One or more of the air control doors or actuators is not working. A malfunction will set a DTC.

so how can i tell if the blower motor is out or th air control doors is not working? when i was going over 40 air was coming out (i guess from outside) so could it still be the actuators?

If the blower is working you should easily hear it running, especially on high. either in th car or under the hood.

Sitting still, at idle, in P, operate the HVAC system in all modes. Does the blower run at all? Can you hear the air door motor(s) or actuator(s) operating in the front right part of the console ??

If the blower does not run, at any speed, you have some more troubleshooting to do.

Not sure for your car, but there is an underhood fuse/relay box and maybe another box under the driver's side of the rear seat. The fuse ID is on the sticker on the inside of the box cover.

And that is exactly why I say "only buy dumb parts from AZ, their parts are cheap for a reason". Cheap ain't so cheap when you have to install them over and over, even if they are free.

RockAuto.com, GMPartsDirect.com, NAPA, or the parts desk at the local dealership(if I have to) is where I get mine, all depends on what you're needing and how quickly you need it.

I got mine from Checker (OEM with the new design) and so far so, so good. This was before I was using Rockauto. You're right - it's a bitchy job, but as Ranger has said before: you get better at it the second time around. If I have to redo mine, I will unbolt the ICM and lay it on its back to get more room at the firewall. Also, disconnect the main conduit back there to gain more valuable access to the blower area. BTW, your car's air door actuators could go at any time too. I replaced one and rebuilt the second one. Yet another fun job in a tight spot behind the glove box! Good luck.

That looks right - I can see you got the new design too with the foil protection layer. It's a nasty job and I hope you don't have to go thru it again. Good luck with the new blower.

Get those ignition wires as far away from that motor as you can. That may be the reason the new on went. That's the reason for the shield, but why tempt fate.
