Climate Control Panel for '98 Holiday Imperial

Am hoping that someone can give me some direction.

I purchased a '98 Holiday Imperial 38WDS a few months ago and now find that I need a new Climate Control Panel - the one built into the dash board. It's the one that control the heat, a/c fan speed, etc.

I've searched the internet and can't come up with one that will fit into the dash and that will hook up to all existing wiring.

The problem with the existing one is that it won't allow the engine driven A/C compressor to engage resulting in no a/c from the dash outlets. - Was told that the cause is the faulty control panel.

Not being an "expert" on things in this area ( or anywhere else, for that matter ), I have to take the word of the shop that tried to fix it.....they also tried to come up with a new control panel - without any luck.

Any thoughts or suggestions would certainly be appreciated.

A photo of the dash HVAC control would help us help you. When I thought mine was bad, i discovered it was a panel made by Evans Tempcon. You might check the link, see if you see a matching panel. My panel, RV218416, was also used in Dodge pick up trucks, among others. I got a replacement from Ebay from a salvaged truck. You could also contact some of these RV salvage yards, and see if they have the panel.

If, as your mechanic tells you, it's a faulty switch in the panel, you should be able to remove the panel or the electric connector on the back of it and use a jumper wire between the two contacts to see that it truly is the panel switch. I'd do that before just replacing the panel.

Not having much confidence in most "shops" myself, I would be inclined to have another shop check it.

Failure of any of the switches in that panel would be pretty unusual.
