Make sure the climate control module which is the actual control head is properly connected. Make sure bothb connectors are fully seated and latched.Next check to make sure the inertia switch has not tripped. It is located behind the passenger side lower kick panel there should be a hole in the panel where you can put your finger through to depress the top of it to reset it.Let me know.
