    I took my heater control out to change the lights that had burned out and now that I have it back together the only thing that works is the fan, the heat seems to be stuck at halfway and the defrost controls are stuck on one position no matter where the dial is, also the AC doesnt light up either. Is that strange or what, I believe there were only 2 plugs back there, I hope I didnt fry it.

    The fan controls are powered off a different fuse than the A/C main control unit. This suggests you may have blown the 10A A/C fuse (fuse box in the engine bay). If that fuse were blown and the A/C control unit lost power, it might explain the odd behavior.

    Are the HVAC panel illumination lights working? Do all the other dash illumination lamps work?
