I'm thinking the reason for the thermal fuse failure is the cabin air filter being dirty enough to cause the automatic temperature module to work too hard to move an appropriate amount of air thru the system, overheating the thermal module.Hello, I have read the posts about replacing the thermal fuse. I tried a jumper and everything works, but the whole module got too hot to touch-is that normal?
Why would the fuse have blown in the first place?
Am I better off replacing the entire module or will the fuse in the new module blow again?
Do you think taking it to the dealer for evaluation makes sense?
I would like to use this thread and this forum to say a big THANK YOU!!!!Sure, I can help a fellow MDXer. PM me with your contact information and we can set something up.
It's amazing how a $1 solution from this forum can save us $1000 from the insane criminal that tried to rip some members off.Have an 02 MDX that stopped blowing air out of the front vents, whenever I try the front it instead goes out the back vents. I was quoted about 1k for repairs so instead I'm going to try and fix it myself with the info everyone has provided above and hope for the best.
