Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My console fan switch works on 1 with the air conditioner, but when I turn the fan switch to 2,3,4 it turns the air conditioner off.  I replaced the console fan switch, but that did not solve the problem

Sounds like a possible problem with the resistor in the switch. Have this replaced or checked.

Have you tried reactivating the air conditioner at the higher speeds. It could just be a little touchy with you for unknown reasons and you have to work around it until you can solve the problem. Another idea would to connect an OBD2 diagnostic unit into it, the port for that is located below the access door to your interior fuse box, connecting it should bring up a code that identifies a specific error; you'll have to buy a repair manual to see all the different errors that could show up.
