The topic of how to perform the actuator recalibration procedure on Chevrolet , GMC and Cadillac Trucks and SUVs has become an ever increasing topic of discussion.
For manual systems it does not matter where the a/c controls are set but if you feel the need to do something, turn the blower switch on (I prefer speed 3) and set the temperature sliders about .5″ to .75″ from full cold.
For auto systems, press the auto button, with the key on.
Turn the ignition off.
Remove the HVAC/ECAS , 10 amp fuse in the underhood fuse box* or disconnect the battery for one minute.
*Fuse locations can vary from year to year and between different models. Hopefully I will be able to build a list for this.
Install the HVAC fuse or reconnect the battery.
Start the engine. On systems with auto a/c controls the controls will default to 74 degrees F when the ignition is turned back on.
DO NOT TOUCH the a/c controls.
Let the engine run for 1-2 minutes.
Turn the ignition off for at least 10 seconds but no more than 30 seconds.
Restart the engine and then test the a/c controls.
