I had the same light go out on my climate control, as well as one on one of my radio buttons (TRAF). However, after replacing my power window switch and seeing how the light bulbs were soldiered in on it, I thought twice about tearing into my dash and trying to fix the other lights. I did keep my old window switch with the thought that I might be able to take one of the working bulbs and use it to replace the burned out ones elsewhere, but it hasn't been enough of an issue for me to worry with. No advice for you in terms of getting things working again unfortunately; I'm not much of an electrician, and when I saw the bulbs didn't just plug in I pretty much gave up on the idea of replacing them.
#4 of 144 AC Blowing Hot Air On Passenger Side
Jun 02, 2006 (5:52 pm)
Help! I have a 2000 Impala with dual climate control. Just today the passenger side began blowing out hot air regardless of the temp setting. The driver side blows out cool air regardless of temp setting. Any thoughts? Please advise...

If you have the bench seat you could just drive from the middle position!!

It sounds as if the temperature control switch went bad. Have it checked and replaced.
#7 of 144 Dual Zone Climate Problem

2003 Impala A/C on and both zones set to max cool. Passengers side is fine, drivers side is blowing vent temperature air. Any ideas? Help! It's hot outside!

It appears that you need to replace the temperature console. You can't just replace the slide bars. The whole unit needs to be replaced. Goodluck.

Steve, my son-in-law has the same problem but do you still think its the temp control unit if: when the slider is up, heat blows, when mid way, outside air blows, when down, outside air still blows? Also, we swapped vaccum hoses on the back of the unit behind the sliders but no change. It seems the working side has no vacuum pressure but the non-working side does (assuming they correlate to the sliders). The unit is about $100 and probably non-returnable. Your further advice would be big bucks appreciated!
#10 of 144 2006 A/C drain
Oct 27, 2006 (8:22 am)
My wife has noticed a musty odor coming from the ac vents during operation. I believe it may be a clogged condensate drain. However for the life of me, I can't locate the a/c drain. Before I take the vehicle in to the dealer for this "small problem", does anyone know where the drain is accessible from? I can see the freon lines going to the evaporator through the firewall, but no drain anywhere near. Sounds like an easy fix once I locate the drain. Any ideas?
#11 of 144 NO HEAT ON DRIVER SIDE 05 IMPALA
Nov 09, 2006 (2:02 am)
I have an 05 Chevy Impala and the A/C works great but when heat is engaged I only get heat from the passenger side of the vehicle, regardless of the setting on the dual climate control...Others have the same or similar problem but no one can pinpoint the solution. Can someone please help???
