Has anyone ever seen a climate control "EATC" do this. I have had the "blank display" issue several times in the past but this time when it came back on it looks like this. Nothing seems to make any difference.

Have you tried disconnecting both plugs then plug them back it?

Unfortunately, yes. It comes back up like this. I'm thinking of buying one on ebay but man they are costly. Normally when it goes blank cutting the truck off and back on, cycling the lights or some combination brings it back. Hopefully someone has seen this combination of lights before.

Have you tried pusing "OFF" then "AUTO" then "OFF" again? - usually when I disconnect my batteries, it does exactly what you show, and that sequence of buttons is what fixes it.

LOL I can see why you would say that, but I really am serious. That usually fixes mine when I see this after disconnecting the batteries for awhile. Try it...

I tried it, no bueno. Guess I will spend the $150 for an ebay unit and hope for the best.

I've also heard of cycling your headlight switch from auto to off a couple times too - something to do with sharing the same power or ground as the switch or something like that. Might give that a shot.

I tried the headlight trick. That worked before when the display went blank. Nothing this time.

The "new" one works fine. I tried the original again after the new one worked and it is still doing the same thing. I'll try to find time to get the original one shipped out soon.

Hey I'm new here. Is this style mentioned above electronic only or have vacuum operated doors? Mine will get stuck on defrost mostly. It'll blow cold and then
get warmer, (not on auto when it does this). Evacuated system and it was full, pulled a 25 minute vacuum on system and it held 25 inhg for 25 minutes straight. Pressures seem to been fine when compressor cycling on and off. Driving 8 hours this weekend to PA any suggestions are welcome or any info I may have left out. Thanks!

This convo is for the electric control -- no vacuum lines
