There’s been an interesting progression of trouble with my 2001 Buick Century:
My heat/AC had been working fine for years. About a year ago, the dial which controls the force of air (off, low, high, max, etc.) broke. But the ‘off’ and ‘max’ portions still worked. I could get full blast, or nothing. I didn’t do anything, because I could still get what I wanted.
Just yesterday, I switched my heat to max - and nothing! No air comes out at all now. Obviously this is problematic for the upcoming winter.
I am of very limited car expertise (a Latin teacher who should probably just stick with chariots). What’s wrong, and if I take it to a mechanic, will they make me get a whole new climate control console? Is it fixable myself, or if not, how much should I expect to pay?
Thanks folks for all your help!
