    A buddy of mine has summit wheels and they fit my truck just fine. I like the -25 offset as well

    It either works as it should, or not at all.

    Hmm. That’s unusual. I’d suspect the switch in the dash then, maybe something’s gotten loose/corroded back there. I’d check that next.

    Was someone in here selling fox 2.5 coilovers? I took a screenshot to see if they fit 4runners and didn’t get the username in it. Now I can’t find the post hahah

    I sort of wondered if that could be a possibility as well. I don't know much about the AC systems, but they don't seem like they can be too terribly complicated (or maybe they are....?). I suppose I could look at the harness and see about jumping some pins to bypass the switch if it goes out again.

    Yeah, I mean in this case it seems like you have an electrical issue, so at least the actual A/C isn’t wrecked.

    I guess a good place to start is taking a multimeter to the blower harness to see if you’re even getting voltage there. If not, start working your way back. Who knows, maybe your blower is on the fritz and it’s as easy as that?

    Have you replaced the A/C clutch relay? I haven't had a problem with my Yota luckily but that's a common problem on Hondas.

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!
    That was my issue in my both of my 4runners; 03 & ‘06. AC would blow cold then, then would blow just air then cold again. I read up on that relay, pulled off the hwy cause I was going mad with no ac...changed it out and worked ever sense. Was pissed I did not see this fix before.

    At this point, I'm leaning toward blower or switch. Good idea on the multimeter. I hate tracing electrical problems.

    I have not yet. (Googles AC clutch relay.)

    I haven't started going down the AC clutch relay rabbit hole yet. The AC light stays on (does not flash), so I think that is a good sign. The difference between what you describe and what I'm experiencing is the fan. In the case of your 4Runners, the fan blew even though it wasn't cold. Mine either blows or it doesn't (which also blows...:D) I'm pretty sure it is either the switch or blower motor. Though I did notice a relay right next to the blower motor when I had the glove box out yesterday.


    I really do appreciate y'alls help and running through this with me. HVAC issues are not something I'm familiar with. Initial research signs pointed to the resistor, so I swapped it out. $40 is cheaper than I could take it anywhere and the amount of time saved with going somewhere was well worth it. Hopefully, I (we) can figure out the problem and save me the headache of having to concede to a "specialist."

    Hopefully it’s just the blower. That’s an easy swap. Can’t count the number of times I pulled mine out to regrease the motor. If you’re getting power to the blower harness AND it varies when you move the switch, you just lucked out. $40+15 min and you’ll be nice and cool again.

    Since the AC light stays on, I’m betting your compressor and such are fine (or at least no worse than they were before). That light typically flashes at the first little hiccup the compressor has, at least in my experience. But of course, I’m no expert by any means.

    We are up in TN for a concert and we left out Bluetooth speaker at home. Being that I can’t live without music we had to get another one.
    I went to the local Ace up here and picked up a BullFrog BF400. We got it for a steal because apparently they had it incorrectly priced at the store.
    Anyways, if your looking for so
    Eating with awesome sound and HD, this is killer.

    Anyone on here that's into Land Cruisers (I assume that would be all of us) Elite Land Cruiser based out of Texas has officially moved their headquarters to Buckhead GA. They are a restoration shop and sell Cruisers. I'd love to go visit and check them out.

    I may have to stop in my local ACE hardware and see if there is a similar mistake. I've been wanting to get a smaller BT speaker to take with us to the pool
