How good are Chyrsler technicans?
 
had my '05 serviced before the warranty ends in june. They change, starter, shocks and climate control module because the light had completely gone out. cost me $150 deductible.

So yesterday it got hot in the 60's so I tried my a/c only to realize all I was getting was hot air. I then checked out the climate control module they replaced only to see that when u select a zone no matter which zone u select all three zones are on. The temperate selector from high A/C to heat it's actually low heat to very hot heat. Oh, and get this, when I turn the climate control off and press the a/c light it actually lights up. Nothing was wrong with my climate settings except for the light not being on but other than that everything works.

Could it be that the technican who installed this did it wrong or the part is just defective. Either way, car is going back tomorrow and I refuse to pay them anything.

Keep us posted as to what happens. I have the same problem with the temperature selecter on mine ie low heat when set to full cool for outside air and A/C is off. Why turn the A/C on when it is 65F outside?

humidity and rain.

From my limited experience with the 2 closest dealers by me they suck! Parts replacers is all they are and cannot troubleshoot to save their lives. I avoid the dealer like the plague.

replacing an ac control head for bulbs out is NOT rocket science, its a couple screws, couple of connectors, a couple tiny bolts.... there is likely another issue. I am not quite following your problem though.

So youíre answering your own question? No humidity or rain and itís still 65F outside. What Iím talking about is it seems to start heating when you move the temperature selector knob just 2 clicks off of full cool when useing outside air and no A/C.

I had the climate control module changed because at night it was not lighting up. Before I could have tapped it and one side would light up a little but for the past month the light doesn't come on at all.

I am still under the extended warranty so I had them replaced it last week and I thought it was fixed because at night when the lights come on it also lights up.

I tried using it on sunday only to find out it's not working the way it's suppose to. The left low to high settings work fine. The middle temperature setting has from high a/c to high heat but when I click the a/c button and put it to high a/c all I get is low heat. The far right selector which selects the zone "windshield,cabin,floor" does not work properly because whenever I select a zone they all come on no matter which zone I pick. When I turn off the climate control for no reason I press the a/c button and it still lights up.

Everything was working before they replaced the module so I think they screwed it up as usual. With that dealership I should have known better because it usually takes me 2-3 visits to fix a problem.

As far as the A/C blwing hot, they probably didnt recharge it correctly. And I have the same problem with my A/C control not lighting up, but it works properly. The must have installed a diffective unit. Take it back, and have the replace it, as well as check the A/C coolent

Repair technicians are only as good as the individuals themselves, so you cant judge them all by how one dealership tech performs. The service techs are quite good at my local Jeep dealer, but I use them only since I have the extended warrantee, oitherwise I would go elsewhere, since the hourly rates are so costly.

If your evacuating the refrigerant to replace the control head...

sounds like maybe an hvac update?

I was wondering about this? Is it possible? In my case the heat comes on to quickly, 2 clicks off of full cool and I'm starting to feel heat. I know it's not correct because the girlfriends Toy Highlander is fine using the outside air vents to cool the inside of the vehicle while it's 70F outside. I on the other hand either have to roll all the windows down or have to turn the A/C on.

So good they rubbed my 4xguard rail guard against their wall. Fortunately I can buff the paint off. Unfortunately for them, they get to either change all 16 of my spark plugs, or change my tranny fluid. Haha

On another note, my techs seem to know their sh!t!! Key word is "seem" haha
