Loafin - Don't have experience with the particular model you mentioned but the indications you described usually are a result of a bad thermocouple.

Steve is on the right track, you do need to hold the knob down for 3-4 seconds to get the thermocouple up to temp.

Welcome to our Forum. I see by your login that you must have purchased Fisher's Alpine. Hope to see you at an Alpine Rally in the near future.

When I had my 99 had same problem. Alpine told me to take your fist and hit down on the knob, not too hard though. Always worked for me.
