    Ok first post.....

    My climate control is having issues, I would say about 75% of the time AC and Heater only works on High. All of the other settings yield no blower. Also the lights to all 3 dials are not working (i tapped the console and they worked for a few minutes). Anybody have some ideas as to how to get this fixed? I think I have something loose but done wanna just tear into it.

    Thanks!

    If the dial lighting worked when you tapped on it you need to remove the Control head and replace the bulbs in the back of it. They are held in by little plastic holders that can be removed with a small flathead screwdriver. They are only available from the stealership.

    Your blower motor problem sounds like the resistor is bad. But based on what I've read on here you should replace the resistor & blower motor together, cause when the motor starts to go bad it blows out the resistor.

    Great Link THANKS!!

    I bought the car with 41,000 miles from a small dealership 2 weeks ago. I didnt notice the blower problem until a few days ago.... I dont think it is still under warrany? I am calling the dealership tomorrow but feel they will give me a hardtime. I noticed the rear TSB is not done either but I'm positive I'm to late for that one. Loaded up my camping gear and some friends and was bottoming out on bumps.

    The wierd thing is it works then it stops then it will work again keeps going in and out... i'm thinking something has gotta be loose.

    Camper top with racks, Custom fogs behind lower bumper. Interior LED lighting, Rock Lights, Hella 500s with upraged bulbs behind black billet grill, AAL, Front 5100s
    Sounds like a blown bulb and the spring in the mode selector needs some grease. See my post in the other thread.
