I know from experience with a few different GM products I've owned or used at work they seem to use poor quality switches. My '98 K1500 is just now starting to become somewhat intermittent at different fan speeds. I just have to wiggle the control. Not sure about the 2006 but in my '98 the whole heater control assembly must be changed as a unit. I have a spare one that was fried by my stupidity when installing a stereo years ago but all the controls are still like new. I will replace them when it becomes an issue. The other thing I find with a lot of GM (and other) manufacturers is that soldered connections fail due to heat/cold and vibration found in all vehicles. The are just not a suitable connecion to use for larger, high current applications in a vehicle. Last year I had to take apart the 4x4 dash switch and re-solder the switch to the circuit board and it's as good as new now. Problem is when you take it to a shop they go ahead and swap out the whole switch assembly, they don't have the time/knowledge to take it apart and actually fix the problem.......parts changers!! :roll:
I know I've saved quite a few bucks over the years for myself and others, soldering up electronic dashboards, switches, heater controls,.........the sending unit in my fuel tank. The list goes on.
