I installed a new stereo in my 2007 CR-V and the heat and AC

Customer Question

I installed a new stereo in my 2007 CR-V and the heat and AC don't work now.
JA: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?
Customer: yes. No leaking
JA: Are you fixing your CR-V yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes, doing it myself. The heat and ac control module in the dash has the clips broken on it.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: not that I can think of.

I did
Expert:  david carrier replied 6 days ago.

was the heat and a/c giving you any problems prior to the radio installation?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
The AC wasn't blowing very cold but the heat was working perfectly.
Expert:  david carrier replied 6 days ago.

so right now you don't have at blower motor operation at all? Do the lights come on the panel for the heat and a/c unit

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
The lights come on the panel and it blows air. It's just blowing air the same temperature as the air outside.

Did your crv come with stock navigation or just the standard radio

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
The standard radio

Did you install it yourself or was it done by a stereo store?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
I installed it myself.
Expert:  david carrier replied 6 days ago.

It sounds like something got unplugged on the heater box that is behind the dash or possibly on the heater control panel that is directly below. also just look at all the fuses under the dash to make sure they are not blown. Sometimes during radio installs if there is an accidental short of a wire its will blow a fuse. The Honda crv does not have many problems with the heat and a/c systems on those so the highest probability is that something became unplugged accidently or shorted.
