The climate control system went to high blower (cold air only) and I had no heat, I pushed the off button and it went off but hasn't responded since then. I was an A.S.E. Certified hvac and electrical in the early '90's so I'm not totally clueless. Just on this car LOL.

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The issue with the heater/ac system sounds to be the control on the dash itself at fault.I have seen this fail before several times needing removed and replaced to correct this here.The power and ground signals need tested to it and the fault codes checked in all computers as this will help locate if this is the cause here for sure.I can tell you how to test this if you want that info.

As for the door lock this is usually a faulty lock actuator on one or more doors needing replaced.This will also need tested further to be sure this is the cause here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
