Hybrid estima heater/climate control panel not working


Recommended Posts

Good evening all I was hoping to pick your brains.

We have a 2006 eatima hybrid which is awesome, until recently that is, the heater controls just stopped no lights no fans nothing on the display screen.

I can't find any fuses that have blown and have tried another control panel (second hand from ebay) and still the exact same problem. Does anyone have any ideas what would be the next thing to try, really need to get this sorted its getting quite warm in there.

Thanks in advance

The climate system is controlled by the A/c amplifier (basically an ecu for the A/C)

The fuses are well hidden on the Estima iirc the internal one is on the left hand side behind the glove box

 

does the interior light work ? I assume its a hybrid or is it a early NA car eg. ACR50

Thank you for responding so quickly.

Yes its a hybrid. The interior light is working. 

I think I have found all the fuze boxes and can't see anything amiss.

I guess I will have to try and find a new amplifier then?

The ac amp lives behind the heater controls in the black box attached to the controls (2 large connectors), unplugging it and plugging it back in wouldn't hurt, the flat ribbon cable can be brittle tho

Also find the part number

Hi, yes these are awesome vehicles.

There are some tricky to locate and tricky to access fuses on the driver and passenger footwells. You may need to lay on your back and glance up at each footwell to see them.

Do a continuity test on each fuse to locate any blown ones. I think they are micro fuses so have some ready.

Ah its a  AHR20 2006-2019 these use a different setup to the earlier cars, Do you have controls in the rear ?

Iirc the a/c amplifier is bolted near to the side of the blower motor housing on the AHR20

Its a black box with 3 white connectors 1 small, a large one in the middle and a slightly smaller one - the part number starts 88650-28B

Thank you for all your help. I have checked that fuse box and didn't see any blown. I will see if I can locate the amp tomorrow.
