JK's aren't luxury vehicles, so you may be barking up the wrong tree if you want a cheap slick advanced auto climate control system.I have a 2013 JK and I'm wondering what it would take to convert to auto climate control...
Read below...If the JK is anything like other makes/models, it will take a lot of work and wiring. There are lot of sensors/motors for ACC that regular climate control doesn't need.
With the way the Jeep pumps out heat, I could see the benefit of ACC.Curious as to the motivation? Cool factor? Some benefit?
What if you used some slick home thermostat in the circuit? You would have to adjust the Hot/Med/Cold yourself, but it could certainly maintain the temperature.I believe it's all the matter of replacing the current AC/Heating controls and a dealer program.
If I'm wrong, someone can correct me...
What gets annoying is the ACC never being right! Unfortunately, when it senses that the correct temp has been reached, it starts throttling back the fan speed, not just the temp. Not always the best thing. Sometimes you just want the air circulating at the same speed, even though the temp is adjusted warmer or cooler (depending on season). Sometimes, some passengers are in sun while others are in shade. Air circulation can help those in sun without freezing those in shade.I would rather set it and forget it. It gets annoying adjusting often
Unless all the sensors, thermostats, etc. are contained in the Auto Temp control head itself. Don't know this to be true; just sayin'.I find it hard to believe that Jeeps not equipped with ACC still have all the temp sensors and motors installed to regulate and keep a temperature constant. I suppose I could be wrong about that but it wouldnt make sense to put those parts in every jeep, unless it was somehow cheaper to install them in every jeep vs the cost of the parts.
