Question about Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

I have a 2000 GMC Yukon. The air conditioner blows hot air in the front seat area, while blowing cold air to the back seats when the rear controls are turned on. Also, I opened up the bottom area, where the AC is routed through under the dash, and pulled out the 2 inner air filters. They were both very clogged. After doing this though, I still noticed that hot air was coming from the air around the exposed coils.

I have a simular problem in a 2002 Tahoe. It turned out being and actuator that controls a flap door that separates the air flow from the heat box. When this part goes bad the control knobs are useless is what they control don't work. According to my Chevy Dealer this is a common part to go bad. This part is located in the rear or the truck behind the passenger side wheel well on the inside of the truck. In this area is a system simular to the system that is in the dash. There is a heater core back there and this is where your rear heat comes from. The same as the front system in your dash. When this actuator fails it will be in the open position on the flap door that goes to the heater box. This more than likely is your problem. I currently have a 2004 Sierra. I have a simular problem again. There is 4 actuator door in my separated climate control system. I can't tell you which one is bad but I can tell you that more than likely this is your problem. You will have to get under the dash and notice which actuators move with your switches and which one does not. It will be a little black box. Maybe 1/2 thick and 3 inch by 2 inch estimated with a little round white piece of plastic that fits the arm that goes to these flap doors that direct the air to wherever your switches are telling it to. Price range from 50 to 150 bucks at your local parts store. Good Luck.

My gmc yukon 2000 slt rear ac blows hot air when i have ac . on and the front works fine .

I have a 2000 GMC Savana Van SLT with front and rear AC/Heat. My front would blow hot while the rear blew cold with AC on. It turned out to be low on Freon. It's hard to know if you have the right amount of freon installed because pressures vary depending on the ambient temperatures. So the best way is to remove all the freon then reinstall the recommended amount as listed on the evaporator housing near the firewall. This worked fine for me... works like new after installing the correct amount of freon.

Air Conditioner Problem

the most common problem here is a defective air temperature control blend door actuator, this is what moves the door that controls air flow across the heater core or the ac evaporator core, to replace this requires u remove the dash assembly.

Rear heat in 2004 gmc yukon blows only cold air when turned to heat. driver heated seat button lights up for only a few seconds and turns off.

I have a 2006 yukon and have had to replace the actuator in the rear heat/ac twice.  It moves a valve that closes the cold/hot ducts.  It is a cheap defective part/design.

Air conditioner in 1999 yukon

Had this problem myself. After a bunch of run around, it turned out to be just a line that was not properly sealed. I was told at the time that the control panel for the air conditioning system in the Yukon was known to go bad and that replacing it would fix the problem. Hope this helps

Yukon A/C, rear blows cold, front ducts a LOT warmer.

There is only one A/C system split into 2 zones. Check the blend door actuator, it may have failed in one position or something may be jamming it. Also check the control panel in the dash, My 98 yukon did the same thing, no matter what temp you selected for the front it would blow at about 70 degrees. There is a circuit board in the control panel that gets corroded and one of the circuits controls blend door operations. Have a look.
