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?
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.
i would just get a used one off ebay. usually you can find the dash with the a/c amp(pushbuttons) and the display for around 40 bucks. they are separate units(display and amp), and are mounted with screws that go into the back of the dash panel. the dash panel is easy to remove, there are 2 anchor screws on either side of the steering column. right side is under a plastic cover, the other is under the rheostat, just carefully pry them out, and you will see the screws. then the whole dash part pops out. you will need to disconnect the harness's that plug into the back of the amp, then it all comes free. it might help to put the steering wheel in the lowest position.
Unfortunately the only way I can think of to fix this is to actually remove the Information Display(the LCD you are refering to) and check the voltages. This is easy if you are willing to spend the time to remove the dashboard to even reach it. If you do, you will need a volatge meter as well. I do have a reference chart for the voltages if you need it.
You can always take it to the dealer and have them replace it. Or a local mech which I recommended as I hate dealer mechs. Their protocol is to find defective part and replace, NOT repair so ends up being more costly.
