Climate control on dash flashing but unit works perfectly...2003, 8 cyl, S-Type

I have read many variations of why this has happened…please advise what is the issue and what is the fix. Hopefully it is something I can do here at home, as I also own a 1989 XJS which constantly tugs at me for attention.

This seems to happen mostly in HOT weather. I did witness this fault on a few cars. (X202s)

Thanks for replying, now the big question is…does it go away on its own?

I don’t know? The last time I saw this (5 or 6 years ago) the customer did not want a new module and the engine developed a ‘knock’ shortly thereafter so she sold the car for parts.

I think sometimes it is intermittent but never ‘goes-away’.

Thanks again for writing back…we’ll see what happens. We have owned the car for 2.5 years and this is the first time it has reacted this way.

Better news. When I started the vehicle this morning the climate control was not flashing.

“Intermittent” is the word of the day.

Thank you.
