Hello V1nny2, Thank you for your post. Sorry to hear you're having this issue. Unfortunately, I'm unable to diagnose but if you would like to send me your VIN, I could research to see if there are any open recalls, special coverages related to the issue your having with your ac/heater. I look forward to your reply. My email address is socialmedia@gm.com. Vanessa GM Customer Service


I have the same issue with my 08 Malibu. It only seems to happen when I have the setting on 1 though..the motor is right under your dash. If i put pressure on it it stops, when i let it go it resumes. I havent figured out a fix yet but im working on it.
