2018 Silverado Auto Climate Control not working


Recommended Posts

Got a call from my Service Writer. He tells me that the truck has a bad expansion valve, As someone who has been in the HVAC business my entire life ( to this point anyway) i can't see how an expansion valve can cause this issue, as it has nothing to do with the fan. I'm thinking he meant an expansion module, like an add-on that turned regular climate control into dual zone with auto. Of course, no part until Monday so we will see. Updates as events unfold. Happy fourth to y'all and Happy Birthday, America!

I am right there with you. I don't see how this could fix it. When you go, ask to see the part that was replaced and take a picture of it. They will not let you have it because GM could call for the warranty part back. I am curious to know what they replaced though lol. This truck only has a HVAC control module that controls the Manual and Automatic part of the system so I really have no idea what they are talking about. 

 

Yes please let me know what they replace. lol

Well carnau, you were correct. Got the truck back finally. They did in fact replace the expansion valve, but that's only because they found it not equalizing properly while checking my actual complaint. But as for the blower not working, they were "unable to duplicate any abnormal condition at this time. No codes stored in system." I will admit the A/C is blowing slightly colder, which is good because it's currently 250 degrees every day here in Central Texas. If it happens again, it will get a logic lock reset before i do anything else. Truth is I have a great dealership who treats me very well, so if it becomes a chronic issue, they will take care of it... eventually

went out to the garage and started the truck and all worked well. I never got to doing the reset. I guess it was just too hot in the cab for the sensors to work correctly.

Aaaand ... resurrecting this topic once again (found it on a Google search) ...
Just happened to me today, auto climate quit working. AC is fine on manual.
I've read through all of the posts and seems to be a logic reset is in order?
I've yet to scan with my Autel and I'll do that tomorrow before the reset attempt.
Dang it! My first issue at 81,000 miles. :(

Bad news, hopefully not.

 

Do we have this feature in the K2's?

 

SOLAR SENSOR

If equipped, the solar sensor, on top of the instrument panel near the windshield, monitors the solar heat. The climate control system uses the sensor information to adjust the temperature, fan speed, recirculation, and air delivery mode for best comfort. Do not cover the sensor; otherwise the automatic climate control system may not work properly.

Nah, I don't think we have that, it's all just temp sensor controls as far as I can tell.
Heck, I was about to actually bring this post up from the dead because I could only see the reference to it was from the tell-tale indication I had posted on it - doesn't show up in the feed. EDIT: it's there now, thanks, Jim.
I first noticed it when I remote started my truck before leaving the office. Got in and no AC going (95 degree day).
I made sure all was set to Auto, nothing. Put in manual and all worked.
Nuts, I really miss that feature!
I'll go out and check after sitting for a few hours, update in a min.

Weird, everything's back to normal, now.
Not sure what might have happened but there was a post by @mouse24with the same experience.
Auto climate started working again after sitting for a bit ... *confused*

I wonder if the interior sensor, know there is one in the headliner, Bluetooth speaker?, and then one down by your right knee, for the ACC? 

Wonder if extreme temps just mess with it so it does not work, until it cools, warms back to normal?

Might be, Jim. It's been 100 today but, still no issues anymore.
Go figure.
I still have to check codes with the Autel for legacy codes but, hey, life gets in the way, things were back working again and I had to get my new 75" TV installed. :D

      I recently bought a 2020 Trail Boss and whenever I remote start the vehicle, the A/C is blowing on high, how can I disable this  or Adjust this?

      Hello Guys,
       
      The other day I got in my truck and no AC (at least the first time I noticed). Today I took a look at my condenser throught the grill and saw the attached picture.... can someone please chime in and tell me if that is a leak or the row in the condendser is designed to have that gap.
       
      Looks to me to be the source of my leak, but I have no idea how that would have happened and it looks like it would have taken a signficant event to cause that. This is on the passenger side.

      Hello GM lovers,
       
      I’m back again, with hat in hand, asking for help. Recently, I charged my a/c system back into the proper amount of coolant. Now living in the Desert, “cool” air is considered about 80 degrees on a 110 degree day. So all was fine while running the air. One day the blower motor decided it was done working. After schematic searching, I thought I would try the climate control module. That was not the issue. Then I optested the blower motor itself, and voila, it worked, so that lead me to belive it was the resistor. I changed the resistor, and had to rewire the harness, and blew the fuse. Changed the fuse, blower works. Air compressor kicks on, and I have cold freon going into the condensor. However, I am getting 100 degree air out of the vents.
       
      Can anyone help? If I have forgotten something that I may not know of (because I may not know of it) please educate me

      Alright Gents, I'm new to the forum. My truck is a 2012 Silverado LTZ Z71 and it has the dual climate control and auto climate button. Heres the problem:
       
      About two weeks ago my air quit working out of no where, it would not work at all! Okay, so I replaced the blower motor and resistor and harness, still no air. So, then I replaced the in dash climate control module. The air will work, however it works when it wants to. I can cut the truck on, cut the power on and it wont work, but I'll be d****d  if the air works after I've been sweating for a good hour while driving around in this Alabama heat and try turning it on at random! Sometimes, I can take out the fuse to the module and leave it out for a few minutes and out it back in and it work for a few hours with me cutting it on and off as I enter and exit the truck. I finally said to h*** with it and took it to a shop this morning, they called and said that it was the climate control module, that I just replaced mind you, and that they are waiting for a call back from the dealer because the module is a dealer part. I just now got to thinking about something...is there a specific procedure that you're supposed to follow after replacing the climate control module?? Am I missing something??? For the record the resistor did need replacing and I went ahead and replaced the blower motor as well since the old one was starting to lose it's umph and not push air like it used to. So, again...am I missing something here? I've looked and looked, and I'm not the only one with this problem, however no one has the exact problem. I'm really at my wits end guys! I work outside, so yeah I'm pissed right now because I cant escape this dang heat.

      I have a 2015 SLT and would like to install an IPAD PRO 12.9 into the dash. I have to relocate the climate controls and the radio control clusters to the center console. Has anyone seen an extension for the AWM 20706 60v 105c VW-1 Ribbon that connects the radio control cluster to the board on the back of the monitor? It resembles the picture. I need a cable that is about 12 inches long. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
