Climate control switch replacement
Blower switch has not been working on 3 of 4 settings. Only works on lowest one. Changed out the blower motor resistor. Lowest setting still works, but now when switch goes between 2nd and 3rd setting it comes on just fine. Is this a switch issue or a relay issue? Obviously the blower works fine. How hard is it to change the switch? Or is it something else?
And, if yo0u stealership tells you you can't buy just one switch, try a different stealership.
I had one tell me I had to buy the whole unit (all 3 switches), but another Jeep dealer sold me the two switches I needed, and saved me about $80.
The skinny pedal on the right is my friend. the gas gauge is not.
You can feel air movement on the lowest setting. When the knob is turned to the other 3....nothing. But if the knob is turned slowly and reaches hlafway between 2nd and 3rd setting the fan turns on full blast.
You need a new blower motor, and a new swithch. I would also do the relay mod to the blower motor switch after doing the install of the new parts. Search on melted fan speed switch, and you will find a how to on the subject.
I DO IT WITH MY TOP OFF!
I've been battling AC issues (much like yours) all summer. I would pull off your HVAC control panel and check for melted wires/plugs. It's very common yet Jeep won't acknowledge the issue. At the local pull a part, it had 12 jeeps and 5 of those jeeps had melted HVAC wires/plugs/control panels. If you do need a HVAC control panel, PM me and I'll get you the info to the place. As of 6 weeks ago they were on back order when I needed one. I'm a newbie and working on this HVAC stuff is very doable.
That being said--this weekend I'm overhauling my HVAC system, adding relays, and the like. PM me if you've any questions.
I have a haynes manual, tools, and gloves so I don't ruin my nails. Oh yea--let the fun begin!
