None of my ac/heater controls seem to work. The fan is unresponsive (xs) in auto or manual. The fuses are good, under the dash and in the engine compartment, and I switched the fan and ac relays.

Any power to resistor block at heater/blower? If there is perhaps the resistor pack is done. Would try direct power to blower to see if it turns. Anyway work your way back, sounds like your getting there. Climate control units do go bad too so I would not rule that out. Good Luck!

Resistor packs are bypassed when in max speed mode, so I doubt it's that...but check anyway, as maybe something melted in a connector.
