My 2011 Kia Sorento when set to auto climate control only

Customer Question

My 2011 Kia Sorento when set to auto climate control only blows on the lowest setting if if the temp is set to LO. The blower works fine in manual mode when I set the speed and the A/C blows cold. I really want it to maintain the temperature I set automatically as it was intended. Any idea what might be causing this?

HI,
Ok, how the circuit works is that both the manual and automatic send a signal to the blower motor resistor to regulate blower motor speed. So since the blower speed responds to the manual setting of blower speed, we know that both the resistor and the blower motor are good and that the fault is in the automatic climate control panel. The only repair for this is to replace the climate control panel
