Hello,

Is sounds like a fuse or the MG circuit control relay. Here are some guides and diagrams (below) to help you do some testing and get the problem fixed.

If the fuses are good and the relay is good, then you will need to check the wiring.

If this checks out then the controller is bad and needs to be replaced.

Please run some tests and get back to us we are interested to see what it is.

Cheers, Ken

Is this referred to as the a/c integrated control panel? The a/c went out at the same time as the coolant temp gauge. After researching, it appears the coolant temp info is also sent through the same a/c integrated control panel. Does this make sense?

Same issue for me. I got another panel from LKQ and it also doesn't respond. All fuses tested and are good. Has anyone solved this issue yet?

We need to check for power at each of the system fuses not that the fuse is good the test is for power at the fuse. here is a guide and the fuse locations. Htr, CIG, Dome, Heater, RR heater and COS fan.

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what happens.

Took it to a shop today, gave them both units and explained the situation. They got back to me today and said that the harness is not giving power to the unit. So they found a short/broken wire near the connector and fixed it, everything works now.

When I turn the temperature control **** to max cold. The heater control valve goes all the way to the top and cold air blows. When I adjust the temperature off of "max". Even by just one degree. The heater control valve goes all the way to the bottom and hot air blows. So it seems that it is either all up or all down. I assume it should vary to allow cooler or warmer temperatures to come through heater core. I guess the heater control valve is ok and the control cable is ok. So is my problem the temperature control electronic parts are something different?

In american cars they are actuators but in yours they are servo motors. I've included a pic see if they are working corrrectly, especially the air mix one

Thanks for the quick response. Is there a way to determine if the problem is the servo or the actual control ****?

If it's vacuum turn the control toheat and see if you are getting vacuum. If you are and it's not working then it's the servo. If it's electricyou'll have to do the same but use a test light or vom

Ok. I still have no clue. I changed the air temperature control and the problem remains. What regulates the air mix servo? If it is only working from all hot or all cold. Then a relay, resister or some sort of module must tell it to stop in the middle to allow the air to mix to "warm". Any information would be greatly appreciated.

It's controlld by the control unit that says hot/cold. If it's vacuum it's how much is sent to it and if it's electrical ther ewill b a module inside teh control unit for it.

OK. Got it figured out. When I took car to dealership to have them repair the ignition switch, they unplugged the thermistor and never plugged it back in. It was located under the driver steering wheel behind the temperature sensor vent. I plugged it back in and it works perfectly. Thanks.

I have the SR5 model. AC panel lights up but neither the temperature nor the fan speed knobs do anything at all. None of the other climate control related buttons respond either, however, the 4WD, VSC and hazard buttons work. Fuses are all good. Any ideas?
