      The Air Mix Mode Actuator Blend Door controls the direction of airflow. It selects which way air flows through the different ducts. If your climate control system has lost the ability to control which vents the air comes out of, the MDA has probably failed. Both the ATC and MTC systems use this device.

      Cool on the driver side and hot on the pass side is almost always caused by a faulty pass side blend door actuator. If it were the reverse (cool on pass side and hot on driver side the cause is always that the system is low on refrigerant.)
      The vehicle A/C system is low on refrigerant, check the low side port, it must have a pressure between 25-35 psi.

      No air comes out of dash vents, only the defroster. The drivers side of the defroster feels like heat while the passenger side of defroster is cold when I have the AC on. Blower works fine. The AC shows it is fully charged. Since AC only comes out of defroster and not the dash vents, doesn't that mean that the blend door actuator doesn't work for the dash vents?

      The HVAC of this vehicle has 4 different actuators.
      The mode actuator.
      The passenger air mix actuator
      The driver air mix actuator.
      The air inlet actuator.
      The Mode Door Actuator controls the direction of airflow. It selects which way air flows through the different ducts. If your climate control system has lost the ability to control which vents the air comes out of, the MDA has probably failed. Both the ATC and MTC systems use this device.

      You might have two problems, the mode actuator and the driver air mix actuator aren't working properly.

      Does this mean that the mode actuator and the driver mix actuator have to be replaced, or could it be a wiring or fuse problem?

      The actuators are made with plastics, if they cracked, their synchronization mechanism is binding.

      Also, check the Instrument Panel Integration Module ( IPIM ), it controlled those actuators. Local auto parts stores may have the fixture to test it or negotiate with the store managers to obtain a free loaner IPIM for a try.

    Why will my ac compressor clutch not engage?
    When I push auto button on my temperature control panel it does not stay on and clutch for ac will not engage.

      The a/c compressor will engage when; the a/c system is filled with refrigerant, the compressor fuse, relays, wiring / connections and switch / controls are working correctly. If the a/c system is fully charged, then check these other items in the system - starting with the switch, the wiring / connections and fuses to the compressor.

      If the sockets are still alive with battery voltage and the red lens is still good and it seems safe you can just change the bulbs. I have seen that happen and the main reason is someone installs a higher wattage bulb than what was called for because they look identical but throw off a lot more heat.

      Check the following washer system components; washer pump relay (swap with another one of the same size rating to see if the problem disappears), faulty washer switch, faulty washer pump wiring or connection to the washer motor, faulty washer pump.
      Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the washer pump relay from around $98.00 (AC Delco part # D1756A) and the washer pump from around $16.60 (AC Delco part # 86710) for your vehicle.

    Clicking noise,maybe a relay, center to right side of dash.
    Click is about every second. continuous only when engine is running. Everything works fine. Any help?

      I believe the clicking is from one of the actuators in the heater / ac system, replace the actuator making the noise if you can pin it's location down. You will have to start poking around under the dash.
