confused 2009 Mariner Climate control panel issue

My wife just informed me that the climate control panel is not functioning as it should. The switch that controls the fan speed will not work when it is set to speeds; 1, 2, or 3. It does work on speed 4 though. My first instinct is to replace it. I looked online and found one on ebay for about $90.

My wife then also mentioned that while she had the air conditioning on, it began blowing warmer air, not the usual refreshing cold air. Since the control for the thermostat is also on the climate control panel I would also think that replacement of it would be the way to go.


My question is if anyone else has had this problem yet? (How did you fix it?) Do you have any other thoughts on what the problem may be?

Not sure about that car but normally the heater speed fault is caused by the blower motor speed resistor pack failing .You may need air con recharged . Being a 2009 car , not still under warranty ?

Re: 2009 Mariner Climate control panel issue

Thank you for the tip and I will have to look into it a bit deeper. The A/C doesn't need to be recharged. The blower seems to only work on speed setting 4. not 3, 2, or 1. I am still confused as to why.

As for the warranty.... It ends at 60,000. I currently have 67k , quite unfortunate.

It almost certain that it's the blower resistor. Here's where it's located. Figure #2, item #19. The part is $8.88 at Rockauto. | Repair Guides | Component Locations | Component Locations | AutoZone.com

Problem Resolved!!!!! Thank you for the help. It was the blower resistor. I was happy to say which is only $9 and 15 min of labor. The part is behind the glove box, a little tight for a person with large hands but it is fixed. Thank you to all.
