A/C Thermostat Location???

I'm trying to follow the FSM's diagnosis procedure for the A/C but it only shows a very close up picture of the A/C Thermostat and I have NO CLUE where it is. I cannot find any connectors that have the wire colors denoted in the FSM.

It says to locate the A/C thermostat and jump the blue/yel and blue/red on the 2p connector. ---- CANT FIND THE THERMOSTAT.


Please help!

Re: A/C Thermostat Location???

Ok, so I've established that it's probably my climate control unit that's causing my A/C to be stupid. I've pulled the unit and removed the circuit board and it appears that most if not all of the 16 posts on the GREEN connector are all cracked. I'm going to make an attempt at a repair later this evening probably.

When disassembling the unit, I found that it's obviously been attempted before with little success. There was actually half of a writing pen (with no guts) jammed between the climate control housing and the circuit board itself. So, not only are the green connector posts cracked, but aprrox 30+ posts to other various parts of the board have been bent or pushed over.

The soldering still looks solid with no cracks on everything but the green connector but they've all been pushed over. Some have no posts at all and appear to be "flat" soldering joints. I'm pretty sure that i've purchased this car from a complete moron who thought he could bite off more than he was able to chew. As lil ms prelude knows, my car also cuts off when you hit the wiper fluid switch and if i bump my foot under the dash by the main harness, sometimes the car will not start at all. I have to jiggle them to get going.


UUUUUUUUUGH... I can't wait til I can get passed this electrical crap and move on to something a little more gratifying.

Re: A/C Thermostat Location???

Has anyone ever replaced the A/C thermostat? Can it be done without removing the evaporator?
