2005 Kia Sorento

Went to start my car this morning and the climate control was completely out no display and none of the buttons are working, checked all the fuses and they are fine? How do I fix it and what could be the problem?

After bringing the dash control unit (w/atc) in over night and then pluging it back in, (in the morning) it works again, can something it there freeze? And how can they charge almost 700.00 for that part I can go get a laptop that is less expensive than that, and im sure it has more involved/complicated parts than that thing!

Check for fuse in car and under the hood, one power is restored, if it doesnt work, we can read the fualt codes on the display panel, here's the fuse box layout fo in car:

Check all that have anything to do with heat, A/C, and defrost. Report back when done!

If it stays working, it could have been a poor connection, or bad solder on the cicuit board, inspect the pins on the board the connectors plug onto, solder isnt what it used to be since they removed the lead! I have seen pins wiggle or spin on boards, and a quik remelt of the solder fixes everything.
