I have an A/C problem but it is different from the rest. Here are the facts. I bought the car in 9/08 with 3200 miles on it. Within in weeks the lights went out. The dealer fixed it. (bad couple of wires in the box behind the dash) Within 2 weeks the right from low beam went out. Last week I went back to the dealer and they replace another bad wire and replced the box (the car has 5k now). Now here is the problem. The A/C worked fine before nut not now. The a/c button lights up but the a/c fan don't come on. The fuses are all good but I changed them just in case. There is plenty of r-134 in the system. Any thoughts? I know the box behind the dash is just a box of relays so I thought maybe the a/c routes through there and that might be the problem? Any ideas I can try before it goes back to th dealer. The dealer is 1 1/2 hours away.

I need to clarify one thing. The blower works fine it is the A/c cooling fans in the front that don't come on at all. They use to before the switch box was replaced.

The A/C switch is controlled through the "Switch Pack Module" (the one you had replaced) and in turn is one function that controls the operation of the cooling fans. The SPM is much more than a bunch of relays, there is a lot of "solid state circuitry in there.
Cheers,
Michael

Son of a B&%ch. I had a feeling that would be the problem. Well I guess I will call them to see if they get a replacement ASAP.
