OK, let's work through this together.

The climate control panel shows a/c. That's good for the summer.
The panel displays 88 deg. F. That's a little hot.
It appears that the panel is showing F1. When does the panel show this?
When the panel shows 88 Deg. F you cannot turn the system off and make any adjustments.
---

Now, are you able to get any cold air out of the air conditioning system?
If you can, then what temperature can you set it to.

I think that the electronic climate control panel is fried on the motherboard and needs to be replaced with a new one or a used one that is known to be good from a salvage yard.

Hope this helps.

Contact me if you need any other clarification.

    when the system is locked, you can not make any adjustments to the temperature or the speed of the fan. I took the car to a repair shop and the air conditioner started working fine but upon returning home, it malfunctioned again and later in the evening the a/c started to work fine. Could it be fuse or a loose connection?

    Maybe the panel electronics is going bad if it is behaing this way. Check into getting another one from a junk yard to replace it to see if the locked problem goes away. As far as I know, only radios and gps systems should get locked in this way.



    In a Cadillac, for instance, the climate control display should never lock up like this.



    Wish you luck on this.

My buttons for my ac and auto are not working or lighting up.. i have the up down buttons for higher and lower flow and i have to push them really hard. is there a way to reset this system to get it


Your request shows 2 days old. It would probably help to show which model car you have and if the upgrade climate control or the base system is on your car for other Experts to comment.

The stiffness of the buttons is not adjustable. Some of the controls are vacuum powered and have mechanical parts which are suppose to move to route the vacuum to a proper place.

The fancier Climate Control units have self-diagnosis which some knowledgeable Technician can test to ask the car what is wrong.

The only thing you can try is to disconnect the negative battery terminal for at least 10 minutes and then reconnect and see if the A/C rebooted. This though will erase stored info for the Technician mentioned earlier.

The light issue will not cause the controls to push hard. But the fancier Climate control uses lighted displays to show trouble codes. If the screen remains black usually the control panel needs replacement.

There is nothing wrong with using a used part. Especially if the windows are still intact on the salvage car. You might want to educate yourself by finding Youtube videos for this repair.

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix with a digital climate control system. The heat quit working, it doesn't blow out any heat. Now that it is warm outside the air stopped blowing out any air. The digital temperature on the climate control is not correct. When it states that it is below 30 degrees on the ext and it is warm outside the air wont be cold. Once it starts going above 30 degrees the air gets colder. Today the blower stop working all together. Was told it maybe the climate control unit was bad. You can hear the door opening/shutting when you switch the temp from cold to hot. But there was no heat blowing out whatsoever in the winter time. Could you please give me your opinion on whether or not it is the climate control unit or something else?

The climate control screen does not work, when i turn on my heat on, gas level goes down to empty


I assume you mean the car burns more gas when you turn on the heat. The climate control panel also controls the air conditioning system. When the air conditioner is turned on it activates the belt driven compressor thru electrical relays and clutch system. The clutch is located on the compressor pulley, its the secondary outer most ring. The cars engine has to work harder because of the extra load on the engine when this clutch engages. This causes the car to have a higher demand for fuel. The malfunctioning control panel could be activating the airconditioning system unknowingly to yourself. Replace the control panel first, if that doesn't solve the problem check the compressor clutch to see if its engaging with the aircondition system turned to off. If thats the case, check for a stuck system relay.

1997 Bonneville SSE, when the heater is turned on, only cold air


you may have a failed blend air door motor/actuator. this part will regulate the amount of air from the heater core depending on the temp setting on your electronic climate control unit. if it has failed, it will be stuck at the temp that it was last set at when it quit working. it is also possible the heater core may be plugged up, but using the gm recommended dexcool coolant and flushing it out every 5 years, it should not be plugged up. you can pull the 2 heater hoses off the heater core on the passenger side of the engine compartment firewall and see if the heater core is the problem. caution-do not use a high pressure air hose to blow through the heater core as this could damage it and cause a leak!

No warm heat comes out, just cold air


it is possible the thermostat is the problem, but if it is stuck closed the engine coolant temp gauge (if you have one) would show an overheat reading. most temps gauges will read 195 to 205 degrees. the other possibility is if you have an automatic climate control system, the blend door motor may have failed and will not adjust correctly to the temperature you have set for the interior
