Digital Climate Control problem in '05 2500HD Duramax

7 posts in this topic

I have a 2005 2500HD Duramax with digital climate control and I have noticed that I only have heat when the dial is set to 90 degrees. As soon as I turn it down even only to 89 it blows out cold air? Everything seemed to work fine in the summer controling the temps, but with the cold weather something must have went haywire? Has anyone experianced this before?

Does this have dual temp control? Where you can adjust passenger and driver side sepperately? If so, and both sides adjust cold, it looks as though you may have a bad control head. If it is singe temp control and can be the control head or the blend door motor/actuator.

With the key on, engine off, and blower on the lowest setting see if you can hear the blend door essentially moving a lot. There will be a noticeable tone difference between full hot and full cold. you may have to play around with the fan settings to hear it). If you hear and extreme difference in tone as you switch between the two temp settings tan I would be more inclined to focus on the control head as well.

It does have the dual climate control where you can set both sides different, but with defrost on both sides are the same temp and when I go from 90 to 89 it goes from hot to cold instantly.

I will try you test airjer with the truck of thanks for the help.

I took it into a GM garage in Green Bay, WI this morning and they said it was a sensor above the driver? They said the sensor thought the truck was 131 degrees F all the time. It kicked out heat at 90F because I was calling for max heat, but when I went below even to just 89F it would send cold air trying to get from 131 to 89. The part was cheap and it was a quick fix and so far so good.

They said its only the 2nd one they have seen fail since the digital climate control came out.

    • Was doing some work in the woods today and found these. Of course I stopped and spent two hours looking for more, but this was it. Oh well, will probably be the earliest I've ever gotten to eat them.  
    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
