      It seemed too easy..

      The fan is not working on any setting. Also the control knobs are not illuminatd.

      I am fairly confident that I connected everything properly. I never even disconnected the blower switch.


      I replaced fuse #6 just to be sure. Is there something I'm missing here? I really don't want to remove the dash again.



      Any help would be appreciated.

      It shouldn't take you more than 5 minutes to remove the HVAC control panel and check connections and the bulb.

      I before posting this I checked the back of HVAC controls, and the fan switch is plugged in (I never removed it is n the first place).

      There is one 6 or 7 pin connector behind the fan speed switch and a 2 pin connector behind the temperature knob which I assume controls the illumination. How can it be that this all worked last week and now it does not? Just trying to rule out some things to make absolutly sure it is necessary to remove the dash and look for stray wires.

      I was missing this ground wire, thank you Bently! Anyone out there listening, it plugs into the back of the rebar on the passenger side, near Lower A pillar. It is invisible once the rebar is installed so it's a bit tricky.
