Did your AC go out?

Mine did, and the dealer I took it to said there was a fresh TSB for it. It's taken them 3 days, though :( and I have to drive this super basic fleet Silverado around. Yikes. Give me my baby back already!

yea there was a tsb to reprogram the bcm in order to prevent the a/c from breaking. most likely yours broke and now they have to do the full repair.

Appears the whole compressor went out. I'm going tomorrow and asking for a different rental... this Silverado's not cutting it.

Finally got my baby back Friday. Thank the Lord my A/C works now! They brought in a whole new compressor, hoses, and some seals. Glad to be back in my ride.

My AC stopped working yesterday. Guess I'll ask about the rear end making the grinding noise on tight, low speed turns while I'm there. 8k miles, so far I'm not really impressed.

My last camaro did that with the rear grinding. I ignored it... then again.. the car was 12 years old and the gears hummed at 60mph.. it shouldn't be doing that I'd think.

if my a/c stops working I'm going to be very upset. Is there some kinda TSB on this?

DarkFox, if you want to know if this AC reprogram is active on your vehicle send me your VIN and I can take a look at it. I hope this helps you and everyone else here.

Jeff, can you tell me if my car is part of the A/C TSB? I just bought it, used with 2200 miles on it, so I don't know if I will receive a letter since I didn't buy it new.

Vin# 2G1FK3DJ0B9192529. Not sure if that is a zero or the letter O.

Jeff, this is part of a recall? How long has the recall been in effect for the potentially affected vehicle? My car was purchased 4/18/2012. I called the service dept. about 2 weeks later and they said there were no recalls on my vin.

DarkFox, there is a program for the AC for the Camaro. Whether this is the same issue or not I'm not sure. Ringo and Dan, both of your vehicles only have the convertible top enhancement program. I hope this helps all of you.

So if I have 58k miles, 3 years, a blower, cam and long tubes and a tune will they fix my obviously Fed up AC?

Mines been out since last summer. I think it's why my fan stays on so much.

Blows cool about 15% of the time.

"program" meaning?

I guess I'll have to call my dealer again..

I will be VERY mad if my a/c stops working. I bought this car because I couldn't fix the a/c on my 4th gen after spending $1400 on parts. Here in GA a car is worthless without a/c.
