A/C Problem

Went out this morning and started up my 2006 6.0 and the AC would not turn on or the display module (I have the climate control one, not manual) even light up. Did a little looking on line and came back out and started it up and it lit up and turned on fine. I'm not too savvy with electrical or A/C but was wondering if anybody had any ideas on what might be up?

I appreciate any help

I've seen this problem a few times. Most of the time it will come back on if you unplug the connectors briefly from the back of the control head. Easiest way to get to it is by removing the radio first.
Eventually you'll probably need a new control head.

Mine has done it to me twice once last summer and once a few days ago. The first time I was thinking it just got too hot inside. I check all the fuses the plug everything i could think of. I took off down the road with the windows down and about 5 miles later it come on all on its own. The last time it was workin drove to an ice cream shop got the ice cream got back in it didnt work a few miles later same thing come back on. Im kinda thinking its an overheating issue but not convinced.

Mine's done the same. I usually just turn the truck off and start it again. Problem solved, at least temporarily.
