I replaced the HVAC plate a few weeks ago because I had been driving around for years without a back light. The install went smooth and I noticed yesterday that the AC and recirc buttons turn off (blue light goes off) when using fan speeds greater than 1. I don't remember if everything worked properly immediately after installation. I hear the typical AC tell tales that the compressor turns off. When I turn the fan speed back to 1 the lights turn back on and the AC compressor turns back on. Could have I installed a connector incorrectly when swapping the HVAC plate? Or is this a indicator that the switch pack is about to go bad? I can't say I've seen these symptoms mentioned in the switch pack module threads I've read over the years.

take it out and check the connections

It may be internal to the switch, but probably just a loose terminal

Yeah there's a lot of switches behind that panel that are all interchangeable. To make it even worse, there's like 7 shades of green wires. I always take a picture of the arrangement before I undo any connectors after I had a similar issue as yours.

As mentioned its probably wiring, as it happened me. I thought I wired it correctly but didn't.... The pic in this thread might help.

I can confirm the above linked fixed my problem. I indeed had a few wires out of sync. Thanks again!
