Question about 2005 Toyota Highlander
How difficult is it to get behind dash to wires and resolder ? Can I unscrew a few bolts, to expose wires, solder ,then all goes back together simply, or should I reserve a day to disassemble,fix and put back together. ? thanks Marie
I assume that you are having issues with the heat controller; which is a very common problem. And, it costs over 900 dollars to replace it, when all is wrong with it are 2 broken wires.
Unfortunately, you have to completely remove the heater controller from the dash, and completely disassemble it to gain access to the 2 wires that need soldered, it is impossible to gain access to the wires with the unit in the dash. When you get it apart, look for 2 broken wires at the sub-PC board (from the knob) going to the main PC board. Also, to avoid having these wires break again, make sure that the nut behind the knob is real tight; if it is loose, it allows the board to rotate, and snap the wires.
I would recommend that you reserve a day for this project.
Thanks for choosing FixYa for your solution.
