1997 Buick Park Avenue ProblemsHeating and AC Temperature and Air Delivery Mode Door Actuators May Fail
One or more heater & AC (HVAC) air delivery and/or temperature mode door actuator may fail. This can result in incorrect air delivery or temperature. If this occurs, fault code(s) stored in the HVAC control module should be available to assist with diagnoses.
