2001 GMC Sierra 2500 ProblemsHeating and AC Temperature and Air Delivery Mode Door Actuators May Fail
One or more heater & AC (HVAC) temperature and/or air delivery mode door actuator may fail, resulting in improper temperature or air delivery. If this occurs, fault code(s) should be stored in the HVAC control module which should assist in diagnoses.
The 4WD transfer case position sensor or the selector switch may fail causing the service 4WD message to be displayed.
A rattling noise may develop from the AC belt tensioner. This can be caused by an internal fault with the AC compressor, AC performance may also be diminished when this occurs. Our technicians tell us that replacing the ac compressor will commonly correct this concern.
