does not fix the problem, you may have a stuck door or bad actuator in the HVAC system.

AC works fine at first then stops blowing thru dash vents and will only blow thru defrost and floor vents. this is an 02 chevy trailblazer. It this an expensive thing to fix?

It's most likely a vacuum line, look under your hood (close to the cowl panel) for a disconnected, cracked or broken vacuum line.

In some rear cases, it could be the vacuum switch (in dash). Or vacuum diaphragm (under dash).

Hope this helps you ???

The rear ac will only blow out hot air. the ac in the front of the car works fine.

there is a switch that controls a door that will let the heat or ac through. you will have to take the panels off in the very back drivers side. you will see a black box held by 3 screws with a arm that lets a lever slide. if you go to the rear control panel and change the temp you should see that lever move up and down. if not change that. you will have to get the part from a chevy dealer and it runs about 150.00. i hope this helps you out.

Replaced battery in 03 TB, now ac will not blow out the front ven

sometimes if you move the heat setting all the way to hot, then back to cold it will work. These have feedback motors on the mode doors and sometimes get confused.
