Icon5 Max A/C won't work, but A/C works. WTF?

Hey all,

Just noticed this a few days ago. A/C works perfect, but when I switch it to Max A/C, nothing happens. There's no extra boost from the blowers like normal.

Anybody else had this problem?

Fuse problem? Or something different.

vacuum leak on an actuator?? All the max AC does is switch to recirculate and sets thermostat to full cold.

I have the same problem as you except I can only use the air at max. The smaller fan settings dont work for me.

A new blower motor resistor should fix it up!

Blower does not spin any faster, nor does it make the ac colder.

All the max setting does is open up the recirculate door. Which is in the pass side foot well.

Check for kinked or disconnected vacuum lines.
