2006 Equinox AC/Heater Control Panel light

I have a 20006 Equniox LT. The AC/Heater Control Panel has 3 knobs on it. The left knob, which controls the temperature (hot/cold) does not illuminate any more. The other knobs do. There is also a button on the left knob to turn on the Air Conditioning. That light does illuminate orange, so there is no problem there. I know the AC/Heater Control Panel is one big piece. Do I have to replace the entire piece or could it be fuse? I am not quite sure. Any help would be appreciated! Also, the dealership told me I would have to replace the entire piece, but for some reason I do not believe them.

HI THEGROVE45, did you ever get this problem fixed. I have the same problem, and took it into the dealership, they told me they would have to replace the whole unit, and told me the light inside there was not a light bulb but a wand lit up with LED.

How do I fix the air condition control buttons?


Hello,

Well, I can't tell by your explanation if the knob stem is broken & just spinning around or if it feels normal and nothing happens.

So, I guess I would first have you check all the fuses labeled "AC" or "Heater". Might be just a blown fuse, but remember, fuses always blow for a reason. There are many things that can be causing your problem like the heater/ac fan speed relay or a broken wire, etc.


I don't how auto repair savvy you are but, Google "Mazda 3 a/c panel". You will see many things on that first page like inexpensive replacement knobs, etc. There are even several YouTube videos on how to gain access to your ac/heater control panel. There is a wealth of information there. If you are not a do-it-yourselfer, you can at least look through there to educate yourself before you take your car to someone. Being informed ahead of time is very valuable.

Bestalucktoyou,

How do I replace the light in the dash for the heating knob ( vent, defroster, etc)


The tiny incandescent light bulb is behind the knob soldered to the circuit board, you must remove the climate control head unit and take it apart to access the knobs back light bulb on the circuit board. You can buy the replacement bulb at Radio Shack, the part number is 7219 Micro Lamp.

I own a 2006 Pontiac Montana SV6, there is very little heat coming from the heater, a/c working fine, fan blowing full capacity. Could it be the thermostat.


probably the blend door not opening fully. Do you hear a clicking under the dash by passenger's feet? If not, try calibrating the system:
  1. Place the ignition switch to the OFF position.
  2. With the Mode knob in the PANEL position, press and hold the AC button for 5 seconds.
  3. Rotate the Mode knob fully counterclockwise.
  4. Rotate the Mode knob fully clockwise.
  5. Rotate the Mode knob fully counterclockwise.
  6. Release the AC button.
  7. Wait 40 seconds for the HVAC control module to self-calibrate.
  8. Start the vehicle.
If this doesn't work, your actuator may have failed. Look under the dash to see if any of the actuators on the heater box are trying to turn when you change the temperature setting. Unfortunately, I cannot find aftermarket parts for your heater, so if the door isn't working you may need to go to the pontiac dealer. Let me know if you have questions.

Heat blows out at floor only and ac does not come on even though light Indicates it's on. Has rear defrost and light works..Also has recirculating air button . I'm guessing the whole heating control in...


I would first remove the fuse for the heater control head for one minute and then put in and retry.
The control head could have locked up on you with a volt spike. The rear defrost switch does not go through the same circuit in the heat as the hvac controls. Could be a broken know also.
Could also be mechanical linkage on side of heater box above accelerator pedal may have broken or popped apart. or if electrical motor control may be actuator.

Heater Fan does not work


Sounds like the fan control knob has shorted out. You can check the fan "blower" relay and fuse in the engine compartment but you need to make sure the control knob is good or you will keep blowing fuses and relays. If your blower fuse and relay are good, then just have the control knob checked and replaced if needed.

Heater/AC control no longer allows change in temperature


You have one of two possible problems.

1) The temperature shaft retention nut is loose behind the knob

2.) The wires to the potentiometer part of the temperature may be broken.

Either one is common to this vehicle. The replacement of the AC controller is about 900 dollars. If the wires are broken, they can easily be reattached to the circuit board via soldering. What you would have to do is remove the control box from the dash, and disassemble it. Once the unit is apart, there are 3 wires from the temp knob to the circuit board that need to be re-soldered. The unit CAN be repaired, as opposed to the expense of replacing it.

Chev aveo, no heat when sitting still


First....check your radiator...make sure its full. No water = no heat. Have you noticed that the knob controlling your heater has become much easier to move? If so, your cable may have come loose. Disconnect your Neg. battery cable. Remove radio, ac/heater control panel. This usually involves removing a few screws. Find your heater control valve located behind above items. You will see what looks like a plastic box behind the dash. On that box, you will find a cable mounted there that moves a lever back and forth. Make sure it moves the lever when you move your control knob. This is your heater control valve. While in there, look for any loose vacuum lines, connections, etc.

A little common sense goes a long way.
If anyone has been working on car in the same area i.e. radio..etc. this could cause one to investigate possible problems as a result.
