AC/Heater - No Power at Controls

So I have had this issue a couple of times, very random times.

Start the truck and the AC/Heater controls don't come on, no lights, push the buttons and nothing works. I stop the truck and restart it and it comes one and works with no issues.

It has happened 2-3 times in the last year, I have a buddy that it happened to him last week so I thought I would post and see if anyone has a solution. Thanks

Well, I have no idea then. It has happened to me probably 5 times total in 5 yrs. Everytime it happens I start with the remote start and it comes back on. ? Not a big deal but always wondered. Hasn't happened in probably a year?

LOL, well thanks for trying.

It's really weird how it happens, I drove about 30 miles without the AC thinking it would pop on any time but never did.

I have found that restarting the truck fixes, it doesn't happen often enough to say it's an electrical problem. Maybe once every 4 or 5 months.

That's happened to mine a few times. Not sure what it is, but if I kill it and start it again it usually comes on fine.

I'm having the same exact issue in my 2006. It happens about once every 6 months. Restarting the truck has always fixed it, except for yesterday. I had to turn the truck off and let it sit for a minute before it came back on. No idea what is causing it, but hopefully it never completely dies.

My 05 x did the same thing we stopped at the store and when we came back out it wouldn't come back on tried turning it off and back on, I ended up pulling the fuse and putting it back in, its been working fine

When it goes blank, cycle the headlight switch a couple times between "0ff" and "Auto".

Doing this should bring it back to life!

Has anyone found any definite solution to this issue?

Any of the above work?


I do have a Viper 5901 with remote start.
Happened to me again last week. Took about an hour to come back on.


'05 F250 KR CC SWB
Mini Maxx
4" SS turbo back
AFE Stage II
EGR bypassed
Ravelco
Viper 5901
Train horns - of course !
Tool box, interior lights, & metal bed cover combo
'10 Tailgate with step
'08 Tail lights
'11 Rear bumper

Classic quote by Snake "Both of you should sell your trucks and buy imports with lots of stickers, big fart can mufflers, and a rear wing as tall as you can find. You'll fit in well with that crowd."
