I have a 2007 Equinox. The temperature gauge sometimes works but most of the time it shows hot or off the scale even at start up in the morning. I replaced the coolant temperature sensor and no change. No problems with overheating though. I figured it must be the instrument cluster panel and I d live with it and have been for the last 6 months. This morning, after I started the car, I had no power to the entire AC control section under the radio section. After work I started it and now I have AC control power and all is good (except the wacked out temperature gauge). After reading about this, I am thinking I might have a bad BCM. Maybe these are unrelated. A blown fuse couldn t cause the self-fixing AC control issue, but a bad BCM could cause both problems. Thinking about replacing BCM but would like to do a little troubleshooting first with some expert advice. Please offer any help here if you have experienced this or know about this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
