Question about 2006 Chevrolet Equinox

2 Answers

I have a chevy Equinox 2006. The blower (in the cabin) was working on and off for the last few months. I took it into the dealership and it happened to be working when I took it in (never fails!) and they said they couldn't find anything wrong. I took it to my mechanic today (the fan hasn't been working for 4 days) and he "thinks" it's something with the body control module...anyone?? It doesn't work on any speed...it's dead...

It could be the blower control unit/module, the motor could be completely gone even though it has different speeds, the motor may not respond to turn on. Not sure what or how your mechanics checked these problems out but it sounds like your mech. is on the right track. He really needs to find out the ohms and voltage to and from the motor and control unit to see where the power stops or not receiving any power.

There's a relay under the dash on passenger, tell him to check that, also the blower motor resister, screw into the housing next to the blower motor, has 8 wires going to it. body control module NO.

I have a 2006 chevy equinox thats ac will blow air then stop or not blow air at all when i turn it on.I have changed the climate control switch and the resistor and i have jumped the blower moter and it...


We had this same issue for months and took it to several non-dealership places hoping for a cheaper fix, no one could find an answer. For us, it would blow, then not blow. You could clearly hear it trying to blow and sometimes it would even spit white particles out of the vent. We finally took it to the dealership and they updated some software on it and it completely fixed the problem. I beleive the software upgrade was under $150.00. Good luck!

I need to replace a chevy equinox blower motor and resistor wiring harness and I can't find one and I need help with the replacement


I assume you already tried to buy the part through GM Parts or a dealership but as far as helping out with the replacement I would suggest Alldatadiy.com. I subscribed to a 5-year subscription for the Chevy Equinox manual for $30 as apposed to several hundred for the actual shop book. It has helped me out a lot with my replacements.

Where is the filter on the a/c of a 2006 chevy equinox


Behind the glove box. Open the glove box, there is a small hook that holds the glove box in place, swing this hook out of the way and it will drop out of place and the cabin air filter should be right behind it.

Where and how to change cabin filter chevy equinox


Hiya...the cabin air filter is located below the front passenger/windshield area.
It's only accessible by standing outside the Equinox with the hood open.
Here's how to do it...(before you pop open the hood)

1) Stand outside at the front-right door area.
2) Just below the front windshield area, pull up a few small black plastic clips that's on the black windshield wiper cowl area- a small flat screwdriver or a special clip-remover tool is handy.
3) Raise the hood up.
4) There may be a triangular-shaped hard foam sound damper at the left side nearby the hood hinge...pull it off if it allow you to work around it with ease.
5) Continue to find a few black plastic clips around the black windshield wiper cowl area.
6) Gently pull up the black windshield wiper cowl cover with care not to bend it too hard during removal.
7) You should see the cabin air filter inside that's held in place by a black rectangular box inside.
8) There's 2 black tabs that holds the cabin air filter in place.
9) Insert your finger or tool to pry the cabin air filter away from the tabs.
10) Remove old cabin air filter.

Remember to reinstall the clip parts back into place when you're finished.

2006 Equinox water in spare compartment and wet backseat carpet!


I am going threw the same situation with the leaking water under the front dash and standing water in the carpeting causing mold..... also i had a leak in the back hatch causing standing water in the spare tire hold. Just took it to the dealership and its a sealant leak, apparently its common in 2006 Equinox's. Mine is costing $850 to fix the seals, but would be $2000 to do the seals and carpet. My partners' dad is going to replace my carpeting, but i am having the dealership fix the seal leaks.
