Customer Question
Replaced the ac climate...

Replaced the ac climate control module on 2011 Tahoe LTZ with new GM part. Two things. The new one displays outside temp, the old did not. Second, the outside air reads a constant 55 deg as does the DIC display. Tried the instant update test by pressing the ac and recirc buttons, didn't change. Now what?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Chevy. The Chevy Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Just the instant update by pressing and holding the ac and recirc air buttons. Didn't fix it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Chevy Mechanic should know about your Chevy?

Only that the old ac control module did not display exterior air temp. The new one does however. This leads to believe the new module is an upgrade. It is genuine gm and new. The old module had sticky buttons and decals worn off.
