Having problems with your 2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer ?

I have a 2003 Trailblazer and the dash vent is stuck on. When I try to switch it to the floor vents or the defrost it will start making a clicking noise and will not stop until I switch it back to the dash vents. I'm guessing its a stuck flow vent somewhere. How hard is it to fix this?

2005 Silverado 2500HD 4WD - It appears that the pneumatic valve controlling the directional air flow from my heater/AC is getting stuck. When I switch the fan to front window defrost then back to front/bottom no air flow comes out the front or bottom air vents - the flow is entirely out the upper defrost vents. If I drive over some bumps the valve loosens and air flow again comes out the front/bottom vents. How do I fix this??? Thanks


The default configuration when all vacuum fails is to defrost vents. Most likely your vacuum supply to the switch is weak. Check the connection of the supply line to the intake manifold for damage. If no problem there, trace it to the switch on th ... 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 2WD

Dodge Grand Caravan 2005. A/C wont blow air in the front vents but the back is fine. Defrost (top of dash and bottom vents by feet) work fine on cold or heat. But when I try to flip the switch to head vents there is slight breeze of cold air coming out and a whistling sound. Almost like a flap or something gets stuck when switching positions. Is this a fuse problem? Or something to do with the blower or resistor? Thanks in advance for any insight!

I get stuck in third gear almost every time I take the car out. It has gotten to a point now where the other day, when it was raining, my car jolted, the steering wheel sort of locked and so did the wheels of the car. Immediately the TCS light appeared on the dash and my car was stuck in third gear. I have to stop the car, switch off the engine and switch it back on to resume driving normally although this hasn't worked on every occasion. I've had the car looked over by a mechanic who cleaned

It sounds like a defective temp door actuator. It is behind the glovebox. You should be able to unhook the rod from it and move it manually. Run the engine with the glove box out and move the temp control to see if the actuators move. ... Oldsmobile Regency
