Impala actuators

Asked by Jan 29, 2017 at 07:32 PM about the 2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm in the midst of replacing the driver's side
actuator for the second time and when plugging in
the new one it began to turn. Now, I probably
should have disconnected the battery but I didn't
even so the actuator shouldn't be running when the
car is off right?  So might it be a faulty contact,
terminal, or....? I don't know much about cars,
electrical stuff, or anything really but I know
eventually plastic teeth on a gear will break if it's
continues to try turning a post that is not moving.
Thank you all for sharing!

Definitely sounds like a short in the climate control circuit. With the ignition off the actuator should not be getting power. That's probably the underlying cause for the first two actuators failing. HTH. -Jim

Hi Eddy. Thanks! I guess it's because I have a lot of typos myself. Hahaha. -Jim
