Some owners may experience a blown fuse, erratic HVAC operation, or a blinking HVAC control head self diagnostic indicator.
Two possible hard to find causes have been discovered for the above symptoms:
Six way I/P to HVAC connector terminals may short to the ashtray. The connector has slots to accommodate the terminal positive attachment locks
that allow metal to metal contact between the exposed terminals and the ashtray (Figure 1).
