Customer Question
Ac controls not lighting...

Ac controls not lighting up they worked the morning

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The fan control / ac on each nob

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

2008 sorento

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

I pulled and reseated the memory fuse and any fuse I could see related to the ac / heat under the hood. I replaced the 10a fuse on the memory and still nothing

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

That's about it

Hey how are you,I will try to help you with this issue

pull the ac control from dash and grab the rear connector coming to it and wiggle it , does it come on, then unplug connector and look for any burned pins on the connector since you already checked all fuses

lets start here and we go from there

Please let me know

Thank You
