I'm having what sounds like a similar issue. Regardless of which buttons I push the fan does not come on and the compressor never starts. Worse - regardless of where I turn the thermostat it seems as though it is stuck on max heat (luckily the fan won't come on! - still though the natural venting pulls the heat in).
I'm trying to get to the panel of pushbuttons in the center console but I can't figure out how to get the (stock) radio out. I think it has some kind of theft deterrent system and looks like it might even require some kind of special tool to release the radio...(picture attached)
Any help on disassembling the center console, getting the radio out, etc., would be greatly appreciated.
Also any information on pricing for a replacement pushbutton set - the dealer told me $1500 (installed).
