My honda accord HVAC indicator lights periodically go out and only the blower works (ie. the air stops being cooled or heated). Turning off the car and restarting it sometimes solves the problem but not always. Any idea why this is happening?

This happened to my 03 Accord. My A/C would not blow cold air, and it only happened when the shift position lights on the dash would not light up for any position but park. Turned out to be a weak battery, so you might want to get it tested (autozone tests them for free).
#44 of 159 99 Accord Climate control issues
Sep 29, 2007 (2:13 pm)
I dont have the automatic climate controls just the regular 2 nobs and 8 buttons its a 99 4 door accord ex, all lights work but the indicator lights telling you which options(buttons) are selected, can not get the a/c to blow cold or hot cant switch from face to feet or use the rear defroster but when i turn on the head lights all inside lights work including the clock, i took out the climate control panel and check the circuit board no bad traces or blown components, any ideas?

Now that fall is here there may be times when you want to blow warm air on the windshield/windows, but don't need the A/C running. Here is a quick hack that will allow your 2003+ Honda to give you more control over your A/C without losing any functionality. It allows you to turn off the A/C while the defog is selected.
I have done the hack and it works well.
1) With vehicle on, push the airflow button for "top vent".
2) Shut car off.
3) Turn temp knob to the coldest setting
4) Turn fan off
5) How down both "Air Recirculation" button and "AC" button. With both buttons depressed, turn key to "ON" position. (don't need to actually start the car) Keep holding the buttons down for at least 7 seconds.
6) The AC and Air Recirculation lights will light up and flash at different points during the 7 second hold-down.
7) When the air recirculation light stops flashing, release the two buttons.
Now you have full control over the AC. When you hit the Defog button, the AC light will now illuminate. You can now shut it off if you so desire and get Defog air without AC!

Thanks! Works like a charm.

i have the same issue with my 1999 honda accord coupe LX-V6. the climate control panel was blinking on and off for the past year, but now nothing... it's all dead. fans are the only thing that works in terms of climate control... no panel lights or controls??? also, as elroy posted here, my " floor shifter lights " are dead too... the park, reverse and drive lights on the shifter went out about three years ago. also, my cruise control " ON " panel light indicator does not light up. i'm going to have the battery tested this weekend as suggested here online, but i don't think that that's the issue b/c everything else works... however, little by little the electrical functions are failing, so maybe that's what's up. if anyone has any additional information on this issue, please let me know. i would sorely appreciate it. post here or feel free to email me " emailkennymsn.com "
#48 of 159 2007 Honda Accord A/C Question
Nov 02, 2007 (11:35 am)
I have a 2007 Coupe and noticed that everytime I turn on the fan in my car it seems like the a/c is coming on, is this normal? Am I going to have to press the a/c button each time I turn on the fan to turn the a/c off? I thought that the only time the a/c is on is if the display shows "A/C On" but is it on when the display doesn't say "on" or "off"? Basically, since it is cool these days I want to be able to turn on just my fan without the a/c coming on.

Sounds like an issue with the circuit board, even if it may not be visible on the surface.

Were 2003-2007 Accords different than previous generation(s) in that regard? In my 1998, AC can be turned off, while defog is selected (it will turn on everytime defog is selected but can be overridden).

I'm assuming you have auto climate control (you never said). If you press "Auto", then the A/C will run the majority of the time. Simply select A/C OFF on the display (by pushing the A/C button) and it will not use the compressor. I tried this today in my aunt's Odyssey which I used for the day. I noticed that within 3 minutes my windows were fogging up though, so AUTO was the way to go (it was 48 degrees so I typically wouldn't run the A/C either). I had the temp set on 70.
