Question about Cars & Trucks
These are 2 separate problems. First, the shift lever problem is a problem of LUBRICATION and Condensation. Get the vehicle into a warm area and open the shift lever boot to expose the internal parts. Then using WD40 or CRC spray, spray all the moving parts while working the lever back and forth. Moisture between the metal parts condenses and freezes! THe screen freezing may be caused by similar things, like moisture. For it you need to get to the contacts that supply the screen and blow them out with DRY compressed air!

Do you notice that the engine coolant temperature gauge stays on the lower part of the scale as well? If so, it's likely that your thermostat is stuck open - this prevents the coolant from staying in the block long enough to absorb heat that is used to heat the climate-controlled air. I'm not positive on the 3.0 in your car, but the 2.8 V6 in my Audi A4 requires tremendous disassembly in order to change the thermostat. I believe the 3.0 is the same - the labor involved is only slightly less than that required to do a timing belt change (which, if you change the thermostat, since you're already all the way in there, you may as well do the t-belt service as well so you don't have to pay for all that labor again any sooner than necessary).

I would also have the system power flushed . The termostat on this cars can be a very expensive item to replace..probably 6 hrs of labor at $80.00 hr. The irony of all , the part cost is less than 30.00 dollars.Have it flushed for $100.00 to 150.00 dollars
