Rear air fan problem

Rear air keeps going on full blast then off every 10 seconds or so, can't figure out how to stop it. Anyone heard of this or know what's going on maybe?

What you describe has only happened once to me - and I didn't think it was the rear fan either but now I'm not sure as it was a short trip...but I noticed it doing the full fan thing every few seconds. Hasn't done it since so I kinda forgot til you mentioned.

NO turn it off, and then turn off the rear A/C from the rear consul.
Then select "SYNC ON" and see what temp is showing on the rear display, it should match the front, if it does then see how that goes, if NOT it needs replacing.

what happens if you turn AC rear back to on? does the fan problem happen again? If not them perhaps whatever initially caused it is now cleared.

I had this happen to me this morning too. Very weird...

I have it on my 2013. I don't remember the name or logo on the button, but all vents (front+rear) match the driver setting.

This is why I don't use it. I keep the rear AC off all the time unless someone is sitting there.
