560 sel climate control inop

Hi all. I tried a search, but didn't find anything similar to what I have. The thing is, I have nothing. the blower doesn't come on in any position, hot or cold setting; compressor clutch not kicking on; I can't hear any flappers opening or closing at the different settings. I didn't put a meter on it yet, but the fuses look good, and I moved the relays around trying to move the problem, but nothing yet. I'm going to try to trace voltage tomorrow with the dmm, but I was hoping one of the resident experts could help. BTW it's been sitting for a while, and the a/c worked last time I ran it. Thanks,

Try a search for ignition switch. The first symptom on mine was no climate control. Good luck.

Yup, I agree with Greenacres, sounds like the ignition switch. Try giving it a little jiggle. Look closely at the tick marks on the bezel, I think you'll find the key is just a hair off the mark. Once the jiggle gets it on the mark, the ACC should come to life.

Lots of jigglers 'round here .

When jiggling time comes around ( visiting the 126 family ), is it the tumbler that needs replacing ?
