Astro Van

Switch for rear ac/heat burned and smoked when I turned it on. Premier motor coach installed it. This is the second failure in this vehicle. Last summer, it didn't blow any air. I spoke with premeir as the latest motor lasted 13000 miles. Had I put the heat on and left the car, a fire would have started. I would like to know where else I can turn to. Premier could care less. They are located at 205 complex dr, lakeland Florida 33801. They obviously have a defective product and do not back it up for safety. My car was smoking and burning until I turned the switch off. I can not use it until it is replace, at my expense, not premier. I am furious that my family and I were subjected to a dangerous product. Premeir motor coach states they have never had any failure and blame the dealer. The dealer has been fair. I would like to also issue a consumer complaint with all necessary agencies. Any suggestions. I do believe this product would have started a very dangerous situation. Please help me and other.
