Default tach in the climate control? -- old sticky

Program Info for Automatic Climate Control

Readout Settings -
-06 tach
-08 coolant temp (F)
-14 speed (MPH)
-24 coolant temp (C)

Instructions for putting ACC in diagnostic mode -
- turn ignition to ON position (or start vehicle)
- press and hold the temp up and OFF buttons at the same time until the unit does a full segment check.
- Release the buttons.
- Display should read -00... you are now in diagnostic mode
- Using the fan up/down buttons, select desired function from above
- press middle

Have fun!

The climate control actually has even more data available than the items shown.

I keep a printout in the glovebox.

It was VERY useful having the speedometer function when calibrating my new speedometer

i can only recover this also :


I've wanted to get a list together to see all of the ones we know/figured out

Here are the ones I know of:

-02 HVAC Trouble Codes
-05 Program #
-06 Tachometer (RPMs / 100)
-07 Commanded Blower Speed (0-128)
-08 Coolant Temp (°F)
-14 Vehicle Speed (MPH)
-15 Temp Cal Offset
-18 Sun Load Sensor
-20 Current Temp Valve Position
-22 Temp Valve Position @ Cold
-23 Temp Valve Position @ Hot
-24 Coolant Temp (°C)
-25 Commanded Temp Valve Position
-27 Air Delivery Mode
-28 Inside Air Temp (0-255 where 128=75°F)
-31 Outside Air Temp (0-255 where 128=49°F)
-37 EEPROM Revision #

Now some of these require special proceedures to adjust, so if you mess them up, don't whine to me. You should be able to view them, but don't experiment with pushing other buttons on the CC as some of them have other functions.

If anyone else knows any more, please add a post and I will add them to the list for reference.

From our sticky at buickforums.com.....

Did you know that you can access your Engine(and other) trouble codes thru the Climate Control? Did you also know that you can accurately monitor the engine RPM, vehicle speed, coolant temp, and others? If so, good job! If not, look at this!


This is for 94-96's!!



*Please note, some of this was info copied directly from ISSF.



Instructions for putting ACC in diagnostic mode -
- turn ignition to ON position (or start vehicle)
- press and hold the "temp up" and "OFF" buttons at the same time until the unit does a full segment check.
- Release the buttons.
- Display should read -00... you are now in diagnostic mode
- Using the fan up/down buttons, select desired function from above
- press the "middle" Button. It should be in the top right corner on the CC.
- To Exit the trouble code area, and go back to the -00 display, hit the "Middle" button again.

Have fun!

You will see -00. You can change the funtion(it will say -01, -02, etc) with the fan up, and down buttons. Here is a list of what all the -00 numbers mean.


Here are the most common you will need to know

-00 PCM diagnostics codes
-01 CCM Diagnostic trouble codes
-02 HVAC Diagnostic trouble codes
-03 SIR Diagnostic trouble codes
-04 ABS/TC Diagnostic trouble codes
-06 Engine RPM
-08 Coolant Temp (°F) - Reading taken at Cylinder head sensor, typically 20* cooler than the -24 reading
-14 Vehicle speed
-24 Coolant Temp (°C) - Reading taken at the Water Pump sensor, This is what the PCM uses to control the fans.

Can anyone confirm that you can pull diagnostic codes from the HVAC on a 96 RMS? I know it works on 94/95 cars, but I just picked up my first 96 and it's got some issues.
http://www.impalassforum.com/vBullet...d.php?t=253993

It has a check engine light on, but I haven't been able to get a code to display on the HVAC... I don't trust driving it to the parts store yet to use their scanner...

This is all that I have Goldy from Alldata, it may help but not sure.

Diagnostic Trouble Codes can be accessed thru the H-AC Control Panel.

CURRENT AND HISTORY DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES
If the ACAC system detects an error within the HVAC system, a current and history diagnostic trouble code (DTC) will be set. Once the failure is no longer detected, the DTC will be stored only as history trouble code. A two-digit code is a current DTC and the same two-digit code preceded by a "1" is a history DTC. History codes will be stored for 199 ignition cycles. When the counter gets to 199, all history trouble codes will be cleared and the counter will be set back to zero. There will not be any indication to the operator that a failure has been detected or that a current or history trouble code is stored in the H-A/C control memory unless the self-diagnostic mode is entered. If an HVAC DTC is set, the H-A/C control will use a "default value" until the DTC has been cleared or repaired.

TO ENTER THE "ACAC DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM CHECK"
To enter the "ACAC Diagnostic System Check," press the "TEMP" up switch and the "OFF" switch on the control panel at the same time. Upon entry, a segment check will be performed and then the graphic display will show pointer number "-00". If the compressor clutch is being requested, the "EXT TEMP" graphics will be displayed. The fan up and fan down switch can be used to increase and decrease the pointer number. The "MIDDLE" switch can be used to change from pointer number -02 to DTC or parameter values for pointers "05-31."

TO DISPLAY HVAC DTCs
To display HVAC DTCs. select pointer number "-02". and press the "MIDDLE" switch. At this time any current and history trouble codes will be displayed. A failure indicates that the control has detected an open, short to ground or faulty component in that circuit. While that failure is detected, the control will use a default value. When the graphic display is displaying numbers 200 to 299, they appear as numbers 100 through 199 with a "-" in front of them. For example. the value of 200 would be displayed as "-100."

CLEARING DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES
HVAC DTCs can he cleared from H-A/C control by pressing the "OFF" button while in diagnostic pointer number "-02" while the HVAC DTCs are displaying.

To exit the self-diagnostic mode, press the AUTO" switch.

Thanks Mike, but that doesn't help any. You get an A for effort though The first selection in diagnostic mode (-00)is supposed to be for PCM codes. But when I hit the "middle" button, all I get is - - So I don't know that the HVAC system will pull OBD 2 codes or not.

I'm pretty sure I know why the CEL is on, but would like to see what all is stored. Guess I'll have to borrow a scanner from a guy at work. It also flashes from time to time while the engine is running, so I assume that is PO300 random multiple misfire (which it definitely has lol) Has 170K and the wires look original, I wouldn't doubt if the plugs are too. But opti and waterpump have been replace before with what looks like el cheapo stuff. So I'm gonna do plugs, wires, opti, wp, seals and fix the heater core and see what happens... Still gotta go through and check the fuel pressure and stuff first, but I'm pretty confident it's in the ignition system.
