have a 2000 and went to use the ac and it works I put it to high and then push the blow harder button ( recycle air) the light is lit, but its not clicking over and blowing harder.
I checked fuses. what would I check?

I like my a/c to be on max

idea?

ohh also I did replace the radiator about a month ago, would that have any effect on it?

The rad won't have anything to do with it.

My ac had a leak and hasn't worked for probably three years now, but if I'm not mistaken, using the AC sets to car automatically to recycle the air, so the car is not working so hard cooling 90 or 100 degree outside air, and is instead working only hard enough to cycle the interior air and only have to cool it slightly.

I wish there was a way to do this. Whenever I start the car [05 Impala, & 06 Monte Carlo] even though the A/C was last on recirculate, it starts on outside air, so I always have to hit the recirculate button. I wish there was a way so it always stayed on recirculate. Much cooler, & blows stronger. GARY

My car with ac on does not automatically go to recirculat, I select ac then select the recirculate

There is a vacuum tube running from the throttle body to the climate control system which controls the blend doors in the ventilation system. Might want to start there.

Except when you use the bacon onto windshield setting forced to use outside air.

I have had my Impala almost 6 years and the climate control is stuck on outside air, it will not switch over to recirculate. I have never tried to fix it. I probably should since the air never gets very warm in the winter.

It's programmed that way from GM so the car can "vent" when it's parked.

Our cars have an actuator that moves the flap from vent to recirculate. Just like the actuator to move it from floor, to dash, to defrost. I see more and more of it here at the shop as of late. From what I remember, it's not too easy to get to though.

AC controller stays on recycle when set on recycle.


I think the Dual Climate control is slightly different.?

I was a parts guy at the dealer for 30 years. I don't think I ever sold a vacuum actuator ever. The newer electric ones are sold daily. The nylon gears strip & that causes the failure. The book says 1 hour of labor, but any tech whose done it 5 times can do it in less than half an hour. Of course the electric actuators are made in China, but are cheap to buy. The labor kills you.

I think there was a programming change in 08. My wifes 07 SS doesn't remember it's recirc settings but my 09 SS does. There was a systems upgrade in 08 and a lot of stuff only works 08+. The 2 way RKE for example and Bluetooth are 08+.
