bizzarre air conditioner

Asked by May 23, 2017 at 03:57 PM about the 1999 Acura TL 3.2 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My thermostat turns all the way up to 90 as
im turning it down it hits 75 clicks twice and
starts going back up all the way up to 89
degrees as I'm turning it down none of the
buttons on the dash work such as the AC
auto defrost or off buttons obviously there's
a short somewhere my blower motor works
fine there is not a blown fuse anywhere or
relay there are a few other shorts I'm not
sure if it is significant to the air conditioner
one of them is my tail lights if my headlights
are on and my cruise control is working my
tail lights do not cruise control works
without the headlights and when I run a
diagnostics test it says there is a short in
the a /c gear position switch I have jump-
started my condenser fan by bypassing the
relay with a wire so I know it works and the
relay is fine and that little box underneath
the dash that's accessible from the
passenger side is in perfect working
condition as well I cannot for the life of me
figure out what's going on with this thing I've
been trying for a year never found anything
on the internet can anybody help me
