I contacted Just for Jeeps, they were unsure and asked me to send them my vin so they can check, but I haven't gotten around to it yet... I'll post up when I do and let you know what they say...

Re: How to add Auto HVAC to your WK2!

Ordered the 68111109AQ HVAC controls from Just for Jeeps, but looks like I got the AP? Has heated and cooled seats controls, I have neither, but planned on finding a way of adding heated seats and wiring them to the HVAC.

Screw locations were different than the one shown on Just for Jeeps, but there were mouting holes there for them.
As you can see in the pics, temperature appeared in celcius too!
Install couldnt have been easier, all controls seem to work fine, except of course for the heated/cooled seats. That will be my next project.

Thanks OP for making this post!

Re: How to add Auto HVAC to your WK2!

I finally did this mod. Unfortunately it got too dark and cold to take some pictures. I will try to post some tomorrow.

I must say I can not get over how easy this was. You would think Chrysler would hvae offered this as a standard option. Btw I was able to score the unit on eBay for 65 bucks. It was a used unit but came in perfect. Wife was giving me a hard time about it until she saw it installed LOL. Now I just have to wait for the dealer to call me to get my Katzkin installed.

Once again thank you all. I may not have been able to get a sport toy car but thanks to you all I am able to at least get my mod fix lol

Re: How to add Auto HVAC to your WK2!

Heads up guys. I just got a call from the dealer. My Katzkin seats are done. Be aware though, if you do the Auto Climate control and for some reason you have to remove the seats (katzkin install for example) When they put everything together it will cause for codes to pop up

My ABS and Airbag light came on. dealer said it has to do when the system resets it throws the codes up since the Auto Climate is not originally part of the system. I have to take back the original manual climate control back with me so they can put it back in to reset the codes.


After that I can reinstall the auto myself. Hopefully it doesn't make any codes come out again. Will keep you all posted.
