Even if you have it on full dash, it blew the same amount of air from the dash vents as through the floor vents?

I wish I had a scan tool to pull codes from the A/C system. I'm thinking the superchips can't pull those codes.

Yeah I've got equal air coming from the dash and and floor when its on dash only.

I am 99% sure there is something wrong with the "mode door actuator" for the dash/defrost/floor - there is also one for the rear air and rear floor but that one is working properly.

I am going to take the old one out and give it a lookover - if it needs replacing it is a $22 part.

Re: A/C Question

It is the actuator. I had the exact same problem last year. Mine was covered under warranty so i don't know how much it costs but. It is definitely the actuator or the little gear for it.

Cool, good to know. It is a $22 part so not a big deal!

Re: A/C Question

do you have to take the dash out or is it accesible from the floorboard?

It's accessible from the floor on the driver's side. 3 screws and an electrical connection and it's off. Two of the screws are going to be a little bit of a pain to get to though.

Re: A/C Question

It is accessible but frankly the dealer always took apart the dashboard twice on me in order to "fix" the actuator. They just want to tack on the extra hour onto the labor. :\ But hey whatever it works. That part more than likely is a special order. I had to wait a week for it on both occasions. Let us know how it goes!

Re: A/C Question

Usually the have air go to floor because it will be to much pressure coming out dash vent blowing things and very noisy

Re: A/C Question

I just checked mine and some air does come out of the floor vents

But say you have the A/C fan on the middle setting - does it feel like the same amount of air is coming from the floor that is coming from the vents?

I can understand a little bit of air being routed to the floor because it is a lot of air to push out the vents, but it shouldn't be equal, thus making my dash vents feel weak.

And also I am led to believe that the actuator is messed up because when I put it on floor only it blows from the floor and the defrost vents....

The part is only $22, so I'm gonna get it.
