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.

GMC Sierra 2500 HD Problem
Average Mileage: 107,762 mi (36,000 mi - 306,007 mi)
Visitor, 2003 GMC Sierra 2500 HD, 67,800 mi
Air only comes out dash vents. Changing to floor or defrost switch position does not change air flow.

When A/C is turned on, occassionally blows hot air instead. Restart of the engine will usually solve the problem.

With the A/C on, the drivers side turns to high heat at intermittent times. When the mileage was low, I'd find a pot hole or large lane marker and the little jolt would turn off the heat. Now we are at full stop, shut it off, remove the key and restart. I can hear a small "clicking" sound coming from the dash from time to time.
While I love my GMC Duramax, I hate this problem. Any suggestions on a good repair manual that will cover the A/C systems and circuitry.

Blows cold air on driver's side and hot air on passenger side. Should heat both sides.

Poor airflow. Does not transition through upper vents when selected.

heater actuator will not switch to defrost or floor

Bought used and wasn't told of the problem.....didn't need defrost until two days ago (2 months after purchasing)and it's stuck on floor and panel vents. Will not go to floor only, defrost only, or panel vent only.

The air will only blow out the vents - not the defroster or floor. Have taken to repair shops twice. One reset a code and it worked for awhile. Dealer also did same and still not solved.
