2012 Standard w/ Navigation
Another piece to the puzzle my gf just reminded me about. I did a pre condition a week or so ago and when we came out my gf asked me if the ICE was running because it was super loud. It was not the ICE without a doubt. Could this be a sign the coolant pump bearings went? Would there be any stored codes if that's the case?
And today while we where sitting in the car, heat set to high and ERDTT set to the cold setting but ICE not running there was a very odd, very loud noise that sounded like a thrown belt on a normal ICE car that came from behind the gauge cluster. I want to guess that it was coolant flowing but I've never heard it before and it was incredibly loud for that. Lasted about 5 seconds. It happened about 20-30 seconds after ICE shut off.
Anybody have any insight to offer? I have absolutely no heat unless the ICE is running. I'm going to try and command the water pump on with my scan tool this coming week if I get time.
Check all the coolant reservoirs and make sure they are properly filled with the proper coolant. My 2013 heater problem was fixed after a leak was repaired and reservoir refilled. I think there are three coolant reservoirs, not sure which is for what system.

Should be simple. If the power draw increases when you call for heat, and there is no heat, it's likely the pump. If there is no increased power demand, blame the heater.

Took it to a dealer tonight. Tech didn't know anything about volts but followed the procedures in the tech manual. Thinks it's the heater control module and needs to look at the date on it. They aren't sure if it's covered or not but will call GM for a good faith repair. He stopped because he didn't wanna go to far and get a bill racked up when he wasn't sure what to do and didn't want me to pay for him to learn so I think I owe him a beer.
