Re: HVAC intermittent issues - works then doesn't work

I was having a similar problem with my '05, but I have manual A/C.

After changing the resistor pack several times, my fan would also cut in and out when I went over a good bump.

Blowing Resistor packs

I keep blowing resistor packs for my blower fan. The last one only lasted 2 weeks. Now all I have is high speed.

I've heard that this is an indication of the blower motor failing?

Re: Shock absorber (struts) question?

I agree. After I changed my struts along with the upper bearing plate and mount, all of my suspension clunks are gone. Huge difference!
