Hi there. Check the switch for any loose wires or shorts from the blower motor switch to the ignition switch. Check the condition of the wire connections for an corrosion and see if the wires are loose on the ground. If you need further assistance troubleshooting your vehicle, then consult with a certified technician from YourMechanic, to diagnose the heater/ac and move forward with repairs.
