Weird A/C Problem
I have an '01 TJ that has a new problem. A week ago the 2 and 3 settings on my A/C went out. I understand that to be a typical problem and didn't really care that much since the 1 and 4 setting was still working.
Yesterday I turned on my Jeep and the 1 and 4 setting aren't working either, but when I switch it back to the 1 setting it gets really stiff and hard to put all the way down into the 1 spot. This had not happened before now. I can feel cold air in the vent, but it's coming out (on all settings) even slower than if it were on 1.
I couldn't find anyone else that was having the problem with the switch being hard to get back into the 1 setting so I thought I would start this new thread.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Sounds like a bad switch. My TJ has slide controls, (1997 and 1998) but i understand that when these switches go bad they get hot and melt inside. This may cause it to be hard to turn.

Thanks. Now I'll start looking up how to replace this. Hopefully it's not too difficult.
