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.
