C5 - When your A/C display is dim

When you have a dim readout on your A/C modual for your C-5, the common problem is that the soder has become broken. It need to be re-sodered. Take the modual out of the dash and it will be the uppermost circuit board. Need help? Just ask me!

I had this a year or two back, and it's a relatively simple fix for anyone who's handy with a soldering iron. Worth knowing!

Ya, it is pretty much a simple fix. Just gotta be patient and take your time doing it!! Easy to damage parts if not handled carefully!

I have had to re-solder the resister packs on several HVAC controllers for C5s

Notice below on image of 1 I worked on to be sure to re-solder the five ones I show
Very little time to you doing this rather then big bucks finding a replacement

I took the mod out, relatively easy. Doing the sodering was the hard part. Just have to be patient with yourself but otherwise a piece of cake to do (easy!).
