Year and Trim: 2001 bonneville SLE BLACK ON BLACK ROLLIN ON 20S
:dontknow:
Hello if there is anyone out there that can help it would save me hundreds of dollars. I have a 2001 pontiac bonneville sle w/ 114,000 miles.

The PROBLEM is the electronic heater controls turn off and on whille driving intermittently.
The heater temp display screen will then turn black and you can't use any buttons while this is happening the blower turns on high in defrost mode usually blowing cold air(with a black screen still and no function of buttons).

I replaced air blower resistor ($150)and the whole display screen/unit ($100) still no fix? What is the part i need to replace?
Im going to pick it up tonight from the auto shop which could not figure out the problem. they said take it to dealer maybe and maybe its the bcm??the dealer has a $95 diag. fee!!
please help asap this is my winter/work car and i cant even use the AIR controls.
THANKS

Do you happen to have an aftermarket head unit installed?

Sometimes when people put aftermarket stuff in, they have to chop away at the back of the hole to accommodate the deeper head unit. Directly behind the opening is the printed circuit cable which supplies power to the heater controls. If this cable is damaged in anyway, I can see how it would cause the heater controls to malfunction.

Even if you don't have an aftermarket head unit in now, it might have had one in the past. I'd pull the radio out and check things out.
