i have a 2001 chevy silverado that has a problem with the heater/ac switch when you try to switch from heat to ac you still get hot air from the vents, but when you start the truck on a hot day and need ac you get cold air. any ideas?

I have noticed a similar problem on my 2000 GMC Sierra. When the
heater is on and the tempature gets warm in the truck, turning down the
temperature dial doesn't change the temperature of the heat coming
out. I notice that if I stop the truck and later restart it, then
it works properly for awhile.
Did you find a solution to your problem, or has anyone else figured it out?
I have a 2001 Silverado with the same heater problem. The AC works just fine in the summer or winter, but as soon as you turn the control knobto heat, the temperature seems to stick on heat. You can move the control **** back to cool, but until the truck sits for about 10-20 minutes shut off, hot air continues to comeout of the vents.
I dug intomy heater problem this weekend, and found the problem to be a bad heater actuatorGM #52474810.Once I pulled the actuator out, I did a quick search on the part number, and foundmanyother people with the same problem. The fix has been documented many times, and here is one link that pretty much sums it all up! I hope this helps! Fairly easy fix, just one difficult screw to get out. You'll want to have a deep wall 7mm socket for this.
The same happened to my silverado. If your battery dies or is changed you have to reset your climate computer. Disconnect the negative terminal for 15 min and set all your climate controls to the off position. Reconnect your battery and turn your key to run not start. The dash will light up and you can hear all your actuator doors moving to the reset positions. That should solve your problems.
i have a 1995 chevy pickup. Cant get heat to the defrost,or the floor. When i turn the dial it sounds like there is plenty of air but it seems to be going somewhere other then the cab of the truck. any ideas?
