Since heating and a/c problems seem to be a universal problem with the newer Impalas...wouldnt you think this is a design flaw caused by Chevy and they should correct it? I still have no heat when the car is idling or when the RPMs go under 2..like slow driving. I just purchased this car in October and of course the limited warranty expired as soon as the weather got cold enough for me to use the heater. I do not feel I should have to pay out of pocket to correct something that the designers of the Impala screwed up on. ( I know 5 people who own 2004 or newer Impalas and they all having heating problems)

Bhender....same problem with my 2004. I find I only have heat when my car is reving more then 1 on the tach. When I have to sit at a stop light, I only get cold air blowing.
#91 of 142 Fan Speed
Dec 29, 2010 (11:16 pm)
The fan on my Impala 2000 is not working correctly. I've been loosing speeds one by one. If I put the knob on 1 or 2 nothing happens - minimum speed is now 3 so its either off or roaring which is annoying. Now 3 seems to be failing.
Anyone know if this is switch or the fan motor?

so is there way to get the air out of the system without taking it into the dealer???? cannot believe how many other impala owners have this problem. I agree if it is a known flaw it should be corrected by GM and not the owner.
#93 of 142 2007 Impala Cold Temeratures A/C
Mar 06, 2011 (4:43 pm)
I just bought a 2007 Impala, yesterday. I want to make sure everything works. I am trying to test the A/C and the compressor does not come on and when I press the A/C button and the light flashes 6 times and then goes off. One thing I must disclose is that I live in Minnesota and the outside temperature was 33 degrees F.
My question is: Does the HVAC system have a sensor that senses outside air temperature and does not allow the A/C to turn on when it's to cold outside, or is the A/C system broken?

Per the owners manual page 169 it states: The A/C will not operate if the outside temperature is 40 degrees F or below. I hope this information helps! Welcome to the GM Family!

#95 of 142 Intermittant blower.

2005 Impala. Sometimes the blower will not come on. Wack the dash on the lower right of the
climate controller or have to leave the fan on and it will come back on again. Dunno if its the relay or the blower motor. Might be the temp cluster.
What do you all think?
#96 of 142 Knocking sound, changing from Recir to Outside
Apr 17, 2011 (7:05 pm)
07 Impala, with AC on, Recirculate is pushed/on and I change to Outside Air there is a knocking sound coming from the passenger side dash. This also happens when going from Outside to Recirculate. When parked and turn the engine off, I get the same knocking at about 4 knocks per second for about 15 or 20 seconds then it goes off.

Have you had the chance to take your vehicle to your dealership to be diagnosed?
