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.

    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
    • They look nice but but they also look expensive for what they are.
    • I worked all weekend and got the siding up.  I was hoping to have the diamond plate and the roof on too, but I guess that will wait for next weekend along with the ramp furring strips and wiring.  I should be able to put up the plywood for the roof and the furring strips during the week in my shed since I won't need heat for that.       I called around Friday looking for a spray foamer in my area.  Apparently our local painting company no longer does spray foam.  I had guys that weren't interested, to guys that would do it for 2000 if I supplied a heated building to do it in.  Finally I found a guy about an hour away from me who has done several fish houses before and quoted me 1600 and can do it in his own shop.  I was expecting between 1000 and 1500, so it's just a little over my high end.  Does that sound reasonable on a 21' fish house?
