#940 of 1845 A/C Wiring on 2000 Chevy Tracker
May 10, 2004 (1:45 pm)
Hi, Does anyone know the wiring schematics for the A/C on a 2000 tracker? My A/C quit a couple weeks ago and I have it narrowed down to a wiring problem but can't find where. I've tested the wiring under the hood where the A/C fuse is with a multi-meter and I don't have any power there. I've also tested the actual AC button on the dash with the multi-meter but it works....my problem is between the AC button and where the fuse is under the hood. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As gas prices continue to skyrocket, I'm reminded every two weeks why I chose a Tracker. I've owned my four-door 4WD 4 banger with manual transmission for five years and 72,000 miles now. I have averaged 25-26 MPG per tank driving 75% city and 25% secondary highways, my typical routine as I use the Tracker primarily for work during the week. That average per tank excludes fill-ups for out-of-town trips and weekends in the rough. At freeway speeds of 65-75 MPH my Tracker averages only 27 MPG. Driving secondary highways at speeds of 40-60 MPH it average 30 MPG. My best mileage ever occurred on a 300 mile one day round trip in a blizzard over a mountain pass. I was in 4WD and driving 30-45 MPH 80% of the time, and got 33 MPG. I'd buy another one if they were still being made and had a Select-Trac type drivetrain as an option. A Select-Trac type drivetrain would have made the Tracker/Vitara a much better all-weather rig to compliment the offroad capabilities.

i recently got a shocking increase in my gas mileage and my performance of my 1999 2.0 litre 2-door tracker (4x4) i ran a full can of this additive called SEAFOAM. i use this as a re-carbonizer in my motorcycle. so i thought i would give it a try in my tracker. it also works as a fuel injector cleaner. this is pretty extreme stuff. unlike that $.99 STP cleaner.. lol well my miles is way higher than it has ever been b4.

does anyone know of a website where i can buy chevy tracker parts online. example. i need a new gas cap door. it's almost falling off the car! i know the stealer will charge the most they can for it. I know with my motorcycle, i can purchase O.E.M. parts for it and alot cheaper pricing! just wondered if this was true for our trackers.

i replaced my tracker with an equinox recently. i was offered a lowball price of $5900 for trade for my 01 4 dr 4wd 4cyl 5spd 43k all power etc...in almost perfect condition. i said thanks, but no thanks. i sold it yesterday for $8400. while i will miss it dearly, i needed something a little bigger.
i will miss the occasional offroad adventure that i can't do in the nox, and the simplicity of the tracker design. it was easy to work on.

i dont know much about the equinox, are they built on a truck frame? do they have 4low? i guess i could look on their website, but im too lazy... lol

no, the nox is not built on a truck frame, but rather on the theta platforn shared with the saturn vue. so, there is no 4 low, just an auto awd that kicks in when the front wheels slip.

looking at the ads and an 03 Tracker caught my eye. Im basically a car guy, so these are probably some really dumb questions here....
1)Will a bicycle fit INSIDE a 4 door Tracker? Im talking about your average mountain bike with 26" wheels.
2)Is insurance cost high, low, average?
3)Does the 4 cyl. engine have a timing belt or a chain?
4)Is a 2WD Tracker front-wheel drive or rear wheel drive?
6)What kind of gas mileage does the 4/auto get on the highway at 65MPH?
7)How is the highway ride? Im used to cheap small cars, Escort, Saturn, so I dont expect much...
8)The tracker I saw advertised is an 03 base model, silver, 2.0L, automatic, CD Player, AC, cruise control, with 9K miles, priced at $9999. Is this a decent deal?
Thanks for any help.

Tracker 4 cyl motor has timing chain
Its Rear wheel drive no matter if it comes with 4wd or not
Erie hits me up 800/year on my Vitara 4 door (same rig as a tracker)
MPG with 5 speed is around 23-25 town, 26 during dedicated hiway cruising.
Rides like a log wagon. If the road is good, so is the ride. Rough spots are not this rigs forte.
Dunno on the bike. I would think it would.
Yes, that seems to be a good deal. Is this a 2 door rig or 4 door?

I really shouldn't trade now but I am tired of shifting, and sitting low on the uncomfortable seats of my Saturn. Which will probably run forever and I am upside down, but I am itching for something different. and I'd borrow the money from myself this time.
I am also considering small pickup trucks like the Ranger, and the PT Cruiser might be in my price range, it looks like they all have about the same mileage, mid 20's. Thats a consideration, with the prices as they are and my Saturn getting nearly 40.
I am not too concerned about the bike fitting in, just an idle thought. If there was another inch of space under the shelf and two inch wider trunk opening it would fit right in my Saturn with the seats down.
Id rather have an engine with a timing chain so that's good, less maintenance costs. RWD is not, I would not expect good traction in the snow with RWD on such a small car. But that's why they make 4wd....The one I listed is a 4 door. I have not seen too many 2 doors for sale.
