Hooked up termjnals wrong, now temp and radio controls not working

Asked by Jan 12, 2019 at 06:11 PM about the 2017 Ford Explorer XLT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

4 Answers

Mistakenly hooked up battery incorrectly and shorted out center panel below the LCD screen that has heated seat, radio, and temperature controls. The LCD screen still works so everything is duplicate except the heated seat control which now stays on constantly. I can’t identify the fuse(s) that have been affected. Please help.

Check your fuses - # 33 for the radio and # 11 for front climate control

Fuse blown?

Will do, but both climate control and the radio work through the LCD screen. So it seems to be a larger relay or fuse that would control the whole panel but I can’t see what that would be. Thanks
