Dorman's HVAC Control Module Repair Kit restores proper functionality to a variety of cabin temperature options for optimal performance. When the original assembly fails, the temperature settings no longer function properly, resulting in replacement of the entire HVAC Control Module. Dorman's OE FIX repair solution allows you to purchase the HVAC Control Module Repair Kit separately to replace just the failed component, instead of buying an entirely new assembly. Dorman's repair kit is complete with improved materials to prevent future failures from reoccurring, easy to install and significantly cut repair costs.

My wife's Highlander's air conditioning stop working. We talked with our mechanic and he told us that replacing the climate control system would cost upwards of $1,000. He also told us that this was a common problem with the Highlander and resulted from a cable that connects the climate control motherboard to the temperature control rheostat. Apparently, if the temperature control knob is at all loose, the cable moves back and forth until, ultimately, one or more of the three wires in the cable breaks.
I researched this online and discovered a YouTube video that showed how to solder three wires to bypass the cable. I also found out that the climate control unit could be purchased for $700+. So, I decided to try my hand at the solder fix. I followed the instructions in the video to pull the unit, then soldered the three wires in. Happy days, the air conditioning worked! I tested all the other functions, heater, vent control, etc. and everything worked. Problem solved, right?
Well this winter, my wife discovered that the heater didn't work. I pulled the unit again and discovered that one of the wires I had soldered had become disconnected. I'm not great at soldering, and the space between the terminals where the wires have to be soldered is so tiny, that I didn't think that I could re-solder it with shorting across to one of the other wires.
So, back online to look for the best price for the control unit. As, I'm searching Amazon, I came across the Dorman 599-040 Climate Control Module Repair Kit. There was only one review, but it was positive, so I thought, why not, its worth a try. If it works, it saves me at least $700 if I were to purchase a new unit and $1,000 If I had my mechanic fix it.
Am I glad I did! The replacement was easy, the instructions clear, and now everything works! If you are experiencing this problem, I strongly recommend that you purchase this kit to resolve it.
I have to say the the previous reviewer it right, the clock light no longer dims when you turn the headlights on, but that's a minor inconvenience considering th amount of money saved!
HOWEVER, only three of the five replacement bulbs worked, and they were much dimmer than the original bulbs, so I ended up having to take the unit out a second time to reinstall the old bulbs. So if your current panel lights work fine, I would recommend NOT replacing the bulbs.
