Question about 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

1 Answer

AC - turns on by itself

While driving and using the front AC, sometimes the rear AC turns on by itself. I turn the rear AC swith on then off and it does not resolve the problem. I have shut the truck off and the AC continues to run draining the battery, alos when it shuts itself off I have shut the truck off taken key from ignition and the rear AC turns on by itself. I don't believe in ghosts so what is the issue? Have there been recalls for this?

I drove about 5 miles with heat and when i pulled back into my drive way it was like someone turned the ac on. why?

The RPM while driving were higher than when you pulled into the Driveway.
Check and top off the Radiator Fluid. Low levels cause this fluctuation. Make sure the engine is cool. Remove the radiator cap. Turn the engine on and turn both the front and rear heater on high when filling. Make sure you use only straight Radiator Fluid (not mixed) in the Reservoir. Replace the cap before it reaches normal operation temperature.
Now check the heating inside with the van. Is it any better?
IF NOT: There maybe a problem with the thermostat, egine coolant temperature sensor, or with the Water Pump itself. I would start with the Thermostat replacement, followed by the Sensor, before replacing the Water Pump. Work $mall and up to Big to save you money.

Four wheel drive locking up in tight turn. loud clicking from front

Hopefully the CV joints have not been damaged, What you are experiencing is called torque bind, it happens when you drive on dry pavement in four wheel drive. Unless you have an all wheel drive system that has a way of allowing the front and rear wheels to slip or turn at different speeds, a standard four wheel drive system will destroy itself if it is used on a non slippery surface. Never drive on good traction surface unless you have selected 2WD, 4WD is only for snow, ice and gravel

On most vehicles with front and rear A/C, the two systems are basically independant of each other just sharing the compressor and condensor. It is possible that the Mode Door (controls where the air flow is sent; ie: windshield, vents, floor) is out of adjustment or sticking.
