A/c not turning off! Climate control not working! Help please

Hi everyone ,
AS the title says, all of a sudden in my Gf's 96 TL, Climate control stopped working . Ac is constantly on and on the climate control screen numbers are all scrambled and looks liek screen in froze and all the switches are like disabled and not workign at all ! Ac is blowing on full blast and nothign is working at all ! sometime fan is going on on low speed then jumps back to full speed
"No switches are working"

Anyone knows what it could be? i am assuming i might only need to replace A/c Heater control unit i think its bad? or it coupld be something else? from what its acting up , I can feel that the switches are broken as the "temperature numurals" are scrambles and not showing any actual numbers on it

Help please
Thanks a lot

I think AC is ON because of a "safety standard"( If something happens to climate control, it will still work on defogger). If this is it then I am 75% sure you need new climate control unit.<---correct me If I am wrong pls.

+1 on disconnecting and reconnecting it. This might reset the unit and clear up the problem. You can also try to remove the radio fuse and putting it back in. I remember when my radio got stolen last year, the fuse was blown out and everytime I turn off the car and start it again, the climate control unit would reset itself and not keep its memory. Also, to know that you are removing the right fuse, the clock will not work when the fuse is out. I forgot which one it was. Either the backup radio fuse or the radio fuse itself...

Also, out car have a self diag mode for the climate control unit. Try searching that up and see if you can get to that mode on the car.

Very easy to replace. It is just a matter of unscrewing it from the "wood grain" and disconnecting the plugs in the back.
