I'm wondering if my recirc door is not moving? When I hit the recirc button it lights up and I hear the chime but I don't hear a door closing under the dash. Should I hear anything to know when it switches to recirculate mode?

It's a Buick.  You shouldn't be hearing that stuff unless the modules are worn out.

Mine doesn't chime though - must have been added after 97.

When I hit the RECIRC button, I can hear how the quiet "whoosh" of the air gradually changes (it takes 2-3 seconds), so I know for sure the door is moving. Although I can't hear the door or actuator itself.
And yes, any button does chime.

I did try and listen to the change in air noise. I will listen again today because it's supposed to be blistering. The chyme is a setting I believe in the personal choice features.

I'd kinda like to hear the chime now.

edit - now that I think about it, mine chimes too. It's been a while since I've used it.

The other day I tried the RECIRC feature for the first time in 7 years on my 97, I did hear a chime but I did not hear an actuator or change in fan speed. Also the temp coming out of the vents did not change either as is the case in my other cars. I have been using a temp gauge in my vents this summer as it has been unusually hot with a number of "heat waves" and am checking the performance of AC in all my cars at various settings. My Riv is blowing around a consistent 35 degrees which is great!

That is colllld. Good to know you did not hear any noise or change which is the same for me.

IIRC the air conditioner automatically goes into recirc mode if it's hotter than a certain temperature, when you first turn it on. Details in the service manual.

Had no idea, what a smart car. Thanks Albert.
