My girlfriend left her sunroof open and it stormed. Everything seems to work except now the AC doesn't and the indicator lights on the recirculation and AC knobs won't come on. However, the indicator light for the rear defrost works as does the heat. All the fuses are good. I removed the climate control panel and it was dry. I unplugged the connector and that looked fine and dry. Is it possible that water got into the climate control board and shorted out causing the air not to work along with the indicator lights? I read on here about disconnecting the battery and that might reset it but she is out of town so I haven't been able to try that. Otherwise, I can buy a new climate control panel and see if that is it. Any other ideas? Thanks!

I installed a tablet as a head unit in my pat like a year ago, so I got really familiar with alot of what's going on back there. I took my climate control apart to change color of the light and when I put it back together I had the same problem til I found an unplugged second harness.

There's two that connect to your climate control that you're probably going to want to check if you haven't already, ones big and controls the blower and a second small one that i want to say controls the compressor (or vise versa).

If I was troubleshooting id check connections in both harness ends for corrosion and proper connections, possible damaged or chewed wires. From what I hear animals just like pats for some reason. If you haven't checked the A.C clutch relay while you were looking at the fuses of probably touch on that too. Try maybe checking out the clutch on the compressor when the A.C. is flipped on, it should be the easiest pully to see on the egine with engine cover off.

Got the same problem here. Did any of you were able to fix the issue?
I dont have sunroof but it still leaked some where from the roof one day out of no where and screwed up all the interior. Looks like roof leak is a very common problem with this car.

Hello,

Any advice for dealing with this issue? Same thing happened for me, and I swapped out the HVAC control panel but I still have no lights/action from the A/C or recirculation buttons.
