I have an intermittent (though growing worse) problem with the AC control panel. It doesn't seem to be getting power (lights on the buttons not coming on), and thus I have no vent/AC/heat control.

Occasionally, it will work, though that seems to be getting less and less.

It sounds electrical (loose connection-ish) to me, but before I embark on taking the bloody thing out, I'd like to know if there was something simple I can look for.

Thanks in advance,

Chris

unfortunately, nothing easy because the connector is behind the unit. So to even test if there's power and such at the connector, you'd have to take the unit out.

I'd try and get a used one from a junkyard or someone parting a legacy out and swap it in. You may want to also look in the parts shed of www.bbs.legacycentral.org

Yeah.. taking out the unit is a pain. Connectors all look pretty solid, so it's either the unit, or.... something else?

I hate electrical problems.

I would get a wiring diagram for the car. The factory manuals are the best. Using it you will know what wires need to checked for power. It will save you time and usually money also.
