2006 Toyota Camry Automatic Climate Controls

Just got car back from a shop where they installed some special controls and they had to take dash apart. Now, the Automatic Climate Controls do not work. When on Auto it goes to maximum heat and stays there no matter how hot the inside of the car gets. I think it maybe a sensor for the cabin room temperature that has gotten damaged. Any thoughts? it's a 2006 Camry XLE with ACC

Look under the driver side of the lower inst panel for a small vent looking thing. Behind this is the "sniffer" for the cabin temp. This item is routinely omitted from being reinstalled properly. I'll bet that it is not attached to the lower panel

It most likely has to be reprogrammed. The tech should be able to program only the A/C control unit.

CTS in dash navigation system

There is a company called PAC that specializes in modules like you describe - keeping the steering wheel controls functional with an aftermarket radio.

Click HERE to visit their site. You have to choose a compatible manufacturer. Basically - it is turning the steering wheel controls into a "remote" hidden in the dash.

CLICK HERE for the PAC installation guide for the 2006 CTS

For best results and compatibility, look for a shop in your area that carries PAC - it is a common manufacturer in the BIZ, and have them install it.

The simple answer to your question is YES as long as you use the module compatible for the brand of radio you are installing.

04 4runner-dash light replacement

Open up the storage area under the climate controls. With it open gently pull upwards on it. It will pop out of place and should slide out with a little wiggling. When that is done, you will see the top of a bolt under the climate controls. I believe it is 10mm. take that out. When that is out you will have to pull on the bottom of the climate control panel. It is all one piece and is held in by clamps so it is kind of tight. Mine took a little work but it came out. If you not comfortable doing it then please dont. I dont want to be the reason some thing breaks. It will come out as one unit. You will need to remove the wiring harness from the back. When that is done just look on the back of the unit and you will see the back side of the bulbs. You will need a little flat head screwdriver. the bulbs simply twist and fall out the back side. this also gives you access to the bulbs for the climate controls if those ever go out.

Rear Climate control console

The rear ac controls have the snaps built in onto the unit. When they installed the overhead dvd they prolly stuffed the ac controls up in the headliner. You will have to replace entire headliner to reinstall the panel correctly. Be cheaper to repair dvd unit, and reinstall over the hole. The front controls in that car are the master controls anyway, you dont have to have the rear ones to make the rear ac work.

Dash lights

The dash is lit by one or more bulbs located on the edge of that clear plastic. You may be able to get to the lamp holder by reaching up behind the dash. If not there, then the dash will need to come off.
