Heat/AC Mode Knob

Hello, new owner of a 2006 Pacific Blue. Named simply "Good ol' Blue".

The Heat Mode knob works fine, but feels loose and the max window defrost stays lit at all times. My guess is the internals are broken and the light is not rotating with the knob bezel. Is this a common problem? I'm adept at servicing my own vehicles, so is it worth it to remove the knob/switch and attempt repairs myself?

Thanks for any help in advance.

Welcome....

The one light stays on all the time and is working correctly. Don't know why, I know it seems not right.

I always use recirculate when AC is on, it works best.

And if the truck runs hot, turn on the AC as it puts the electric rad fan on and helps cool down engine.

Our control knobs are from a european car I believe.

Yes, Rebel is right, they are Alfa Romero Controls. And they are EXPENSIVE to replace.

Retail for over $600 bucks.

What appears to be a light on is just the position indication. The light you see is just the control panel lighting showing through an orange highlight. GM should have left this white, like the rest of the knob.

Fiber optic eh!

I will look closer and see if the color can be filed / sanded off.

How are those air shocks working?

Port Lavaca, Tx here. But I'm a registered car nut that grew up just south of
Charlotte, NC in the heart of Nascar country. ...and yes, my first motor was a big-block Chevy!

Air shocks!! That reminds me of those Hijacker air shocks I had back in the mid 70's so that I could rise the rear end up for those wide 60 series tires.
