Default 2005 Toyota Highlander

Wifes Highlander Limited with digital heat control.

The knob to control the heat temperature is not working properly. Seems
you have to pull the knob towards you to adjust the heat. Is it the
potentiometer that is bad and can this be fixed without getting the
complete control module.

How hard is this to remove this panel from the dash and check the solder
joints on the switch. If i remove the knob I can see the switch but cant
see any problems. I need to remove the complete control panel.

thanks

I have a 2007 and turning the knob for the temp setting does not turn the
climate control on when it has been off. It does change the temp level so
that function of the knob is still OK. If I pressure the knob to the side
when turning the temp setting knob, the climate control does come on. The
climate control should turn on whenever either of the two knobs is turned
provided the CC has been off, as originally designed.

Seems like a similar problem. I just tolerate it for now, but wonder what
is wrong?

Good luck and if you find it before I do, please let me know what the
problem is.
