While fan speed control worked, temp control did not work at all. Temp typically remained on full Hot, regardless of location of control dial. There is a youtube video of how to re-attach/solder the control panel, but I had it repaired at the dealer.

Was first told it would take a day or two to get the parts, then they called and said it would be ready that day. Always wondered if they actually replaced the control panel or just re-attached the connections.

This is annoying problem since I couldn't control the temperature. When turning heater, no heat sometime. When AC was needed, hot air came out instead.
