automatic climate controls

Recommended Posts

have a '92' olds ninety eight, 3.8, with automatic electronic climate control. lately when starting the car the panel has three lines across it and the fans blows at high speed. during this time i can not change the settings. if i kill the power(turn key off) and restart, sometimes it will preform normaly. any ideas where to start looking for the cause?

I would have to guess the ATC head (unit in the dash) is the cause. Possible wiring or ground issue but I would say (with out looking at the vehicle) it is something failed in the control head its self.

you might be right about the ground or wiring, the problem is intermitten. any ides where the ground wire for that would be?

i did not find a fuse for the atc to follow the wire and check connections. there is a bunch of relays and fuse's under the hood just below the windsheild.

I just fixed a 96 Buick that had some ac problems. I think on a car the age of yours has a self test. The GM's are about the same for heat and ac controls if years are close. Do a google search and see if you can bring up a forum about this. I found some good info doing this. If no luck let me know, I may be able to find those sites again. The main control is one of the last things that go out on these. jps scheernj@mtcnet.net

    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming. 
    • Well this has been a tough season so far with this odd weather. Late winter jump into 80+ degrees.  It will be interesting to see what these next 4-5 days of 80's to 90's do to them?   Did find a few Morel's and some nice small tender Pheasant  backs last time out.
    • For the 2018 Minnesota Fishing Opener we went up to Lake Vermilion in search of Walleyes. The morning started off slow for us so we changed up the tactics and it resulted in a livewell full of walleyes, a few Slot fish and a new Personal Best!     
    • Ok, if you don't post back in a few days we know!
    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
