AC/Heater Control Module

An AC/heater control module is a computer that controls and automates the operation of the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems (HVAC).

Symptoms of a Bad or Failing AC/Heater Control Module

  • HVAC system might not heat or cool properly
  • Air distribution from the HVAC may be incorrect

AC/Heater Control Module Related Repair Advice

  • Fault codes stored in the HVAC control module should be reviewed as part of any HVAC system diagnosis
  • As with most computer controlled systems in modern vehicles, the climate control system may need occasional software updates to address various issues. A quality shop will check with the manufacturer to see if there are any Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) related to the problems you're having and will upgrade the software when possible.
