Default Digital climate control does not light up but everything functions properly?

I am looking into purchasing another Vr4 and have found a nice one. I was told the only problem with the car is that the digital climate control display does not light up. The AC, heat, defrost etc. all function properly though. Does this sound like a fuse might be out or something more serious? Any ideas would help

if the display is not working then it's a bad unit, unfortunately theres no fuse that pertyains just to the screen. The unit is easy to replace and not too expensive if you find someone parting a car.

Dude, buy it no problem, I had the same thing. I bought another unit off ebay. It didnt work either so i started thinking that it is maybe my cars fault. I gave it one more try. I went to my community college to some electronics teacher. He repaired it in 5 minutes. Its a matter of like one transistor (or however you call them).

My climate control screen doesn't light up either but from looking at where it's mounted it seems like it would NOT be too easy to pull it. I can't ever seem to find a write-up on removal and reinstallation, so can anyone who has done it please explain in further detail what all is involved?

it's actually not bad, you need to remove the center vent by using two flathead screwdrivers to lift up the two metal clips inside the vent. once vents is out, theres is one screw holding the top of the unit in. next remove the pieces of plastic that separate the center console from the dash, they should just pop off. there are 2 screws back there, one on each side of the console, remove those screws and the unit will be free. in order to manuever it out, you may have to remove your radio and the climate control computer that is above the radio.

Pull it apart and look for R-38. It may be burnt, and replace it with a 1ohm resistor.

Hey Dave, R-38 is inside the unit? I posted elsewhere before I saw this.
