    Rear Climate control for an EXT

    I can't find anything in my manual or on the site about the climate control in the rear of my '04 EXT. It has an On/Off button and some typical climate buttons but none of them work. If I press the power button (in the rear), the LEDs come on for a couple of seconds (it says OFF in the LEDs). Then the LEDs turn off. It's weird. I have the climate control on in the front of the truck and there are no back seat controls in the front. I was wondering if the controls is the back are "dummy" controls and really not there for any particular reason or am I missing something obvious.

    My EXT doesn't have any overhead controls. That's what is weird. I saw a bunch of threads and they all said stuff about the controls being in the AUX position but I don't have those controls. I don't see anything in the front of the truck that even remotely looks like it has anything to do with the rear controls. The rear stereo controls work fine. The climate controls just power on and then right back off.

    I'm trying to upload pictures but I'm not quite sure how to do it. When I try to insert the image, the forum wants a URL. When I direct it to the location on my PC, it only displays the address in the posting. Any ideas?

    I have a 2002 EXT, I haven't noticed any controls for the rear vents, and when I have the heat on I put my hand in the back while driving to feel for air going through the vents but seemed like nothing was coming out?

    Is this normal?

    When there is vents but no controls they work off of the front controls that means if you have the front to floor then the rear will be on the floor vents(normally under the front seats)
    My dads hummer h2 is the same way

    Re: Rear Climate control for an EXT

    Hello. I have tried to find information as to why this occurs. I just purchased a used 05 Escalade and this is exactly what I am experiencing. I try to turn the rear AC on. the rear display shows "OFF" for a few seconds and goes blank. As in, it turns off. How do I get this to work? Front AC seems to be working fine. I am still getting used to the controls.

    ----------

    Feeling like such a newb. Read over several threads. Operator error. All AC components work. I selected "AUX" on the front overhead panel. You would think that this is covered in the owners manual though.
