There should have been a replacement belt tensioner piece in the belt kit as well to prevent belt slipping. Was it installed after the belt was replaced?
Remember to not attempt to run the engine any longer, replace the belt and tensioner again, regap the rockers if required and reindex the cam and crank marks per the step by step service manual instructions. I hope your piston / valve setup is a non-blocking type.

You need to find a mechanic that is good with Chrysler wiring. It sounds to me like you are having an issue with your TIPM, but it is also quite possible you have corroded wires to the TIPM. Finding your issue can take quite a bit of time to trace, even for an experienced mechanic.

First, recalibrate the air handler by the following procedure;
From the Equinox Service Manual
1. With the ignition on, simultaneously press the A/C and Recirc buttons, 3 times in less than 2 seconds
2. Verify that the A/C and Recirc LEDs are flashing, Wait 15 seconds for calibration to complete
3. After calibration is complete, press the A/C and Recirc buttons to verify proper LED tracking to function selected

If this does not correct the air handling issue, have the nearest dealership diagnose possible loose electrical connections , broken air dam doors, etc.

Best of luck.
