    it's a 92 4x4 p/u , 87-9? should have same heater-A/C control panel.
    went dead, no lights, = no fan = 113* out & no A/C ! Moms truck :eek1:
    Been GOOGLE searching for 2 days, loklks like it might be as simple as that panel, lot of them on EBAY $30-$120 $170 at dealer, would rather like to know it's the problem before paying $30 starting bid plus shipping. Please help!

    & go enter my GIVEAWAY here :bow:

    Check the fuses, and get a wiring diagram and make sure you have power and ground at the panel, but I bet its the panel, they are a common failure.

    as always check all the little stuff first fuses, wires, cables, etc.... the power windows in my dads 94 quit and it was just that the wires disconnected inside the boot where the door opens he figured that out after buying a new regulator... But it is extremly common for the panel to die on thise trucks and that also happened to my dad so it is "most likely" your problem and if i had to bet i'd say that's it but since it's not here for me to look at and i can't drive to my pop's house to look at his the best i can say is make sure nothing simple has been overlooked. :wink1:

    :D LOL, well thx anyway :p:
    I pulled the panel, pulled the housing apart, & it is a crappy design, I see why it has problems. There are 2 pc boards, connected at 90* by a very piss poor connection. I moved it around, reinstalled without housing worked, so I put it back together, still working, I will now work on finding a good deal on one through EBAY or JY.
    just so you know, in a pinch this can be bypassed.
    top of connector, pin #2 from left top, ground that pin for HIGH speed fan, & use a switch to jumper A/C pump on. I already have the switch jumped as that quit a year or 2 ago. Perhaps new panel will fix that problem too?

    crap, now that you mentioned that my '95 had the same problem. GM made a design change after '95 I think. Had to replace the panel to fix mine.
