Clean or replace R170 blower control selector?
I usually drive around with my climate control in the "AC Off" mode by pressing the "AC Off" button, causing the red LED on the button to light up.
On this 03 230 I recently acquired, I've noticed that more often than not, when I move the blower selector to the "0" position, the red LED will tend to flicker on and off for a bit...sometimes eventually staying off & sometimes eventually staying on
I've also noticed that when the LED remains on that there is still air flowing out of the vents, and that if I jiggle the blower control switch a bit, the LED will go out & the airflow out of the vents stops.
So my guess is that the blower control switch either needs to be cleaned or replaced. Has anyone done either & can offer some ideas/tips?
