Yes it is the switch. You have to pull the radio then the outer trim panel then the eltronic control assembly it is only a 30 .00 part but a pain to do

Switch prolly not bad but you might wanna look into your heater control valve. valve not closing and letting the hot coolant fill your heat exchanger rather than recycling it back to the cooling system. The heat is over powering your a/c system and you're only getting a bit of cooling when you have the a/c on max. try it out

Why is my AC compressor running when my temperature control is set to heat, fan control set to 2, AC control switch off and air flow control set for floor?


If you have an automatic climate system where you can set temp the the compressor will run at some of the middle settings. The system blends cold and warm air to obtain the desired temp setting. If it does not have automatic control you have another issue.

Tip

Climate control settings,on all vehicles


When using the ac on a hot summer day,or a mild spring day,the compressor runs all the time.If you set it to low,and turn the temp to cold or toward the warmer side,lets say cool,then the ac compressor runs also,it just cycles,on,and off.No matter what setting you are using on your ac control,the ac compressor stays on,using fuel.Get the most out of your ac,while it uses your fuel,to keep you comfortable.All vehicles have a MAX setting,or a recirculate setting.Always use this setting.I say,always use this setting,not only that,but use this setting.I stress this because you are pulling in air ,from the out side,that is warming the evaporator,and making the ac work harder to give you comfort.In the hot ,hot summer,the settings MAX,and recirculate,keep the air that is in the vehicle,in the vehicle.It recirculates the air,instead of bringing hot air inside the vehicle ,and bringing the temp,up,to a warmer temp.A lot of people don`t even know that this is on the control,or don`t know what it is for.Some times the recirculate button,or dial,will have a picture that looks like a C,but squared off at the corners.So folks,get more out of your vehicles cooling and heat system.Yes ,this will work on heat also,maybe not defrost,but on some cars,it will work.

From time to time the AC on a 50 mile commute the airflow will lower to almost nothing and air temp increase while the blower noise sounds resisted. I can exit the interstate and start back up and the...


i dont know if you have a cabin air filter if you do replace it if its real dirty. most cars ac will have this problem if the ac is low on freon. when you check the freon. make sure the ac is on max ac, at its coldest setting with the fan on max. with the engine running check ac pressure. have someone hit the gas a little & see if the pressure drops. add as needed. most gauges from the parts store have a dial on the front. point it at outside temp & make sure pressure is the max for that range.

Air will only blow on floor no matter where i set the dial and is only warm this is a 2005 trailblazer


May be the heater/AC control unit in the dash.The heat stays on the floor because the door actuater moter is not switching direction of air flow and as far as the warm air,if you engine is up to operating temp,then the heater control valve is not opening fully.Both are conected to the heater/AC control unit.

Clicking sound from A/C


the clicking is caused by a part called a temperature control ac/heater blend door actuator motor, most likely the door it moves is sticking and the little gear drive inside the part is clicking.

if it was a vacuum leak it would not do it intermittently, first you should replace your blower motor resistor to correct the only working on high fan speed and the reevaluate the a/c it could be affecting the climate control

You need the AC mode/function switch to be replaced, it controls the different modes the AC/Heater are set to and where the air goes within the air ducts..
