It looks like the entertainment center and climate control bezel should be removable, w/out pulling the dash. You can get a diagram from your dealer's parts dept.

SOURCE: how do i remove climate control from dash? does

Why do you want to remove the climate control?? It is basically locked into about 50 things up front there, the dash does not come out. It does, but I wouldn't do it if somebody paid me. there are diagrams for the dash. The steering wheel comes off first, then 500 hidden fasteners that never go back in right, plugs, switches, lights, more fasteners, finally get off the climate control, then wonder why didn't I just leave the thing on there. I just took out a dash on a junk truck for the wiring harness, never again, It would have taken me 10 times longer if I knew I had to be careful and then try to put that thing back?? No way!! And I am good with stuff like that. It is a job. Hope this helps.

2007 Yukon XL, 1500 SLT, 4WD, headlights randomly go bright to dim and back very quickly


Yes this can be a normal condition caused by load being applied to the headlights and that lowers the voltage, the lites dim, then the load is removed and the lights brighten. Typical loads that cause this are AC climate control related. Have the Alternator load tested to confirm there is no problem in the charging system. Also have the battery tested, a battery that is starting to fail can cause this problem as well, a failing battery takes a huge amount of charging system power to keep it up, so that makes the lighting see higher spikes in voltage

2005 bUICK park avenue ultra, the climate control indicator goes dim, I hit the dash and the light comes on stronger


There are 3 things to think what can be the problem.
1. there is a day/night sensor on the dash.{not working properly}
2. there is a variable dimmer for the cluster illumination. loose connector or terminals.
3. The display itself.{can be defect} loose connection at the display or terminals.
lot of work.

Hope it helps.

Climate control panel lighting is dim and sometimes does not turn on unless i knock on the instrument panel


There are tiny 12 volt DC bulbs that are soldered to the circuit board inside the climate control head, you must remove the module, take it apart and replace those bulbs. You can buy the bulbs at Radio Shack Part #7219

Radio lights 94 lexus ls400


It has something to do with the climate control. You have to have a technician repair it. ebay has many of those repair guys for mad cheap. I did my L of of ebay. They have ways of removing dash and climate control off of google. Just engine search it. Look for people that fix Dash and Climate control. If that does not work then it is a LD problem and probably need a new Radio.

What size fuse (and where are they located)are needed to fix the following non lit accesories on a 2003 Buick Le Sabre ltd? -Steering Wheel accesories - Climate Control, Volume - Radio controls. -Climate...


Are all of these not working ?
• Air temperature switch
• Cigar lighter lamp
• Door switches
• Driver information center (DIC) switch
• Headlamp switch
• Head-up display (HUD) switch
• Heated seat switches
• HVAC control assembly
• Instrument panel cluster (IPC)
• Memory function switch
• Radio
• Steering wheel controls
• Window switches

Interior Lamps Dimming
This group of interior lighting includes lamps which may be dimmed. This group uses a combination of class 2 controlled illumination and incandescent lamps:
• Air temperature switch
• Cigar lighter lamp
• Door switches
• Driver information center (DIC) switch
• Headlamp switch
• Head-up display (HUD) switch
• Heated seat switches
• HVAC control assembly
• Instrument panel cluster (IPC)
• Memory function switch
• Radio
• Steering wheel controls
• Window switches
For the interior lighting to be dimmed the following conditions must be met:

Here is a discription of how they work ,factory service info.
• A low light level has been detected by the dash integration module (DIM)
• Headlamp switch is placed in to the PARK or HEAD position
• Ignition switch is placed in the ON position
Then all class 2 displays and all incandescent back lighting will be illuminated to the level set by the instrument panel (I/P) dimmer switch. When the I/P dimmer switch is moved from MIN to MAX, all class 2 displays and all incandescent back lighting respond from minimum intensity to maximum brightness.
The DIM supplies battery positive voltage to the coil side of the PRK LP relay in the rear fuse block.
When the I/P dimmer switch is moved from MIN to MAX, then the instrument panel module (IPM), W/CJ2, or climate control panel (CCP), W/C67, applies a message to the class 2 communication circuit to the DIM. The DIM then applies a ground to the park lamp relay control circuit. This energizes the PRK LAMP relay and allows battery positive voltage to be applied through the DIMR fuse to the DIM. The DIM then illuminates the following incandescent lamps through the incandescent dimming output circuit:
• Cigar lighter lamp
• DIC Switch
• Headlamp switch
• HUD switch
• HVAC control assembly
• IPC
• Radio
• Steering wheel controls
The DIM also applies a message to the following class 2 controlled illumination components:
• Drivers door module (DDM)
• HVAC control assembly
• IPC
• Radio
The DDM will then send a message through the simple bus interface (SBI) to the RH front door module (RFDM). The door modules will then illuminate the following components through the incandescent dimming output circuit:
• Air temperature switch
• Heated seat switches (W/KA1)
• Memory function switch (W/A45)
• Power door lock switches
• Power window switches
The ground for these components are provided from the DDM and RFDM.
The following components are grounded at G200:
• Headlamp switch
• HVAC control assembly
• Radio
• Steering wheel controls
The following components are grounded at G201:
• Cigar lighter lamp
• DIC Switch
• HUD switch

Having the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's would probably be your best course of action .
DTC B2556 (1)
The I/P dimmer switch is a potentiometer. The instrument panel module (IPM) determines the control setting based on the voltage from the I/P dimmer switch. The IPM sends out a class 2 message to the dash integration module (DIM). The intensity of the interior backlighting shall be adjustable when ever the park lamps are on. The intensity of the vacuum florescent displays shall only be adjustable when it is night and the park lamps are active.
DTC B2627
DTC B2628
Circuit Description
The I/P dimmer switch is a potentiometer. It is powered by the HVAC control module. The HVAC control module determines the level of dimming desired based on the voltage from the I/P dimmer switch. The HVAC control module converts the I/P dimmer switch feed back voltage to a digital signal and puts it on the Class II communication bus.

Dash Integration Module (DIM)
The DIM is wired to the class 2 serial data line. The various DIM input and output circuits are described in the corresponding functional areas as indicated on the DIM electrical schematics.
The DIM functions include the following:
• Control of headlights and exterior lamps
• Horn relay control
• Interior lamps incandescent dimming
• Lamps On signal with wiper/washer
• Power moding control over Class 2 serial data line
• Steering wheel controls
• Storage of the clock settings and, sending a message out on the class 2 serial data circuit in response to requests from other modules

Your best bet ,take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop.
