    A few things here and there. Still dreaming up stuff
    Let me get to work Monday. We have a vendor who can rebuild this stuff. We have shipped off early ecu's to them. They can rebuild hvac control heads. As you know it is a normal issue. My 99 dose it to but when it's cold out. Why I do not know.

    The best advise I can give you for right now is buy a extra one. You can get a used one for pretty cheap 50.00 or so that way you have something that works until the rebuilt one comes back.

    That's not a bad price really if they stand behind the warranty.

    Long story short. I’ve been there already (Module Repair Pro. Van Nuys) .

    Spent only couple hours. The repair was done very quickly. Everything seems to be in good working condition. Good Job! Hope this information will be useful for someone

    The temperature will rise up this week in LA. And the Climate Control has been working properly since the day of repair.
