Is your air conditioner working? Do you have any blowing air from a/c or heater?

it's rare, but the switch might have gone bad.

It is not the fuses so it must be the switch. Does anyone know how much the switch costs?

Please post if it is the switch. I just picked up a 2002 Beetle to replace the 2000 that gave its life when my daughter hit a guardrail three weeks back. And so far the only problem is that the rear window defroster does not work. Fuses are ok so its a switch or a relay someplace.
