Climate Controls Gone

Got in the Ex yesterday, cranked it up (starts and runs great) and reached down to adjust the temp and turn on the AC and ......... blank. Pushed every button on it and no dice.

No circulating fan, no AC up front. Nothing else in the vehicle seems to be affected

I looked at the fuse box and there is nothing reading AC or climate control or something like that.............what do you all think? Any ideas?

Start the truck back up and see if it works after a restart. If it doesn't, turn the lights on and then back off again. This happens with my 05 F350 all the time.

Hmm same thing happened with my 05 a few months ago. But next time I started the truck it was working fine so I never looked into it. Interesting that it seems to be a fairly common issue.

Killing and restarting the truck never took care of mine. However, turning the headlights on then back off fixed it first time, every time (3 times over the last couple of years)

This is a weird issue...

I wonder if this will work for my truck.. The "1" position for my fan speed doesn't work. I know usually this means the resistor deal for that position is shot, but with some of these problems it gets me wondering...

Interesting that no one has a fix for this yet. My 05 does this 3-4 times a year and shutting it off for an extended time always remedies the problem. Had not recognized that the lights were a key to this and am greatful for this info. A quick turn off and back on never worked, and I guess this is because the running lights stay on for a short time.

Same deal with my 05 ! I will have to try the trick with the lights. I wonder if it makes a diffrence if you use the auto head lights or not? I turned the truck off and on again and it has been fine since.
