Welcome. We are in live chat.
so can it be done?
It is difficult. The wiring, plugs, module, ducting are all different.
The auto system has temp sensors through out the dash and an inside air temp sensor in the headliner.
You would need to run all that wiring, change the duct then get a VIN that has the AUTO system and program it all. \
Honestly, I do not think it is worth the expense to get this feature but it is possible.
oh boy, I was hoping for something a little closer to plug and play
one more thing, I would like to switch out my "jumper seat" in front and replace it with a center console. How intense is this swap?
The full console?
the requires differend dash trim on the lower side, plus the wiring .
To get it in, you need to remove the front seats and that is about it.
IF you could get the cab of a wrecked truck that ahs all this, then it may be cheaper.
yes, ebay has one with everything including the glove box
how much wiring would i need to change
also a little worried about the vent/ duct that connects to the console and brings the air to the rear
As you should be. The duct will need to be changed.
I think it is just th outter trim like the glove box and so on. YOu would also need the different hush panel under the passengers side.
This is from a wreck, so I can get whatever I need. I just need to be able to tell him what all that is. Can you help with a list?
Thanks a ton! It all make sense except the headliner wiring and the roof wiring? I don't think I will do the automatic climate swap, just the center console. (not to be confused with an overhead console) Will I still need the temp sensors?
Also, HVAC module?
The inside air temp sensor sits in the headliner above the drivers head so you need to add the wiring for that.
I will not have an inside air temp if i keep my manual climate control, at least I don't have it right now. So still same list, or list minus the temp sensor and the headliner wiring/ roof harness?
Yes that sounds way more intense than just installing the center console alone. Thanks for all your help.
any other words of advice you can think of?
Honestly, what I said before, not worth the money, but that is my personal opinion
yes I agree. Thanks again
You are welcome.
