Question A/C & Heater Controls

Hi Everyone,

This morning the left knob on the vent controls didn't work. It's stuck on the defrost mode. Does anyone know where that cable attaches to? The a/c and recirculate buttons work as well as the heater know and flap.

The knob isn't broken and the cable is fastened to the back of the control module. There was a cracking noise this am so I figured the module might be bad on the left side.

Any ideas to trouble shoot?

Thank you in advance

Did you remove the center bezel to check..?? if a hold down clip is broken, the cable will have too much slack. Follow the cable from the knob to where it connects...looking for damage at both ends.

I would take the cable off the back of the knob, then see if you can turn the knob, or operate the cable manually, that should isolate the problem to one or the other.

Question Re: A/C & Heater Controls

I removed the center bezel when the vent knob is turned the cable moves. Does anyone have a diagram where that cable goes. I opened the glove box and tried to follow it. There is normal tension of the cable and took it if the knob seems to function properly.
