Tip & How-To about 2005 Toyota Highlander
Does your Toyota Highlander have no heat?
Here are two possibilities
The retainer nut for the temperature control is loose, which leads to a wire that is broken from the temperature control sub-circuit board, to the main circuit board.
If the retainer nut is loose, the unit can be repaired. This will entail removal of the heater control from the dash, disassembling it, identifying the broken wire, and resoldering the broken wire back in place.
If you are not skilled in disassembling the dash and the heater control, and not skilled in soldering, this job is best left to a professional. The alternative ti repairing the broken wire is costly. The replacement control is roughly 900 dollars, plus installation. A qualified technician can repair your control in less than 2 hours.
