Intermittent Climate Control Fixed!

Saturday I finally fixed my climate control that was dimming and then just going off randomly. I used the fix that is well written up in a few different places and involves just replacing a 0.47uF capacitor on the control board.

It worked perfectly I'm happy to say.

Since I was only able to buy a lot of 10 capacitors, not singles I have 9 spares if anyone else has this repair on their todo list.

PM me and we can figure out how to get one to you.

I fixed mine about a year or so ago and it worked like a charm until a couple weeks ago when it started to do it again :/

hmmm... well I actually have fourteen spares (I was too impatient for the mail so I went to an electronics shop and bought another pack). Let me know if you want one... even at a guaranteed failure every hundred thousand km or so I think I have enough to last more than my ownership of the car. ;-)
