    06 Climate Control LCD out

    Hi guys. I recently picked up a 06 DTS w/ 67K miles and just now realized the climate LCD isn't working. If I apply pressure to the screen by running my finger over it, I can see the display. Could the LCD crystals be burned out already, has anyone else had this issue, and is it a DIY'er?

    If it lights up when you push on it, it's probably bad solder joints. Fairly easy to repair once the display/control module is removed.

    Does it need to be replaced?
    Has anyone else experienced this?

    All LCD displays have a light source behind the LCD to light them. I would check that first before replacing it.

    Thx, for the response.
    I'm assuming I'd have to remove the Temp control cluster? As I said earlier, when I put pressure on the screen some characters will display, does that indicate anything?

    I see replacements on ebay for like $25. Given the price should I just buy a replacement?

    Is this what I need?

    Well I ordered one from Ebay. It was only $20 shipped. Any info on how to take the dash face plates off to replace?

    For future reference or those who may be experiencing the same malfunctioning LCD on their temp control unit. I purchased a replacement part from Ebay for $20 shipped and swapped it out.
    To remove it, follow the trim removal (loosening) instructions below to access the unit. It took about 5 minutes. I did purchase a trim removal tool set from Harbor Freight for like $5 so I wouldn't break any of the clips or damage the trim
