Today’s Vehicle Electronics are becoming very High-tech with the addition of many new creature comforts. One such feature is Dual Temperature Control, Automatic Temperature Control (ATC) or also called Electronic Climate Control. This feature allows the ability of adjusting different temperatures and fan speeds for the driver and passengers. Another word associated with temperature controls is  HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) which refers to technology of indoor or automotive environmental comfort. Most common failure complaints with ATC systems is the mode selection fails or loses it’s ability to switch airflow which defaults to the defrost setting. This system is very complex, with a specified procedure to determine the particular conditions present. This should be diagnosed by a Certified Automotive Technician and requires the use of a scan tool to check for set DTC’s which may affect HVAC operations when present.

Dorman Products now offers a line of remanufatured Climate Control Modules. Dorman has recognized a few failures and improved these problems of the climate control modules.
With all modules one failure that was redesigned is in the mode selection, which results in the lose of ability to switch airflow and defaults to the defrost setting.
On models 599-030, 599-001 and 599-003 the lamp failures have be addressed.
Model 599-030 a revise to the back-lighting has been done along with a update to the deterioration of o-rings. These Remanufactured climate control modules are fully tested, and are plug and play ready for easy installation with No Programming Required.

TO INSURE CORRECT ORDERING  OF AUTOMATIC TEMPERATURE CONTROL MODULES YOU SHOULD MATCH-UP THE OEM PART NUMBER. TO OBTAIN A FACTORY PART NUMBER, HAVE THE  VIN NUMBER ON HAND AND GIVE YOUR LOCAL DEALERSHIP PARTS DEPARTMENT A CALL FOR THE FACTORY PART NUMBER YOU ARE REPLACING.

    I have an 03 escalade with the auto HVAC controls. Is there a way to buy just the smoked plate that covers the display? Mine works great just missing the cover.

    I have a 2005 chevy avalanche. I need a heater/ca control assembly. It stopped giving heat to the driver side. The mechanic positioned it to heat only but now that summer is here I need to replace it. It might be called a climate control module. I’m not certain but I need a part number for it.
