How to Troubleshoot the Air Conditioning in a Chevy Camaro

by Contributor

If the air conditioner is not properly working in your Chevy Camaro, try and troubleshoot the problem yourself. You may be pleasantly surprised that it is an easy fix. I

Look first at the graphics display on the dashboard. If it is blank, or if the air flow controls do not work properly, the problem is in the control panel. Disconnect the battery first.

Remove the trim panels on the passenger side, unscrew the 4 panel screws, and detach the cables from the controls. Unplug the electrical connector and remove the control panel.

Listen for the blower motor to make sure it is working. With the engine on, turn on the air and adjust the pressure. The normal accompanying sound indicates the blower motor is working properly. If it is not, remove the blower motor in a Camaro by removing the right side instrument panel, unplugging the electricity to the blower fan and then unbolting it.

Check the fuses next if the controls appear to be fine but have no effect on the air. There are three different fuse boxes in a Chevy Camaro. The AC fuse is located under the hood in the engine compartment on the driver's side of the car. It is in the lower left corner of the box. Look at the silver metallic strip in the fuse. If it is broken or melted, it needs to be replaced.

Locate the control panel. The control panel needs to be removed before checking the control cables that circulate the air. Find the cable that extends from the heating and air conditioning unit. It will be small and black. Inspect it along with its connections to make sure there are no leaks.
