    Hello, I have a 2005 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport and the recirculating air button keeps turning OFF and ON by itself. Any ideas?? Thanks!

    image.jpg image.jpg I should probably also add that I can only run my fan on high because the plug burnt up. I'm not sure if that helps at all.

    Once you rectify the plug problem make sure you tweak the terminals on the blower motor resistor. The reason they cause high resistance issues is due to poor contact on the plug. Tweaking the terminals will provide much better contact to the plug and will keep those issues you have at bay.

    Fire hazard. It's either arcing and sparking due to poor connection, or you have another issue ie: high current draw through motor/resistor

    Loose connection = high resistance = heater = burned wiring.

    You need to replace that connector. Period. Unless you like fire.

    Parts needed:
    Connector: P/N 82141-04M40
    Resistor Assy: P/N 87138-04052

    He recirculating air would come on when my truck would try to overheat also.
