Automatic Climate Control?

Post by shreksbrother » Sun Apr 14, 2019 12:47 pm

Has anyone tried to install a center bezel with automatic climate control? I bought some seats with heat, but the only center bezel I can find with seat heater controls also have auto climate control. I would love to have auto climate control, as well, but I'm sure it's not as easy as swapping that panel out.

Are additional sensors needed? If it's a programming change, that's no problem, as I have a ForScan.

Any thoughts?

I have not seen anyone do this - I just added switches to run the heating element in the seats.

What type of switches? The factory ones, or something aftermarket? I would love to get the seats working.

Any chance you could let me know how you wired these switches?

So the answer, for anyone looking to do this...

Go to the junkyard and find the panel with the heater controls. Not only is it plug and play for the heated seats, it's also plug and play for fully automatic HVAC!!! As soon as I connected it, the temps came up on the screen and the auto control worked perfectly. Plus, using that panel closed the gap I had between the center console and the panel. Couldn't be happier!
