Climate Control No Power/Dead

I started my 2003 X this afternoon and climate control screen was blank and nothing works. Fuse is okay. Is there anything else I can check? Thanks

there have been a few issues with the actual temp controller taking a dump, hard to say really without digging in

this is a fairly common problem on Excursions(maybe trucks too) that have the auto headlight feature and EATC..it doesn't happen often and the "cycle headlight switch" trick clears it every time..

i know back in the day someone had figured exactly why the relay gets hung up, but i've forgotten now..regardless, nothing is really broken and it's just a little quirk to have to deal with..

I've had the same issue intermittently. I've never heard the "cycle headlight switch" trick. I'll have to try it.
Thanks!
