The actuator has gone bad and will need to be replaced. Most of the time the actuator it self is good, just the electrical connection on the actuator it self is gummed up with the grease GM used and can not give the control unit the location of the actuators door.

When you re-set the actuator, it get's lost and and does not know if it's open or closed. Start with simple removing the driver's side actuator and cleaning out the internal connections, once inspected and you do find that it's damaged. Then replace the actuator after you have determined that it's not a faulty connection from having to much grease in the actuator.

Thank you for using fixya and keep us posted.

Hi:) There is a brown wire with a singal black connector in the wiring harness under the brake booster that goes up behind the engine on the drivers side to the distributor area.You disconnect this wire to disengage the computer timing auto adjustment. Set the timing to 0.deg and turn off engine before reconnecting brown wire. Computer will automaticly set the timing.

This 2005 suburban has dual controls and the passenger's air vents puts out warm air while the driver's side puts out cold air. The temperature controles are both set at 60 degrees. any idea?

The way G.M. designed this system is if the a/c system is low on r134a, the passenger side is disabled to allow driver comfort. When the system gets too low it will shut down a/c all together. Another problem could be faulty interior temp sensor on right side of dash, or stuck blend door/servo motor in a/c box under dash. Programmers are also known to fail.

I accidentally put the key to our second car half way into the ignition to our 2005 chevy suburban. I immediately took it out, but when I went to start it, the key will go in, but will absolutely not turn...

Yes. Turn your key to the on position and leave it. You will see the display flashing security in the instrument panel. leave the key in the on position for approximately ten minutes till the security light stops flashing. Then try to start it. If it does not start. Immediately turn the key back to the off position and turn it back to the on position and repeat the ten minute process. It may take up to three ten minute cycles to reprogram your key to the antitheft system. Make sure your battery doesnt go dead during the process or it will not work. To make your headlights stay off. press down on the parking brake pedal this will keep your headlights off while the key is on.

Driver Heated Seat 03 Suburban

The most likely failure point is the driver heated seat elements. They probably have excessive resistance and once they warm up a little they short out the module and it defaults to not working. I would recommend replacing both upper and lower driver seat elements.
