You've checked a lot - and all looks good (I feel for you ..). You comment on the no spark gave me a thought. If it was going to stop for a problem - it should give an error code - so maybe there is none (to the computer)??. Can you check the "On" wire circuit from the key switch to the computer and the IGN on signal from the computer to the ICM ??? Perhaps it thinks you shut off the key and is just shutting down ??? (i.e. intermittant contact/wire, etc.)

THEBIGAL had a similar problem - perhaps the diverters are just "Stuck".
Just continue to drive it for a while (do a few rough roads as well) and occasionlly during your drives cycle the selector switch through each setting (letting it stay at each stop for a few minutes.) It might loosen up.
alternatively - you can check for vaccum at the vaccum motors - but you''d have to get under the dash for that - also check the vaccum lines for cracks and splits - especially at the ends.... Get a Chassis manual from GM (or Try alldata.com on the net) and you can see where the vaccum motors are and how to get to them ....

If you get the chance - ask them what about persons like me - I replaced mine, after they did rust out, with after markets (as their's broke and I did not trust their replacements as they did not acknowledeg a problem). Will they swap out/ check ones that were replaced by actual failures and if not replaced by spending big buck at a dealer for their "Not a problem" original parts?

Lighters occasionally go bad - throw it out and get a new one ...

Check for some past posts of mine on this suject ... In Summary - if it is your rear end;
Most all Rear ends whine, the preload (shims) in the pinion grar to the ring gear cause a lot of this issue. If they are not properly "pre loaded" at the factory the whine will get worse as the mileage goes up. This can be fixed by a tech (re set / add/remove shims). Also - per the GM S10 manual - this truck has a sweet spot at about 35 to 45 mph - that's when it's the worse ..
You will not hear this when it coasts ... Also as there is little insulation (Noise insulation) in these trucks - the road noise, tranny and rear end noise are a lot more noticable in the cab. If it's real bad, and getting worse - I'd get it checked ...

Thank you for the information. This is a very low usage vehicle (less than 40 miles per month). Its only used if something won't fit into the car or if the car is in for service. The switch position most likely has not been changed since last winter so there is a good chance the diverter is stuck. If that doesn't work, I'll try Alldata. Thanks again, Bud

Actually they addressed that in the letter they sent me. They also included a reimbursement form for which those who had already paid to have them replaced could be reimbursed. It didn't specify if you replaced them yourself or had a dealer or independent shop do it. It just simply said "paid to have them replaced". I would assume then that means you would be able to be reimbursed even though you did the work yourself and used after market parts. I have that form and since I do not need it can offer to send it to you to fill out and send it?? Or they printed a phone # on the bottom of the form -- am I allowed to post it here??

I did what canufixit suggested and it seems to have fixed the problem... I cycled through all the climate control settings and now it seems to be fine.

I sent you a scanned copy of the form... I don't know how GM would respond to a copy, but if your vehicle falls under the recall criteria then I don't see why it a copy versus original would really matter??
