Service brakes light on after sensor replaced

Heater/ ac don't work correctly

Unread post by » Wed Dec 09, 2009 7:01 pm

I have a 2003 Silverado 5.3 motor. My problem is with the Heater/ AC. When I set the temperature with my dial to 90 it will heat but when I lower it to 89 or it will cool. I have dual control knobs if that will help. Thanks

Does the air temp come out this way on both drivers and pasenger side, or just one side ?
Have you checked the coolant level?

Sounds like a bad temperature door motor.
Check to see if there is a difference between the passenger side vents and the drivers side vents.
If there is, then the temp door actuator motor for that side has a problem.
Most likely need to replace the motor.

There are several in the dash. Driver temp motor, passenger motor, mode door motor...
Best bet is to go to the dealer for this part and tell them which one you need, then they will get you a diagram of its location.

You've got what's called a Hydro-Boost brake system. In this style of system, the brakes get their power assist from the power steering pump. You have a hydro-boost unit behind the master cylinder instead of a vacuum booster. If the power steering pump goes out, you will lose power brakes and power steering. The steering will be hard to turn, and the brakes will require much more effort on the pedal to stop the truck. Most likely, the shaft on the power steering pump is broken. You can check this by prying on the pulley a bit and see if it walks out from the pump body. If so, you need to replace the pump
