Climate control switch issue.
Hello, I just had a friend who knows a lot about installing car radios help me get my aftermarket radio installed into my 99 ford escort. and the problem isn't with the radio or the speakers or any of that, he did a great job there.
problem is with the climate controls that are also attached to the faceplate.
two problems one it's stuck on full heat for the temp as he couldn't figure out how to reattach it since there wasn't enough cord for the temp connector to reach the face plate if it's not all the way in, I think there's gotta be some trick we are missing on that.
the other problem I have is with the vent selector, when ever I turn it on it blows at the windshield and the floor. I can adjust the speed it blows at properly. but not where it blows. no matter what vent option I pick it will only blow to those two areas, like it thinks I set it to that setting where it's suspoed to do that. my guess is possibly a wire pair got spliced that wasn't suspoed to. and when the switch is in the windshield and floor mode bouth those wires are on. so that's why the system thinks i selected that option all the time, as that's the signal it's actualy getting due to the crossed wires inted of the signal the swich is trying to send. am I right on that? and if so how should the wires be connected? or what am i missing? my friend says that once we can figure out how to fix those to problems he'll do it for me and would rather not have to pay for a mechanic to do them if I can avoid it.
the selector worked properly before the aftermarket radio was put in so I do belive it's due to at least one of the wires he had to reconnect.
