I just got an '06 and i would like to hear some opinions on what the fail points are and what support mods I need to fix that. I'm pretty familiar with my '01 and it's fuel system but the '06 not so much. :peelout

Oh yea, check to see if the Multi-Function Switch was replaced, pretty sure the 06's were recalled for that!

HVAC = Heating ventilation and air conditioning. There are several doors that have a tendency to fail, when they do they each have certain symptoms. These doors include Mode, Blend, Recirc and maybe one more.

MFS= Multifunction Switch, this is the turn signal/high beam/windshield washer stalk on the lt side of the column. THese trucks are famous for the switches going out and causing weird issues with the wipers.

Thanks. That makes sense. The a/c vents in the back seat don't blow. and the a/c controls don't light up when i turn the lights on. Thirdly when switching the controls that change up the airflow, the trasition between vents is real slow. Sometimes it doesn't change at all, till i play with it. How can i fix that.

Best to use the search function and search "recirc door" or "mode door". days worth of reading...good luck!

Not to hijack my thread but, Do i need to upgrade my lift pump? I'm not real familiar with the cp3. Everyone has been telling me to get good fuel filter. So i got that down. What support mod would be the best idea?

Unless you plan on adding a bunch more fuel most dont replace the LP until it starts going...your new filter doesnt require a better LP.

Your best bet on spending $ would be to drive it for a while and see where it needs improvement, while your doing this save up your coins...they are expensive little devils!!!:headbang:

A good fuel filter with a low micron rating is always a plus for the CR injector.

As far as supporting mods it really just depends what your wanting to do with the truck. What are your intentions for future mods?

You should be fine doing those things without further upgrades. Just be careful with the edge.
