You've probably already considered this, but you might check a local "you-pull-it" auto parts place and see what a used part might cost. Obviously there's no guarantee on used parts, but when I had a similar problem with my '89 Toyota I think the used HVAC controller costs $40, while the new part went for $400. (I still ended up buying the new part eventually, but at least by that point I was able to install it in record time!)

Almuerzo, sounds to me like either your air actuator on the passenger side is fried or the vent air arm off the actuator is sticking causing the fuse to blow or you have a short to ground.
Did you find the problem?

Yeah. Kind of. We traded the car in for a new one. I was not able to pinpoint the problem but it's over now.
Thanks for your respnse.

So did you stick with an Impala, or go with something else?

All I ask is if/when you have problems with it, share them over on the Camry boards!

I have the above vehicle that is giving me some fits. Just a couple of weeks ago the A/C started blowing luke warm. I figured low on freon so I added some and still no cold air. After putting in the freon I noticed the next day that when I accelerated the a/c almost quit blowing and that it was making a squeaky noise like a belt was wet. Does anyone have any suggestions. I really could use the help. Thanks.

How many miles on the car, and have you ever replaced your serpentine belt? Just thinking if it's the original belt it could be glazed by now, and your compressor pulley could be slipping as a result. If you haven't replaced it by now I would, and that might fix your problem (and if it doesn't, it's still a good idea to replace it). That's probably the simplest answer; if you've already replaced the belt it'll probably be a more complicated/expensive repair.
