Exclamation Climate controls

There seemed to be many people with CC issues... so I created this thread just for that issue.

I have just completed repairs on two separate CC issues

1. The blower speed switch only working on the top two settings. This was a pretty easy and straightforward fix, replacing the resistor on the blower motor housing.... about $25

2. The air deflector was not operating. Ours blew air only out of the defrost, and would not change when the selector was moved. This was a big surprise. Initially, I thought the CC panel was the culprit ($100) because of the above problem... the two separate issues had the panel in common. But after replacing it, the problem remained. Was ready to replace the actuator...but did some research on Google first. As it turns out, it was as simple as the vacuum hose coming off of the intake manifold. It just "popped" off... and this was the source of vacuum for the CC panel controls. So, I popped in back on...everything worked as it should.

I consider myself lucky to have such an easy fix, though it took a few days to get both issues corrected. I felt that others might be helped by this discovery, and hopefully you have read this before shelling out a non-refundable $100 for a new CC panel...

I just started having your second problem about three days ago. Which line was yours that popped off? The brake booster line?

Look on the side of the intake manifold, about half way down its length, a little low. You should see 2 or 3 3/8" vacuum lines going to the intake. Actually... if it is the problem... just look for a shiny nipple stick out where the line should be. Good luck, let me know if it helped!

Yeah... I was thinking that about the pics, too

you'll need to lie upside down and look up behind the glove box (for lighting...it might help to take glove box out). It might be easier for you if you remove the light down there. You're looking on the side of the blower motor housing for a (2" wide) "flat four" electrical connection. It will have two 5/16" nut screws holding it. I believe there is also a red lock on the connector, as well... should be able to slide off with some effort. Hope this helps. If I find some time and inclination, I'll take a pic and upload it. The part should be at your local dealer, about $20 for the resistor. G/L... let us know if you got it!
