How do I fix the air condition control buttons?


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.

When i turn on the contol knob for the air conditioner it will not blow, i have a 2006 hummer h3.

It sounds like your fan is not getting power or the motor is shot.

You can check the fuse panel to see if there is a blown fuse. Your manual should be able to tell you where the fuse panel is and which fuse controls the AC fan.

If that doesn't work either the fan motor is fried and needs to be replaced or there is a wire between the control panel and the fan that is severed/shorted. If you can find the blower fan and you have a multimeter you can test the motor to see if its good. Let me know if you need any more help.

For a month now my air control knob will only work on the highest setting. Just an hour ago my car quit blowing air all together and my air control know is VERY HARD to turn. I try turning the heat on to...

unplug the heater motor and put a hot wire to it to check the motor if it blows if the wire gets real hot you need to change the heater blower motor. You will probably need to change the heater fan motor resistor. follow the heater fan wire and it will go to the resistor

The fan on my 2005 vw beetle has quit- could it be the fuse panel located on the car battery>

I am assuming you are referring to the cooling fan on the motor. If not and talking about inside fan jump to paragraph titled INSIDE FAN below. There are three fuse panels on top of the battery and one on the drivers side of car inside door on dash panel. Be sure and check the inside fuses first. There should be a fuse map card on the door to the fuse panel that tells you which location the FAN fuse is in. After that point look at the battery panel and the connections should have what appear to be flat silver pieces of metal flat on top of the battery, with wires connected on both sides. If you have a multimeter set it to continuity and test both sides to make sure power is flowing. Also check for corosion, etc. There are also blade fuses on top of battery that can be checked by removing and looking to see if they are blown. This would show as a burn mark and the metal would be seperated.

Not sure what makes you think its the fuse on the battery that could cause this issue unless somehow you see a defect or damage to this area. It is usually the last to blow unless exposed to water or left open, shorted, etc.

Second thing to be sure is that the car has reached temperature to cause cooling fan to kick in.

INSIDE FAN: If the inside AC/Heater fan has stopped working this is more than likely the fan control knob located in center of the three knobs. The left is temperature control knob for Hot Cold, Center is Fan speed, and Right is vent choice. Unfortunately the unit is a single piece and the fan control switch is not replaceable by itself. You have to buy the whole module. The left and right are cable actuated but the fan control is electric and can short out and cause fan failure total or not run at high speed, not turn off, etc. Suggestion is to search EBAY for your model and lookf for AC control, Fan Control, etc. I would also suggest a Bentley manual for your beetle as it is the BIBLE used by VW mechanics at the dealer to diagnose and work issues. If you fancy DIY on some minor repairs this is the book for you and has 1600 pages of very detailed troubleshooting and procedures, with pictures and is easy to follow. You can find them on ebay as well for about 80 dollars. Be sure and get the correct one for your model year

Good luck

For AIR and HEAT to stop working Im assuming you mean the fan stopped blowing air. The beetle has three turn knobs in the dash. Left is for temperature control, center is fan control, and right is vent selection. The center button on this years model is famous for shorting out causing the fan to not blow. the other two controls are cable actuated. Unfotunately once you remove the cover the control knobs are all part of one single unit. and the whole unit must be replaced. Its a job that is doable by the home mechanic with the BENTLEY manual for this car. Other manuals are not able to show all steps. You can get the BENTLEY manual on ebay for about 80 dollars US. Its a wise investment. Then you can search ebay or local parts yards for the part. I paid 45 for mine, but dealer wanted over 400 dollars US for just the part. Took me 2 hours to install with manual.

This morning i got into the car turned the heat on worked great got out of the car came back in and the heat doesn't blow out nothing HELP it's cold

If nothing is blowing, you may have blown the fuse for your fan. You can check to see if the air is indeed heating by driving down the road with the heat turned on and the air control in the fresh air position, (not recirculate), if the fan is not blowing and the air control is on recirculate, no air will come thru the system, so this test will not work. So be sure it is set to fresh if you try this.

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.
