#1) you have a second generation Intrepid
Yes I do.
#2) you are not considering swapping the temp. control units
No I'm not.
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.
#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
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.
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.
it also needs a new 'body controller' it is the thing that conrolls the ATC(temp controls) OTIS (overhead console) and remote door locks. if you have any or all of those, you have the right body controller for the ATC. otherwise you need to upgade it.
This would be a big job, not only must you change all that was mentioned you must now wire the digital ATC unit to the computer.As the wire harness is built into the Instrument panel harness. big job.
I guess the only thing that isn't spelled out is if someone wanted to go through the trouble of wiring the ATC unit to the computer, how would one do this, if it's even possible.
In that case, if that's all you wanted, than why didn't you just simply ask for a wire diagram?
Now as far as what Flaming93Trepi said, it sounds like a bunch of bullshit.
