GM - Cars and Trucks with duel zone climate control

Most GM vehicles with separate driver side and passenger side heat and air conditioning can have problems with having heat on one side and cold on the other . The dealer has a computer that can calibrate these systems when the mess up to determine if it has a bad accuator or it's just lost memory. I worked for GM and read thru a test manuel and found that you don't have to have the computer to reset or test this system. If you disconnect the battery for 10 minutes then hook the battery back up , start the vehicle turn the fan switch to medium , do not touch any other part of the system , the climate control will go into a self calibration mode, wait untill it goes thru this self test mode, aproximately 2 to 3 minutes .During this mode you will feel and hear the accuators moving thru their ranges. After they stop changing postions now set your desired temperature for both sides if their is no hard faults (failed parts) the system will resume normal operation . If one or the other still does not blow the correct temperature replace that sides temp accuator repeat the self test mode and you should be fixed.This is a quick and easy way to test your own climate system with out paying the dealer their 100 dollar computer diagnostic fee.

My Maytag Neptune washer takes longer than usual to complete the cycle.


When the washing machine is working, takes an unusually long time to complete the cycle, that is not usually do to a control unit (CCU) fault, but to the fact that one condition needed to follow on the cycle is not met. The CCU may have to wait a longer time, and will not proceed to complete the cycle.

The most obvious thing to check are the water hoses, checking the drain hose and the inlets. If water is not coming with sufficient pressure, or if one of the hoses is blocked or kinked, the cycle time may take much longer than normal.

Other common problems are the pressure switch (SWITCH, PRESSURE), that detects water level, and the thermostat (on self heating models only).
The pressure switch determines when to stop filling and draining. If the pressure switch is faulty, then drain and filling may take much longer or go on forever.

Check also that water valve and dispenser valve are not clogged. (VALVE, WATER) and (DISPENSER VALVE )

On the water valve there may be a thermistor (not all models), check that the thermistor contact is not disconnected (WATER VALVE W' THERMISTOR) , as the thermistor may also be faulty.

The Officejet is stuck on SelfTest and stopped working

Self test is there to test the unit- do a self diagnosis and test the functions of the machine before it is operational, if it gets stuck at one of the test or one of the tests fail then the unit is inoperative until the fault is fixed.

What you can try is taking the power cord out from the unit while its stuck wait 2 minutes and plug it back in.

if the issue remains then there are 3 resets that you can try

partial reset
semi full reset
full reset

here are the partial reset instructions

the two other resets are, same as the partial reset but the 3 is replaced with a 6 for semi full reset and 9 for a full reset.

if the problem remains after this then you have a hardware problem, take it to a repairer.

Can't receivee a fax. Machine stays in selftest mode

If it's out of ink, it would remain in sef test mode until it's able to print a report. Make sure the unit is plugged in and check the ink cartridge(s). This may have been the problem that initiated running the self test all along. Post back with any other questions or comments.

The machine won't start up

in the self test does it flush the unit ? If not you have to prime the unit by allowing it to pump hot water through the frothing valve. Open the valve and the pump should pulse water out. After this the machine should indicate it is in the operating mode for coffee
