  • A/C woes

    I recently R&Rd my dash and heater core box to replace a leaking heater core. After reassembly, the A/C no longer works; it only blows hot, and the ambient temperature reading on the climate control unit reads 45F regardless of the outside temperature. I swapped both a good spare head unit and a good spare ambient temperature sensor into the car, and still got readings of 45F.
    I followed the ambient temperature sensor/circuit analysis according to the FSM. With the circuit open, the dash reading should be -56F, which is what I got. With the circuit shorted, the dash reading should be 181F. I got -13F. What I interpret from this is that I have neither an open circuit nor a short. Does anyone understand what this is telling me, or have any suggestions how to fix this problem?
    All the vacuum lines are good and correctly reconnected.

    Never mind. It turned out I had incorrectly connected two identical connectors under the dash; when I reversed them, everything returned to normal.
