    Hi,

    The defrost, a/c, and re-circulation buttons don't work or light up? How do I fix this? It slowly went from the defrost to a/c & re-circulation not working.

    Thanks,

    Casey

    Yes, I checked the defrost fuse in the box by the hood latch, it was okay. Is there another one?

    Any leaks in your car? Maybe something is leaking into the climate control? Have you taken the climate control out/moved it around recently? Perhaps the wires are just getting old, or the connections are shot?

    I pulled the centre storage console and removed the dash below, low and behold, the re-circ, a/c, and defrost cluster cable was unplugged? It seems as though someone was in there "prior owner" and disconnected it and did not connect it back properly. Good work AHH VTEC ***** stars.

    Onto the next problem :)

    When I accelerate the parking brake light comes on. Only happens when I accelerate, and then goes off shortly afterward. More in the cold than when warm. Is it a defective park brake sensor or the park brake adjusted too high/low?
