2003 Honda Pilot Climate Contol panel not working

10

Asked by Jun 10, 2014 at 06:28 PM about the 2003 Honda Pilot EX AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

No lights, pressing buttons do not do anything. I thought I may have blown a fuse when I was bypassing Relay for Compressor clutch to force it to engage. But all fuses look good.  I even bought a 2nd hand replacement of the Climate control unit and it behaved the same. Any help would be great!Thanks, Jay

so does the fan even turn on? what was the original problem that caused you to mess around with the relay?

The original problem was that A/C did not blow cool air. It was probably due to low charge. The info online that I found to check the charge level all said that the compressor clutch should be engage to ensure proper charge level. I could see that the clutch was not engaging. I needed to see if it was a bad compressor, clutch, or more likely a low charge. That's why I messed with the relay to make sure the clutch and fans actually worked. And in that process is where shorted something out that resulted in the Climate Control panel to fail. Now either the 2nd hand replace panel was bad or the problem is else where. That is what I need to find out.
