It's been a while since I've been learking around here but it's good to see the forum is alive and active.
I have a little problem with my 2000 Yukon XL I need your help with
I have 70ÃÂ°F at the front center vent while the 2nd & 3rd rows are down around 50ÃÂ°F
At first I thought I might have a clogged O tube for the front half but with the pressure being so close to what the service manual calls for I'm thinking I may have something more electrical related especiialy since this one is equipped with an EEC module.
1. Will a scantool along the lines of Autotap (with GM license) grab DTC's and sensor inputs from the EEC?
2. Will I set a MIL light if the EEC throws DTC's?
Any ideas on where to start? I won't get my hands on the Autotap until later tomorrow so I have spent today reading up on the service manual and specualting on what could be wrong. Before I go start pulling the dash apart to measure the temp potentiometer and duct temp sensor outputs any ideas on what typcially goes wrong?
Any help is appreciated
I just went out and tried something a little different; I only turned on the the front AC not BOTH front and rear as before.
Now I get the following data:
85ÃÂ°F outside air
80ÃÂ°F at front vent (down 10ÃÂ°F)
lowside 23-44psi (cycling)
hi-side 125-105psi (cycling)
10 seconds off 5 seconds on
I think I need to go look for a leak...

Recover/recharge with the factory amount into a good vacuum, add some UV dye and yes, start looking for the leak.. While you have the system empty, I'd check the O tube anyway, running it low you may find something, or not..but I'd check it..Hope this helps..
Freedoms just another word for nothing left to lose
Looking for a leak is a good idea; it sounds like you're a little low on refrigerant? When's the last time you added R134a? Ever?
