Question False air conditioner code

Hi,
I have a 2005 Ion 1 that continues to throw a a/c fault code.Since the car doesn't have a/c this is a problem! The dealer has tried just about everything they can think of to locate the source with no luck. I'm to the point of getting rid of the car as it is soon off warranty. This is a shame because I really like it. Does anyone have any ideas as to the possible cause of the false code?

Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I would guess it is an ECM calibration problem. Has the ECM been reflashed for any reason? Anything at all been replaced recently? If the dealer would call the technical assistance center they could get a new calibration sent to them that would be vehicle specific.

Do you know what code is causing the SES light?

Welcome to the Board.

Unless the SES light is coming on then don't worry about it.
We see this on many non AC ION's. If your car is like the ones that we see then you will have no SES light for the code and you will have no driveability problems.

Question Re: False air conditioner code

The dealer has replaced the ecm& been in contact with gmTech. I'm afraid I don't have the actual codes.The dlr. did replace the passenger's side airbag assembly last year.(another trouble code) This a/c problem has only presented itself since then. I am wondering if it's possible that the wiring harness behind the dash could have been pinched and now shorting from the a/bag replacement.

Yes, the car runs fine but it does continually turn the light on. You can reset but the light is back on the next restart.
