Looking at how The Manuals describe my ‘11 - and this is assuming “Manual” HVAC system, you have at least three components here: the (1) Radio/HVAC Control panel which accepts the button presses to direct the air, the (2) HVAC Control Module, which gets the button presses from the Radio/HVAC Control to Control a (3) Mode Cam Actuator, located under the left-side dash below the steering wheel.
So now the question(s) are:
1.) Are the button presses at #1 getting to #2?
2.) Is #2 commanding #3?
3.) Is #3 getting the command, and if so - is it malfunctioning (or just dead)?
Without the aid of a professional scan tool to check #1, #2, or the network between them, I would just go straight to #3 by removing the small panel below the steering wheel and then removing the (3) screws holding the actuator in place - because that’s the most likely point of failure.
Can you hear any noise at this actuator when you press the buttons on the Radio/HVAC panel? I *twice* had something similar fail on my ‘97 Taurus when the same internal plastic gear cracked a tooth! In each case, you could hear it turning (and trying to move the air “blend” door), but when it reached the cracked tooth the door would fall down.
If you can’t hear anything, maybe you only have a blown fuse, but in 30+ years of maintaining all my vehicles - I’ve yet to replace a single fuse...
Getting code P0010 on my 2010 Equinox 4cyl. Camshaft position actuator sensor. I'm at 80k miles so not completely shocking.
Occasional engine stalls/rough running, lack of power while accelerating (moreso than normal), and worse than normal mpg.
Has anyone replaced this sensor? I did a visual...
Can anybody confirm if there is a fuse in the panel?
Manual says slot #7 is supposed to be the Noise Cancellation - but when I checked the box - nothing was in the fuse slot
Can any of you confirm for me?
My 18 Equinox Premier, more often then not, when I start the car up the wipers will cycle once or twice and then stop, not in the home position.
Wiper switch is in OFF position.
Thanx, stay healthy!
Since it hasn't been done and the instructions I have found from AllData were rather lack-luster, I made a guide for anyone who will need to replace their mode door actuator in a 2010+ Terrain/Equinox.
The symptoms were buzzing, clicking and lack of ability to change modes for the HVAC...
