I looked in the Haynes manual and there is a difference with the way the heating system deals with the two units. There are two different blower motor options. The stock system just uses a blower motor resistor where as the ATC uses a power module instead of a conventional resistor. There is also a temperature sensor that needs to be added behind the right dash bezel where it says "Dodge" or "Chrysler." So far, that is the only info I could find. If anyone has done this or knows more on the subject I am very interested too as I want to swap out for the ATC.Originally posted by david601:
Does anyone know if you can swap the normal dial controls for heat/air with a digital unit bt simply swapping, or is there more involved with the ECU and such??

Hey, I swapped mine out for the digital ATC and had no problem. The ATC has its own ECU. The ECU in the ATC connects to the BOV which is routed through the MTA and the BET and ends up at the DER, which as you know goes from the RET to the ARD. So, obviously it doesnt need to wire up to the stock ECU and is a very simple swap.
I thought it was spelled out rather decent (the part about BIG JOB).242 said:
One guy says EASY and seems to love acronyms, and the other guy says BIG JOB and doesn't elaborate much, so basically, we got 0 info to go on. What else is new
Yes I do.242 said:#1) you have a second generation Intrepid
No I'm not.
#2) you are not considering swapping the temp. control units
No I don't as I never was trying to tell anybody if it was an easy job or if it was a pain in the ass. I was making fun of Flaming93Trepi because he was being a wiseass.
#3) see my point?
Well, like I said before, I thought it was clearly spelled out. It doesn't sound like an easy project. Here is why I think it was clearly spelled out.
#4) yeah I'd like more info about why this is a big job, or even to the contrary, why it is so easy, and I would not like a lot of words from guys with big attitudes and small brains
#5) just friendly, helpful advice, shouldn't be hard
