This happens to me but with the A/C. It flickers in pos 2. I have to fiddle with it sometimes. It's solid in 1 3 4. Everytime i turn the knob and it passes through 2, the A/C flickers. And i hear the compressor too.
Once i was idling and was hearing the compressor activating/disactivating a lot. Too much. When i looked the A/C was flickering once per second. Like if it's a bad contact or something...
i did this on mine yesterday and it works perfectly now!

Also, I was lazy haha. I just pulled the face plate out as far as i could and unplugged the center switch and did it from there. I didn't remove the front face plate completely.

After I put it all back together, I asked myself...did i have to remove the 2 metal cables that control the vent opening and hot/cold ratio?
not necessarily, but removing them helps to give u more access to the harness...
i was having trouble popping each metal contact out of the harness so i ended up just taking a q-tip with rubbing alcohol on it and cleaning the tips as much as possible...then i would use the pliers to squeeze the contacts as much as possible...works fine that way too

Is there a way to put a poll here? Just 2 options: WORKED FOR ME and DIDN'T WORK FOR ME.
You'd have to start a new thread. Hell, I'll even sticky that for a week or so just to get a good idea of people who've tried it. Link it in the first post so it can keep going past that. It does seem like most responses have been positive. Good work dude!
I was so glad to see this up at the top. Mine is starting to flicker more and more at 2 & 3. It was driving me nuts during our trip in TN this past week. I was just telling my hubby that I needed to come here and search out the fix for it.
