AC ISSUE

2005 Cadillac Escalade

Air Conditioning problem
2005 Cadillac Escalade V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 53000 miles

Hi-

Sometime my AC blows hot- as if it's in heater mode. It only happens sporadically. No matter whether I adjust the temp manually or set it on auto, it blows hot air. Oddly, the rear AC will still blow cold. I've tried turning the unti on and off and this doesn't work, but if it sits for awhile, chances are it's OK the next time. Very odd. Again, this doesn't happen every time, so I'm wondering if it's not an AC issue but an issue with the control gauges not communicating properly with the AC system, but have no idea. Any help would be much appreciated- thanks!

Hi dimattia23,

Thank you for the donation.

The problem is due to a fault with the air mix ( temperature actuator) and there is a possibility a trouble code is recorded. You can retrieve the trouble code with tha aid of a scan tool. Let me know the exact trouble if any found.
