I just picked up this 1990 Cadillac Brougham 6 door limo by Eureka. It's a nice car, but someone had stabbed the ECC with a knife! I replaced the control head and all was well. That is, until yesterday. After starting the car I hit the warmer button... no response. I can make it cooler, but not warmer. In the process of trying to figure this out, now I cannot turn it off either! Now when I drive it, the display flickers on and off. Do I need another "new"head, or is there a way to fix these? Thanks!

PS - I cannot enter diagnostic mode as both buttons to do so are not responding!

Try spraying and working the buttons with Electric Contact Cleaner.
Fixed a sticky button on mine that way, and the seat up/down switch.
Might not help but cheap and easy.

Check and clean the contacts on the back side, also the contacts under the hood where it connects to the temp sensor for the climate system.

It's a funeral parlour car. It's been stabbed with a knife by a grieving client. It's dead. Get a replacement ECC head.

Cheers.........R.
