HOW TO: Clean Climate Control Sensor

Postby Qxxx4 » Tue Sep 15, 2009 11:54 am

was cleaning up the mess the previous owner left in regards to a remote starter, which never worked right so I unplugged the unit when i bought the vehicle. I ended up cleaning the really dusty paneling under there and putting in a better brighter security led, and wired up the security LED from the remote starter that is on the windshield to the same LED. Ended up finding this very dirty sensor

then just simply remove all the connectors, and the hose just pops off

easy, but easily overlooked

Were you having problems with your climate control or something? Did it make a difference after cleaning it?

It's to the right of the steering wheel. You can barely see it in the lower right corner of this picture:
