I have a 2016 Prius IV with some very odd climate control issues. Up until about a few weeks ago the climate control worked normally. It came on immediately when starting the car to the last preset and worked as it should. Now the climate control takes about a minute to show anything on the screen and allow me to change any settings. When it turns on it seems to start at a default state with the "Auto" button on and the AC turned on. The heat also starts out at the same set temp every time it turns on no matter the last preset. While driving the heat is very hot and only cools down when stopped even when lowered to the lowest heat setting. After bringing it to the dealer to diagnose, they told me the climate control head unit would need to be replaced which I have done and I still yield the same odd issues. Has anyone else had these issues or have any insight? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Sounds like a bad relay. Never allow repairs unless the mechanic agrees that would fix the problem. Otherwise, he should replace the part and give you back your money. Stupid people always get away ripping off customers. There are codes and diagnostic tools for every problem that pinpoints what is the issue and how to fix it. One has to find a skilled mechanic, not an idiot who replaces many parts without results..
