    Replaced battery with new. Since then middle air vent will not work. What can I check?
    I can change air vents on climate control panel but it only blows out of the defrost and floor vents all the time. I've check some fuses but they were fine.

      It would seem that the mode door actuator has become stuck in one position. Try disconnecting both battery cables (i repeat - BOTH cables and touch them together for a minute, then reattach them and see if the vents will now work and if not then the MDA needs to be changed.

    Headlights keep flickering
    My headlights flicker almost non-stop. They will be normal brightness and then go dim and then back to bright and dim again and it's almost constantly. I checked the battery cables and they are fine. Any other ideas?

      Probable bad alternator. Ill bet that if you unplug the connector from the alternator that the headlamps don't flicker.

      Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com, wwwpartsgeek.com, www.autoanything.com and www.rockauto.com - to list only a few sources. For example, they (Rock Auto) list the alternator from around $119.00 for your vehicle.

    Auto Liftgate won't open on it's own
    My liftgate makes the sounds like it's opening but it won't open unless I manually pull it up and close it. We tried replacing the magnetic actuator (sorry don't know technical name) and it still doesn't work. Any ideas?

      This diagnosis is really not for a DIY mechanic, because diagnosing this requires a code check for the BCM fault codes (not engine codes) and dependent upon what codes are found determines a cause from there. I will tell you that if you were to want to *wing it* without proper professional diagnosis - yet still stand a better tha 75% chance of solving this, then I would say to you to go ahead and replace the rear liftgate latch assembly, but remember, this is NOT a sure thing but it is good odds. Other alternative is to bring to a qualified shop and let them diagnosis this and repair it, but of course you know what will happen to your wallet then.

      if you have an engine fan
      try checking the fan clutch, with the engine off try turning it, it should have some resistance. like pulling open a fridge. if it sins freely, it needs to be replaced.

      if you have an electric, fan check that it is running... with the engine running A/C full blast, look under the hood , see if the fann is running..

      if your fan checks ok, have your system pressures checked.

    Chevy suburban.. I may need to replace the AC condenser on my suburban. I know it will be difficult.
    I need to get some instruction on the process. stevenbennett.re@gmail..com

      May need to?? you need to be more specific, a condenser isn't hard to change for someone that is handy.
      the hardest part is properly recharging the system

      Why do you think you need a new condenser?

      if there is a leak try to find it with soap and water and sauter it, just be careful.

      and to give you the step by step...

      1st if the system is cool and discharged, remove the fan shroud, 10mm bolts. ease the radiator back , and there is the condenser,,, should be 15mm nuts on the lines.. remove and replace pretty simple hardware install. always replace the dryer for the system , recharge and enjoy the cool brees

      As a first step - raise the rear wheels off the ground - and support with jackstands. Inspect the following items; loose / worn suspension bushing, loose exhaust system bracket / clamp / hanger, loose rear strut mount or bushing.
