I have a 99 s10 blazer that has auto climate control issues. If I set the temp knob to 82 it blows hot for a minute and then cools off to lukewarm, but if you open the window it blows hotter then you can...


It sounds as if the climate control temp sensor is bad or may be too much resistance on that circuit. Too much resistance can cause the control head to read the signal wrong.

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix with a digital climate control system. The heat quit working, it doesn't blow out any heat. Now that it is warm outside the air stopped blowing out any air. The digital temperature on the climate control is not correct. When it states that it is below 30 degrees on the ext and it is warm outside the air wont be cold. Once it starts going above 30 degrees the air gets colder. Today the blower stop working all together. Was told it maybe the climate control unit was bad. You can hear the door opening/shutting when you switch the temp from cold to hot. But there was no heat blowing out whatsoever in the winter time. Could you please give me your opinion on whether or not it is the climate control unit or something else?

If the outside temp.sensor is reading -38 degrees then this is what is causing the compressor not to come on.You need to check the wiring to the outside temp.sensor and the sensor.Make sure it is connected.It is located on the front grill area.Between the grill and the bumper cover.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Air conditioner clutch will not engage. also my car has auto climate control and the external temp. light always reads 30 degrees.


That is why the A/C clutch is not coming on.If the temp is below 50 degrees the auto control will not allow the compressor to kick in to protect the compressor.You have to check the codes for the body control module.It should show a code for the outside temp sensor.You could have a bad sensor or wiring.If you disconnect it it should show -40 degrees.check wiring and connections.Hope this helps.Good luck.

WHen we use the auto car starter, it blows cold air, and a lot of it. Its nearing the winter here in New England and I need to know how to set up the starter to blow warm air. Any ideas?


Start the vehcle and let it warm up then set all the controls to heater? Then turn off the car. Use the remote start to start the vehicle and check the controls are still set to heat mode.

Climate control display for Outside temperature


Had the same problem, replaced the ambient air temp sensor in front of the radiator. Cost is like 10-15 bucks. Don't worry if temp doesn't change right away. Took me about 5 miles and then it worked great.
