Probably a heater core starting to leak(better take care of it now before it blows wide open!).You might be lucky enough to find a loose heater hose clamp/defective hose is allowing coolant to seep onto the core,so check that first.

One possible cause for this would be is the mass air flow sensor which is located on the air filter box. I recently paid around $90 dollars for one. I don't know if this part can be checked or not.

Another likely cause is the fuel pump. I had this problem recently and this was the cause. The pump is mounted in the top of the fuel tank. You can have someone check the fuel pressure coming to the fuel rails on top of the engine to verify that this is the problem. The easiest way to change the pump is to remove the bed, giving easy access to the pump. These pumps are still rather expensive, in the range of $200 dollars new.

follow top hose to engine. and you will find it. the hose goes directly on thermostat housing, do not forget to replace with new gasket. on housing, remove the left bolt then the right bolt then pull off housing, then you will see thermostat. drain radiator some to keep from losing to much anti-freeze. Good-day!

Check your transmission fluid level and top off with approved fluid as needed. Do not over fill.

The fluid should have an oily smell and feel. It should be pinkish - red in color. Dark or brown fluid - or fluid that smells burnt is an indication of neglect. You *may* be able to solve this with a flush / refill of the fluid - but no one will guarantee it.

Good luck!

Ok the description of problem is lacking some information so I will give you a few places to start from the easy to the difficult. When you say will not turn on I assume you are referring to the blower motor. You do not mention what car or truck assuming that I was in the Chevy section you have a GM car or truck.

Start at the fuse panel and see if there is a defective fuse. (note I have see fuses that look ok but hare bad so if you are not absolutely sure it is cheep to just replace or try a know good if you do not have a tester. The next and most likely culprit is the blower resistor. This is located on the heater box depending on the model /year and options it can be inside car or out side under hood. Replacement can be a two hammer to a all out 4 hammer depending on where it is buried. if the resistor is burned up it is common to have the harness end burned up too so check the end that plugs into harness for melted or burnt contacts, a good tell tail sign is that the plug in harness is melted to the resistor. If the resistor checks out and all is good there then check the blower motor. The blower motor should be checked if the resistor is defective too as a faulty motor that binds or has defective bearings can place heavy loads on the resistor causing it to fail. With out much to go on with your question if the motor is blowing but not much air is moving then check the filter if equipped. I did not mention the control panel as this is usually the last par to become defective on most GM cars and trucks... good luck

P0410 code is set when the air injection system does not blow air into the exhaust system. The monitor that runs and test the system is the Oxygen sensors. With the truck cold follow the air supply hoses to the exhaust check valves. The air pump is located by the heater box under the hood on top of fender well. The exhaust check valves are screwed onto the injection pipes that are connected to the exhaust manifold. remove these and test blowing into them air should only pass one direction (hose side to threaded side only) this is the most common failure. Pump should run on a cold engine and can be heard with hood open if not operating check fuses and relay okay then use jumper wires to test motor is should operate does not replace.

What engine does your 2500 HD have? Is it a 6.6 diesel, a 6.0 gas, or an 8.1 gas engine? If it's a gas engine, the A/C compressor belt may have snapped (common). The gas engines used a separate, smaller belt to drive the compressor, while the larger serpentine belt runs the rest of the accessories. Diesel engines only have one belt that runs all accessories, including the A/C compressor.
