Heat and A/C controls (fan speed switch)

Kindle Ford Jeep in south Jersey will not sell me the fan speed switch for my 97 TJ, they said I had to buy the whole cluster/console. WTF? And get this, they won't sell me O-rings to mount my new power steering box, that I would have to buy the 2 lines and the o-rings would come with those. Damn stealership!

The o-rings I got at a hydraulic shop, still looking for a fan speed switch though. Will check ebay/craigslist but wanted a new one. Thanks.

That's bs. I bought one at a California dealer about 6 months ago, $26.00. I heard it's a common part request (just the switch). You should also be able to find it online.

had the same problem with trying to find the switch so i ordered a new yj ac control switch and adjusted it here n there with just a hammer n a screw driver and removed the whole back portion of the yj switch (which is the prongs) and mounted it on the tj housing lol took me like 10 min good as new works great

I bought one at my local dealer twice. remember to keep your receipt. as it has a 12 month warranty.

So yeah, its available by itself. and its like 20 bucks IIRC.

I can likely get you a part number if you want one. (assuming it didn't change by 2001) PM me if you want me to look for the receipt. I believe its in my console.

Thanks for the replies. I was on a mini vacation and stopped at a different dealer, had 1 in stock, sold individually. Problem solved. Thanks everyone for helping.
