AC controls are dead WTF????

This is the 2nd time in 6 months this has happned, went to lunch and it worked, stopped to buy some Rangers tickets get back in truck and NADA, killed the motor and restarted several times and its still not back on.

Its an 05 Lariat CC F250, is their a recall for this? I have an extended warranty but would rather use that for the turbo as its starting to stick a little now and then. Truck has 62K on her.

Hey, same thing happened to me this past Sunday. I live in SD and we have been in the middle of a heat wave for a while, 100+. The day before it was just as hot but I have a habit of leaving the windows cracked about a inch or two, no problem. On sunday the windows were not open by the time it got the heat of the afternoon. I had to go help someone paint and noticed my climate control system wasn't powering on at all, no control of anything. I left the windows open while I was painting, the next time I got into the truck everything was working again. I am waiting to here from the dealer on this.

Its a vacuum line. My truck did this twice and there is a recall. The problem is that the vacuum line is routed around a sharp part of the dash and it rubs a hole in it. Here's a link 6.0 PowerStroke bulletins and put this in find. 2005/06 A/C or Ventilation Control Problems

Good to hear, the dealership has it now.

I had this happen last week. I don't think it's vacuum related since the entire unit was dead. It's not an issue of vents not switching like they should. The screen on the climate control is blank, no lights or anything. I restarted the truck with my fingers crossed and still nothing. With the truck running, I pulled the fuse for the climate control, re-inserted it and voila! it started working again. It hasn't happened since.

Of course mine is an OBS so probably not the same. But my ac quit blowing out like normal. It would blow out of the defrost vents.
Found out that it was the actual switch that selects normal/max/vent ect.
It is a combination electrical/vacuum switch. I got frustrated and just by passed it.
I ordered a new one, but Ford only has sent me the fan speed control. Twice.

Man, you have to love the extended warranty, they are replacing the AC head unit, cleaning or maybe replacing the turbo and replacing my back pressure sensor. $200.00 is all its going to cost if they replace the turbo.

My truck has done this on multiple occassions. Climate control will be working fine when I shut the truck off, and then sometimes when I start it again it's not working. Display doesn't light up and none of the controls work. I've always shut if off, waited about 15 seconds and started it again and it's back on.

Same problem here and it has also happened to my radio. After shutting it off and on a few times it all seems to come back on.
