My Climate Control Computer Module is fading in and out randomly, usually comes on a few minutes after driving and fades in and out with no particular pattern. When it fades, the words dim and the a/c stops blowing. I'm assuming I'm going to need to replace it, but I want to hear from some of you more experienced guys and girls who have dealt with this already. I've talked to a shop and he said $500 to replace it... but I see it costs around $290 on bavauto.com. Is it difficult to replace? Should I just pay the shop and let them do it?
If I don't need to replace it let me know what I can do to fix it. If I need to replace it, how involved is it?
The guy who had it before me put in an aftermarket CD player, and it looks a little sloppy and I plan on replacing it soon. If this could have anything to do with it, let me know.
