Me too. Bad blend door aaahhhhh!!!
Just replaced the air blend door and air blend actuator. The actuator was froze and thus broke the air blend door. Took it to local auto shop (not dealer)-~$700.

Add another one !!! No heat in my equinox 2006. I am not impressed to see all the comments. Now I know how much it will cost me... Thanks for posting this problem. Probably saved me a few hundred dollars for the diagnostic.

2006 Equinox - list of problems?
- Blows cold air
- CD player won't accept CD's
- Sunroof & back door window both have air leaks
- SES light comes on randomly (dealer: ignore it)
- Doesn't want to start if engine has only been off a few minutes.
- Sometimes need to crank a couple times to start
- Thumping noise - from brakes?- occasionally
- Lost power steering the other day - 1st time
- Probably have a leak somewhere - smells musty
Bought mine because my brother and SIL both work for GM. Never again. My sister traded in her Malibu because of unending problems. Why are we bailing them out?

Heater went out on my Equinox like everyone else. Taking to a mechanic to see if this is the problem as everyone else.

2006 Torrent - same problem with a $1,500.00 repair bill. GM refuses to acknowledge this is a problem. Add me to the list of people who, after 30 years of buying new GM vehicles, will never buy another of their vehicles. I am also committed to influencing as many of my friends and family to do likewise.

Well i have a 06 and mine is blowing fuses... The back up fuse. And when you change it it will start back. But until then it wont do anything.. I'm not sure what to do but the dealer that i bought it from want 78.00 an hour to look at it. He has to try to fine it cant use a machine, hell it might cost me 1000.00 just to fine the problem.. I am very dissapointed in theses vehicles and i think we all should take them back and trade them for a Toyota . Thats the only vehicle that seems to be any good....

Wow, this site is kind of sad, but in another way am glad I am not the only one. I have a 2006 Torrent, I have replaced the wheel bearings 4 times, replaced the fuse for the day time running lights twice and it needs to be replaced again, and now my heater is blowing cold air. This is by far the worst car I have ever bought. I will NEVER buy another GM vehicle. They should be ashamed to have sold any of these!!!

I had the power steering thing too. Happened one time. PS pump is electric, not powered by a belt. so electrical glitch can cause it to stop. my sunroof had a hidden leak that sent water all the way into the dash. caused a wiring failure that sent car into limp mode. spent 2 weeks in shop, fortunately covered under warranty. You may want to check into that leak issue.

So I am tracking this thread because my blend door went out, and it's not under warranty. so no heat. Anyone know if there is some way I can manually flip the door the other way so i have heat? i practically never use the A/C and can live w/o it if it takes $1000 to get the door fixed. but winter is coming and i need heat!
