2015 Silverado- climate control temp reading doesn't seem to

Customer Question

2015 Silverado- climate control temp reading doesn't seem to adjust itself properly. If its 50 degrees in the morning, the temp will stay at 50 even when the real temp goes up. Only way it adjusts itself is to drive at highway speed for 10-15 minutes, then it will start to climb. My AC isn't working properly either. Could be a function of the temp??

Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

You probably have a bad temp sensor. You have 4 temp sensors in the vents, one for the cabin temp, and another one for outside temp.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

If one is not reading correctly, you will have hvac performance problems. This should be under warranty.

The ac compressor will not even run if the outside temp is below 65 degrees.

Even when the outside temp reading finally adjusts itself to higher than what I have the auto climate control set to, I'm still not getting cold enough air. Like I said, I've charged the system and had it checked for leaks. Would a bad sensor cause this?
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Yes a faulty sensor will prevent the compressor from coming on. The only way to check the sensors is with the GM tech 2 scan tool.
