Over the past 6 months or so the display for the HVAC controls has
gotten progressively dimmer. Now it is totally dark so I can't tell
what the outside temp is or see what I have the HVAC set at. I've
checked all of the fuses and they are all good. Does anyone have any
ideas on what else to check? I'm trying to avoid a dealer repair
where they spend hours trying to figure it out. Thanks!
It is a bad solder joint on one or more of the eight resistors on the
main board. Fairly simple process, find a link with pictures and follow
along. It took me a little over an hour to R&R the system. Once you
hit the problem resistor, it will basically jump off the board, keep an
eye on it when you hit it with the soldering iron. This would be a good
start for info -
