Levi, If you have the same climate control, then below is a link to a repair video for your climate control. Sorry, this is the part 3 video, look a the side to find the part 2 video and watch it first.
1. The headlights are working as designed. These are Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and are on during daylight, but at a lowered intensity. At night they go to full intensity.
2. It sounds like the HVAC system may have lost calibration after the battery issue. Try turning all HVAC controls off or to their full CCW positions, then disconnect the battery for about 5 - 10 minutes. Reconnect the battery and don't touch any thing for a few minutes. If this does not make your AC work again, you may have a problem with one of the blend doors or its actuator motor. BTW, there is no vacuum operating the HVAC system, it is all electric.
its not a fuse i had the same problem on my 03 x5 it an ac resistor thats at fault it controls your fan once it goes your fan wont come on or comes on intermitently once again the faulty part is a blower motor resistor should be 100 bucs at dealer or if you shop around i got mine for 75 from local parts store (carquest)
You should make sure you have proper charge for sure.has your battery gone dead lately? I know on some of them digital climate controls will act exactly like this and have to be reset or go through a setup sequence.
i have been having that same exact problem with my 2002 grand prix for over a year now, and when my ac is on the lower setting the it doesnt work plus the headlights and lights on my dash go out. On Max everything works. i changed the blower resistor(about $35), still doesnt work. i changed all relays and fuses related to the ac, still doesnt work. i changed out the actual ac control switch in the dash, still doesnt work. i have changed everything but the blower motor and have asked every mechanic and auto parts retailer i come across and no one knows the answer. The best answer i got is that it is probably a wiring problem like a short somewhere.
I had the same problem on my 2003 CV, took it to ford and found out it was the AC controller. The controller is the part you see on your dash, that allows you to switch between heat/ac etc..
Watch for the cost though, To have a new controller installed was approx $750
"MAX" ONLY puts the climate control in the RECIRC mode. Door modes change to " RECIRCULATE" interior cabin air back to be RE-COOLED, instead of using HOT OUTSIDE air to cool. If the problem is in the panel, complete replacement is required. Hope this helps
U must remove the climate control unit from the dash and remove the top cover of the unit, u will find a tiny twist in light bulb socket with a tiny little light bulb, this provides the backlight for the AC/heater display, u can buy the bulb at any auto parts store, couple of bucks.
