Customer Question
How do I fix...

How do I fix a climate control panel problem. The defroster is going on and fogging my windows and I'm in Florida. The panel keeps opening up when I press it to stop.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is this your first time dealing with this issue?

Yes it's a rental car.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Cadillac?

It's a new sedan. Doin't know the model.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Sedan?

It's a XTS just saw it on the key.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sedan yourself? What have you tried so far?

Right now I'm out of the car and thankful I didn't get into an accident.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I just want to know how to solve it. I need to drive it in the morning.
