    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    Just figured out my driver front (maybe rear, havent checked) heat is not working. Just cold air coming out. At first I thought it was all the vents thank god its not.
    I guess it might be the move actuator?
    Any ideas?

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    Is DTC a p-code?
    I have an OBDII reader so I can hook it up tonight and see if anything comes up. I thought a check engine type light thing would come up somewhere no?

    More likely a B code. Light doesn't always come on although it usually does.

    If you can get heat out of the rear let us all know

    The rear vents in the roof are AC only if it happens to come up.

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    Hi Whip...

    Do you get heat out of the passenger side.

    Are you testing with the "Duel" function turned OFF.. or ON... ?

    Does the AC work?

    Do you get heat coming from UNDER the seats toward the rear seat?

    If one side, but not the other.. you have a baffle issue..

    If all cold... could still be a baffle.. also possible heater core or thermostat issues.

    Somewhere in my thread, I had wrote about heater problems - - but they were caused by the mechanics that tried to block what they thought to be a dripping hose, but ended up being a sensor tube.

    No OBDII codes.

    Heat is nice and hot from passengers side.

    Have not tried AC yet, but even regular air would feel like AC because of the weather right now.

    Under driver seat is strong cold air coming out. Under passenger seat it is warm air but not very strong, almost un-noticable.

    Thanks for all the help so far everyone.

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    Yea Whip... I'm thinking baffle control. But it could be the drivers temp sensor.

    Try testing in single mode - - if it still blows hot on pass, and cold on drive.. definitely baffle.. if all goes cold, when set to single, very possible the temp sensor for the drivers side is broken. (Same if all goes hot in single mode.)

    Hopefully, all will go hot in single mode, buying you time to get it fixed at your leisure.

    How do I make it so it only blows on the passenger side? I recall pressing "PWR"(I think) on the drivers side and it turned everything off. And PWR on passenger and it turned both on?
    I'll try a few more things in the morning while I freeze.

    Ya I tried again this morning. I don't know how to have it so only the passenger fan blows. Does there need to be an actual passenger there? Does it work with a sensor in the seat similar to airbag deployment?

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    I am not familiar with the dash of an 04..

    On my 09, at the bottom of the console, there is a button labeled "pass".. if I press it, the heater switches to duel mode, showing individual temp settings for Driver and Passenger.. this is the default mode. You can press that button and the settings will turn off for the passenger, and the entire system uses the settings for the drivers side. The heat/AC system is split right down the middle... with temp sensors for both sides.

    Reading the book for your car, it sounds like you have 2 PWR buttons.. one on each side...

    The book says this about your 04...

    *Dual Climate Control System

    With this system you can control the heating, cooling and ventilation for your vehicle.

    Automatic Operation

    AUTO (Automatic): When this button is pressed and the temperature is set, the system will automatically control the inside temperature, the air delivery mode, the air conditioning compressor and the fan speed. AUTO will appear on the display.

    Press the AUTO button.
    Adjust the temperature to a comfortable setting between 70°F (21°C) and 80°F (27°C).

    Choosing the coldest or warmest temperature setting will not cause the system to heat or cool any faster. If you set the system at the warmest temperature setting, the system will remain in manual mode at that temperature and it will not go into automatic mode.

    In cold weather, the system will start at reduced fan speeds to avoid blowing cold air into your vehicle until warmer air is available. The system will start out blowing air at the floor but may change modes automatically as the vehicle warms up to maintain the chosen temperature setting. The length of time needed for warm up will depend on the outside temperature and the length of time that has elapsed since your vehicle was last driven.
    Wait for the system to regulate. This may take from 10 to 30 minutes. Then adjust the temperature, if necessary.

    You can switch from English to metric units through the Driver Information Center (DIC). If you have the base audio system, see DIC Main Menu . If you have the Navigation system, see "Setup Menu" in the Navigation System Manual.

    The air-conditioning system removes moisture from the air, so you may sometimes notice a small amount of water dripping underneath your vehicle while idling or after turning off the engine. This is normal.

    Do not cover the solar sensor located in the center of the instrument panel, near the windshield. For more information on the solar sensor, see "Sensors" later in this section.
    Manual Operation

    (Mode): Pressing the mode switch and changing the mode cancels automatic operation and places the system in manual mode. Press AUTO to return to automatic operation. The outboard air outlets will always receive airflow regardless of the mode selected. See Outlet Adjustment to change this airflow from the outboard outlets.

    To change the current mode, select one of the following:
    (Vent): This mode directs air to the instrument panel outlets.

    (Bi-Level): This mode directs approximately half of the air to the instrument panel outlets, and then directs most of the remaining air to the floor outlets. Some air may be directed toward the windshield. In automatic operation, cooler air is directed to the upper outlets and warmer air to the floor outlets.

    (Floor): This mode directs most of the air to the floor outlets with some air directed to the outboard outlets (for the side windows), and a little air directed to the windshield. The mode switch can also be used to select the defog mode. Information on defogging and defrosting can be found later in this section.

    (Fan): Press this switch to increase or decrease the fan speed. Pressing this switch cancels automatic operation and places the system in manual mode. Press AUTO to return to automatic operation. If the airflow seems low when the fan speed is at the highest setting, the passenger compartment air filter may need to be replaced. For more information, see Passenger Compartment Air Filter and Scheduled Maintenance .

    (Recirculation): This mode keeps outside air from coming in the vehicle. It can be used to prevent outside air and odors from entering your vehicle or to help heat or cool the air inside your vehicle more quickly. Press this button to turn the recirculation mode on or off. The air-conditioning compressor also comes on. Recirculation is not available in the defrost mode and will automatically turn off after 10 minutes when defog is selected. Using recirculation for long periods of time may cause the air inside your vehicle to become too dry or stuffy. To prevent this from happening, after the air in your vehicle has cooled, turn the recirculation mode off.

    PWR (Power/Driver's Temperature): Press the PWR button located on the driver's side of the climate control panel to turn the entire climate control system on or off. Press the up or down arrow on the switch to increase or decrease the temperature inside your vehicle.

    PWR (Power/Passenger's Temperature): Press the PWR button located on the passenger's side of the climate control panel to turn the passenger's climate control system on. Press the up or down arrow on the switch to increase or decrease the temperature for the front passenger.

    A/C OFF (Air Conditioning): Press this button to manually turn off the air conditioning compressor. Press AUTO to return to automatic operation or press the A/C OFF button again.

    Sensors

    There is a solar sensor located on the instrument panel, near the windshield.

    There is also an interior temperature sensor located to the right of the steering wheel on the instrument panel.

    These sensors monitor the solar radiation and the air inside your vehicle, then use the information to maintain the selected temperature by initiating needed adjustments to the temperature, the fan speed and the air delivery system. The system may also supply cooler air to the side of the vehicle facing the sun. The recirculation mode will also be activated, as necessary. Do not cover the sensors or the automatic climate control system will not work properly.

    Defogging and Defrosting

    Fog on the inside of windows is a result of high humidity (moisture) condensing on the cool window glass. This can be minimized if the climate control system is used properly. There are two modes to clear fog from your windshield. Use the defog mode to clear the windows of fog or moisture and warm the passengers. Use the defrost mode to remove fog or frost from the windshield more quickly.
    (Mode): Press this button until defog appears on the display.

    (Defog): This mode directs the air between the windshield, floor outlets and side windows. When you select this mode, the system turns off recirculation and runs the air-conditioning compressor unless the outside temperature is at or below freezing. The recirculation mode is cancelled when you enter defog mode. If you select recirculation while in defog mode, it will be cancelled after 10 minutes. If you have fogging on the side windows, turn the thumbwheel on the outboard outlets to the side window defog position. See Outlet Adjustment for more information.

    (Defrost): Pressing defrost directs most of the air to the windshield, with some air directed to the side windows. In this mode, the system will automatically turn off recirculation and run the air-conditioning compressor, unless the outside temperature is at or below freezing. Recirculation cannot be selected while in the defrost mode. This mode may also cause the fan speed and air temperature to increase. If you have fogging on the side windows, turn the thumbwheel on the outboard outlets to the side window defog position. See Outlet Adjustment for more information. Do not drive the vehicle until all the windows are clear.

    Rear Window Defogger

    The rear window defogger uses a warming grid to remove fog or frost from the rear window.

    The rear window defogger will only work when the ignition is in ON.
    (Rear Window Defogger): Press this button to turn the rear window defogger on or off. Be sure to clear as much snow from the rear window as possible.

    The rear window defogger will turn off about 10 minutes after the button is pressed. Or, if the vehicle's speed is above 30 mph (48 km/h), the rear defogger will stay on continuously. If turned on again, the defogger will only run for about five minutes before turning off. The defogger can also be turned off by pressing the button again or by turning off the engine.

    The heated outside rearview mirrors will heat to help clear fog or frost from the surface of the mirror when the rear window defogger button is on.

    Notice: Do not use a razor blade or sharp object to clear the inside rear window. Do not adhere anything to the defogger grid lines in the rear glass. These actions may damage the rear defogger. Repairs would not be covered by your warranty.

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    Ah yeah I read that last night. I was still unable to power just the passenger HVAC. I can power driver only, driver and passenger, but not passenger only.
    I read a few posts of people disconnecting their battery for a few minutes and then reconnecting and that solved the issue. however this seems to happen after a new battery install. I'm not sure if PO installed a new battery recently or not.
    I'm really trying to avoid going to a dealer for this because I know it won't be cheap.

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    I tried disconnecting the battery and still same issue.

    Few new questions:

    On a 2004, are there supposed to be holes in the body where the cadillac badge is supposed to go in the rear? My car is missing the badge so I purchased a new one and it has tabs that look like they need to be fitted in the holes. The car did have previous hail damage and was repainted.

    Which cylinder on the N* is cylinder #1? (had a misfire)

    And I still have no heat coming from drivers side. What is this baffle Im supposed to look for? I tried searching and I have no idea what it is.

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    Baffle- there'e some little doors inside the heater assembly operated by motors that are accessible on the assembly. Get to it by removing the passenger knee bolster (lower dash). The motors are run by the BCM. As to the badge, remove the tabs and use 3M double sticky tape. As far as controlling heat side to side, there's only 1 temp sensor so passenger heat would be a +/- function of driver side.
