Where would you suggest...

Where would you suggest getting a climate control part for a 2002 buick park avenue (besides dealership)? Thanks

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to discuss this further with you. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

The reason why I am replacing it is because the rear defrots does not work and the air flow button does not change the different choices of air flow (front defrost, middle, or flow) it is stuck on the floor, and right now I need a front defrost - I live in KS where its freezing. So my question is would the mechanic think its the climate control part?

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Buick Park Avenue. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

No there is no more information that I can give the mechanic. Thanks

do I get all three parts: Main Control; Passenger; AC programmer or when I go to the salvage yard do I get all three when I take it from a car (salvage yard). Also which one of the three is usually the problem or goes bad. I tried to explain in my first question how it is acting up.
Thanks for your quick response.
Tim

The best thing , prior to replacing anything is to have the Heating / A/C scanned via GM Dealer Scan Tool or Equal to "pinpoint" the issue
This will tell you if it is the Control Head or the Programmer........
These Units work from "DATA" & is hard to test without Scan Tool
Some Auto Shops can test for less than Dealer

This sounds like a "Actuator", but Scan Tool is needed to Test that also

Thanks, ***** ***** your help. I think I will have a GM dealer use the scan tool, so that I am not spending alot of time and $$$.
If I have a Dealer Scan it for me, then I can find the part myself. Thanks so much for your help. Tim

Correct, but it is always best to check with Dealer to verify in case GM changed.......as those are right out of GM Factory Service Manual
