The unit controls a wire that runs to the front of the firewall and its blue. Follow it to the blend door and have someone move the temp and see if you can see any movement. The motor gears can strip, and I don't know what else, but it can also pop off. It controls the blend door which opens and closes the hot water flowing through.

Hello...so what did you have to replace? Were you able to do it yourself? I found a couple acuras in the junkyard and took out the control panel in the dash board, I tried a couple different ones but it didn't matter the heat is stuck on no matter what...thanks for your help

Go to page one here and download the free manual. It will show you those parts and a trouble shooting of it as well. There are so many parts that one persons success is anothers waste of money. The actuator to the door that closes off the hot water could also be unhooked or frozen, or the motor that opens closes shot. or the arm that moves it stripped.
