2000 Chevrolet Impala Heat/vent/ac Runs On High With The Engine Off

Posted in Ignition Systems

I have a 2000 Chevy Impala w/162,000 miles. Recently the “Service Traction Control System” and “ABS” lights have come on. Traction control does not work, neither do the anti-lock brakes. Also, when I turned the defroster on it later would not turn off, even with the engine off and the keys taken out of the ignition. It continues to run on high, and I am unable to switch to A/C. I went to the dealer today and they pulled a fuse out of the passenger side dashboard area and this temporarily fixed the problem. Does any one know what this problem may be?? Thanks all.

      Your blower resistor is shorted out. you need to replace this. it is behind the blower motor, this is a common problem

      The problem is in Heater/AC Control Unit at the dash.When you’ll do proper diagnostic,problem will be there.Good luck.

      There should be no power to the resistor or dash switches with the key off.
      The contacts in the blower relay are welded closed.
      Check the schematic.
