Default Changing climate control head

Hello, I just signed up to this forum, i have a Chrysler 300m special edition here in New York City. Recently I have been having trouble with my climate control, i was told to get a new climate control head so i did.

No when it comes to installing it i have a concern, someone advised me to disconnect my battery. But will that erase my garage door setting? I live in a apartment building so that is a bit of an issue.

Thank You

Default Climate Control Head not Displaying

FIX: Seems this can be repaired easily by cleaning the connecting Plug to the Head.
This is miniature, tedious work:
1. disconnect Head Jack
2. The Plug can now be cleaned.
3. maneuver each Pin Receptor so that they will accept Pin by only slightly being pried into place.

I thought this sort of thing had been fixed on Chryslers YEARS ago. I first started working on Chryslers (Dodge) in the late 70s and came across bad electrical connectors on about 75% of the vehicles I worked on. Late 50s to 70s. In the 90s however I saw a dramatic improvement in the connectors on the Chrysler vehicles. I had assumed that was due in part to the many mergers and cross information with Daimler, Renaut, AMC and Fiat. Alas I was wrong or not entirely right anyway. Chrysler still maintained a little bit of its connector problem integrity (rather the lack thereof). When ever I bought or did substantial work on a Chrysler vehicle back then I would replace or substantially modify the connectors to make them less suceptible to malfunction. This issue is no less critical now in the Climate Control Head Connector Plug to Jack. The Plug has 15 female Pin Receivers that are often distorted, worn or corroded in use and must be cleaned and adjusted to work properly. No need to replace all Heads only to do the same thing again down the line. A little bit of time and you will see your display come up again.

1. Remove the Climate Control Head from the Console
2. Reconnect Head
3. Turn on Ignition (no need to start engine)\
4. Fiddle with the connector and Head
5. If the Display flickers or comes on then you have a connector issue, not a Head issue.

Thanks for you time
Normal replacement cost for a used Head OVER $100
