This is how General Motors is getting people to buy new cars (hopefully you didn't buy another GM but we did) Had a 2000 Tahoe Limited with very low miles and right after the warranty ran out the computer locked up and the car wouldn't turn over, cost us a 600.00 trip to the dealer and a four day wait on the part so in the meantime we just traded it in on another.....Have a friend that this just happened to on a 2006 Equinox right after the warrnaty ran out GO FIGURE, they are programming this stuff to stop working and then you get irritated enough you just get rid of it.

I am new here to the forum and needed a little advice. I have an 03 Impala, base model with 55K miles. Last year I had my AC charged it was the first summer I had the car and by September it wasnt getting cold. Does it need to be recharged?
#48 of 142 06 Impala AC Compressor
Aug 19, 2008 (11:23 am)
I had a new AC Compressor put in my 06 Impala (66,000miles) for total cost of $800 including parts/labor. I had to find the part online as all the local shops had it on backorder. I went to discountacparts.com and got it NEW for about $350. All the dealerships and GM warehouses were quoting $600+ for the part. I had it shipped direct to my repair shop where the guys fixed it in about a 3 hour time window. I was told it's a common part to go bad on these 06 models.

Gm has been using Nippondenso compressors for the past few years, those compressors are total junk & are expensive to replace. I've replaced several of them over the past few years on various GM products. Unfortunately, our beloved Impalas also use them. Our '06 Impala SS has some compressor noise after its been driven on a long trip while using the AC. I'm sure its only a mater of time before it fails.
#50 of 142 How to replace the driver side temp. actuator? Help.
Oct 03, 2008 (6:42 am)
The driver side climate control of my 2004 chevy impala doesn't work, only code air and no heat regardless of the temp. control. I searched here and found that it might be the problem of driver side temp, actuator. Could somebody tell me how the part look like, where it is located, and how to replace it? It would be great if you have pics for that. Thanks.

Thanks for the detailed description! I also have an 05 Impala. I got the part for $46.16. That included tax. Once I found out what the part looked like I was able to find it and replace it! The dealer said it would cost $109.00 to change it. A local repair shop said they would do it for $100.00. I did it in an hour and a half an donly had one screw left over. The part was made in China. I took apart the old actuator and it has 3 plastic gears and a motor in it. The gears were still intact. Evidently the motor failed. Yes, the motor said it was made in China. I am guessing the part cost G.M. about $4.00 at most. I am wondering if I should buy another actuator before the price goes up. The passenger actuator is probably right around the corner as far as failure.
#52 of 142 Can't change where the air blows
Oct 09, 2008 (11:09 am)
The temperature controls work, the fan speed works, everything works except the air comes out half on the feet and half straight ahead and it won't change.
Turn the control knob to set it to feet or face or windshield and nothing happens.
Any ideas how to fix this? it would be so nice to be able to set the air to blow up on the windshield in winter!

Are you asking about the remote start feature? Is it possible to reprogram that the defrost stays on.
