Hello, my name is***** will be helping you out! I have over thirteen year of experience in the automotive industry for numerous different makes & models. I enjoy doing what I do, it is my life.

The fuse power source should be one that indicates it as HVAC

If the fuse also does not have power, it is possible the ignition switch is not working as it should. The orange wire key on should have power. If it does not apply power to it and see if everything works again. Do you know which one is the HVAC fuse?

there is three HVAC fuses under the back seat in which I've changed.There's a relay switch under the hood I had switched. Those around also no power. And. I replaced the temperature control with three different units.

did you check the power at the ignition switch? If no power at switch then the ignition switch is bad

I live in a different state so I'm not around the car at this time so. How would I go about checking the ignition switch?
Buick Mechanic: Michael Solis,
 replied 3 months ago
You have to gain access to the wires and see if the orange wire lights up when putting switch to on position if it does not light up then switch is bad

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
When I turn on the ignition. which light am looking for? Then your saying the ignition switch is bad.
Buick Mechanic: Michael Solis,

I mean if it has power. Access the ignition switch connector and find the orange wire. It needs to have power when putting key to on position, if it does not then ignition switch is bad
