@  RegalTraveler : (07 July 2015 - 04:55 PM) Yup. That's the one I replaced. It was a pain. Honestly not sure my hand would have fit through there if I weren't so hot and sweaty the day I did it.
@  scottydoggs98 : (07 July 2015 - 01:46 PM) http://www.grandprix...tor-Replacement says gp, but its the same damn thing. ive battled with them a lot over the years.
@  scottydoggs98 : (07 July 2015 - 01:45 PM) the blend doors control the hot and cold air. or the mix of both. they are electric.
@  RegalTraveler : (07 July 2015 - 01:27 PM) are there other blend doors for the cabin besides the two for driver and passenger? The defroster runs on vaccum, I know that b/c I temporarily disabled it while swapping out this blender.
@  RegalTraveler : (07 July 2015 - 01:26 PM) the d/s blend door is the one i replaced.
@  scottydoggs98 : (07 July 2015 - 01:07 PM) r/t your blend door actuator likely took a dump, take it off and turn the knob by hand. or try resetting them by pulling the hvac fuse for a minute and putting it back in.
@  RegalTraveler : (06 July 2015 - 10:18 PM) Here's a question for you guys. A while back I had the iconic issue of not getting cold air on the drivers side, while getting cold air on the passenger side. I finally replaced the D/S actuator and it was cracked.
But now I'm having in issue where my car only pumps out slightly cool air and it takes quite a while to even get that. Hooked up the R134 guages and the number looked relatively okay. We went ahead and put in a little more. The pump runs, but the low-side pressure never dropped and now there's about 90lb on the low-side.
Swapped out the exterior temp sensor and no change.
Any thoughts?
@  Daddy4barrel : (05 July 2015 - 01:33 AM) getting hot too
@  Daddy4barrel : (05 July 2015 - 01:31 AM) had to change heater hose to heater core
@  Daddy4barrel : (05 July 2015 - 01:31 AM) both radiator hoses collapse. air in system?
@  buck531 : (01 July 2015 - 05:50 PM) nevermind. figured it out.
@  buck531 : (01 July 2015 - 05:38 PM) Anyone on? Wild?
@  99RegalClone : (30 June 2015 - 02:52 AM) @glendayle ive unlokced the front door then almost instantly hit it again, but only unlocks the front. Im about to order wheel hubs from rockauto, dont want to fix everything just enough to get it running/stopping so i can sell it.
@  glendayle : (24 June 2015 - 06:17 AM) it unlocks the drivers door. If you press the unlock key again within like 3 or 5 seconds it unlocks the rest of the doors.
@  glendayle : (24 June 2015 - 06:17 AM) yes, it could be. I've had this problem and about every other problem known over the 13 years I've had my car.
@  99RegalClone : (24 June 2015 - 05:42 AM) i also noticed when u unlock the doors with the key fob it doesnt unlock ALL the doors just the front.
@  99RegalClone : (24 June 2015 - 05:39 AM) i'll check the fluid later today and see if i can get the SES light off. i know how to get it off, with the key on but not started pump the gas pedal slow 3 times within 5 seconds right?
@  99RegalClone : (24 June 2015 - 05:38 AM) ok glen. i did some search and it could be a bad wheel hub sensor
@  glendayle : (24 June 2015 - 05:37 AM) SES is probably unrelated to the ABS/trac off. Could just be low brake fluid.
@  99RegalClone : (24 June 2015 - 03:57 AM) i have the 3 lights on ABS trac off and service engine soon. are those indicative of a bad wheel sensor?

never checked our staff page to notice i wasnt on there ive been here almost a year now lol...just puttin on there we have one for less than preferred price...its $750 back of preferred minus rebates..ive been on the web along time i figure i know alot about these new GS's and could provide some good info to the forum members about changes and what not..for insance you guys see the 2013 regal GS is gonna be offered in auto and E-Assist is gonna be standard on non turbo models?..i used to work for Ford before i switched over and i was a member on the SVT forum and provided some insight over there..they are also doing the buick experience right now and have cheap $0 down 24 month leases and give u free maintenance/xm/onstar for the entire lease so if u have been thinkin about trying out a new buick you may wanna stop in your local dealer and check it out. nice to meet you all...i promise im not here to spam your board with car listings but if i have something special or unique i may from time to time post it in here..if there is anything i can do to assist you let me know ill do whatever i can to help

FYI if you give me a VIN# i can give you the invoice, build ticket, and vehicle history on most GM cars (mostly 2000my+ but some of the 90's still show up) and see if there are any open recalls or if the car has had a bunch of previous service work done on it

Rep ? I just checked mine. It's only 13. With as many helpful posts as we have , I doubt this rep system is an accurate gauge for your character on the board anyways.

Mike, welcome. Since your not a "spam bot" , may I suggest posting in the "welcome" section ? That way we can all get to know you and you can tell us some info on your background.
It would be a great asset to have someone like yourself with the connections that you have.

I don't ever look/care, except that my post has a big red "-1" on it.

My "attitude" has nothing to do with you being a dealer. How about having an intro thread that says something along the lines of. "Hi, I'm Mike. I work at _____ I joined your forum this morning. Obviously I sell cars and would love to talk to any of you with questions around the brand new GS. In fact, check out the for sale section where I've posted a good deal I have right now.(link). In addition, My background is w Ford and the SVT line. I was actively involved in several of those forums before I switched over to the current Buick dealership where I work now. I'm also very familiar with the W-bodiy platform and in general am a car enthusiest.. ...."

When you join a forum and the very 1st post is about your car for sale I think that takes from credibility. Certainly I think people that work at dealerships can be an asset to a community like this due to access to various tools/mechanics and being in the industry. I just think your method of introduction didn't strike the proper cord with me.

I will recant my negative statement, and say Welcome and enjoy!

Trumped, the thing is we have a nice forum here without all the bs drama and spam you see in other forums. The staff members do an outstanding job of keeping things that way. So when we see that someone's first post is pretty much an ad from a dealer well, its annoying. Like glendale said an introduction post would have helped.

Mike nothing personal but when someone shows up and the first thing that they do is try to sell us something if throws up big warning sign for me. While what you can offer is very intriguing to most of us there are a number who have access to the same. My best suggestion is continued interaction in the community and offering help word of advise where applicable, and see what happens.

As mentioned a drop into the welcome section would be a good place to start.

^^^What glendayle and March1 said^^^.....Welcome! It's like there's an alternative motive when this happens and unfortunately, it comes out periodically from established members and I've questioned a few 1st posts by newbies as well. This is one of those times.

Paul, I also believe that newbies shouldn't be allowed to rate a post until they have enough activity on this site to the point where they understand what each member is about, say 500 posts. This amount of posts would allow the right amount of time to interact on this board to at least get a feel for other members and what they're about.

Personally I don't like the post count to sell stuff. I don't feel like it's been a major issue. I joined a Chevy Forum when I bought my new truck and am active on the forum. I had some good parts to sell, but couldn't list an item until I had 100 posts or something like that, so I posted a bunch of garbage just so I could sell it. Just my 2 cents. Although at the same token sometimes newbies join to post parts for sale, but never check the thread/PMs which is annoying so I see both sides.

I agree. I don't think anyone would want to miss out on some parts or a nice car cuz someone can't post FS stuff until they have a certain number of posts. Maybe some guidelines in the FS section. If problems keep arising then institute a post quota for posting FS posts.
