Tech Day: Climate display repair

It's FINALLY fixed!!

As opposed to taking my C5 to a stealership to repair the so-dim-I-couldn't-see-the-readings climate display, one of the guys in our club hosted a tech day today. He had the same problem with his C5 and after finding a thread on another forum, he decided to give it a shot.

Off we go.........

We (yes, WE) disassembled the console, then removed the climate control circuit board. Next came the resoldering of a few connection...then reassemble the dash & console.....VOILA!!!!!!!!!! It works!!!!

No, I didn't get pictures of the process. I forgot to take a camera.

It only took a couple of hours, and saved me several hundred bucks....not to mention the fun we had hanging out with some great Vette people. Next weekend is a club roadtrip and a track weekend at Road Atlanta.

HELLO, SPRING!


GOOD-BYE, WINTER!

Toms94 is someone that you can enjoy a glass of wine with.
Sure glad you got it Speedie. Mine does not have that problem yet, but I think it's just a matter of time.

Thanks. It wasn't as complicated as I thought it would be.

Mine started with a slow (very slow) fade, and then it went out completely very quickly. It's realllly nice to have it back. Yeah, I know, it's not that big of a deal, but when you're spoiled....you're spoiled.
