'93 300E 2.8 -- This weekend, my automatic climate control panel decided not follow orders anymore. Whatever I select, ventilation or A/C at any of the fan speeds, with recirculation or not, nothing is coming into the cabin. I checked the engine when I select the A/C trying to isolate the problem, and found out that the A/C pipes are frosting .. so the A/C unit is working, but the panel is not. The strange thing is that sometimes when I am driving, the air starts to come in just fine ... but definitely, not when I press the buttons ... if the air is working and I turn the car off and then on, it stops coming in ... could this be a fuse problem ... any suggestion how I can get this panel under control ... should I open the center console and look for any particular signs ... I can use your help, especially when it's 90 degrees and humid these days -- thanks!

George, there is a large strip fuse in a separate housing to the front of the main fuse box and close to the fender. The fuse for the fan is in there. Open it up and remove the fuse element and inspect it. I'll bet it's corroded, or partially open. I would start there. Believe it's a 30 amp item..

Jeff, you were right on. The fuse was cracked. I changed it in minutes and it cost me all of 74 cents, thanks to your help and advice ... you are just amazing -- George.
