    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : SRi Nav

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 130k

    Default I think I have fried it but you never know

    I have been doing my led swap for quite a long time. A bit here and there.

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...=140667&page=4

    I had this problem on my heater controls since the led swap.

    1 to 4 fan speeds work fine. Hot / cold is fine. All the buttons work but the direction of air flow is very odd. Select each setting and you can here the fans whiz up the the path of air changes but is a lot less power than before. Also the direction of air does not correspond to the selection made.

    I have not tried a spare as of yet but I thought I would post this in case someone has had the same or similar problem and fixed it with a fuse change etc.

    Many thanks

    Check that no little flecks of solder have found their way onto the tracks. I had something similar with my recirculate button.

    Thanks mate.

    I'm going to pull it out in a mo and have a good look around the board.

    Fingers crossed I find some thing like that.

    Will let you know

    Re plugged the heater panel in but still the same. Worth a try though.

    Now have it in bits and low and behold I see a very tiny bit of solder on the track to do with the air direction selector.

    Warming up my iron now. Fingers crossed.

    Power of the fans increased a bit the air flow direction is a tad knackered still.

    Looks like I'm looking for a replacement.

    Thanks for help though lads. As I said before it was worth a try.
