Can I just swap out the climate control module?

I have a 2012 GC Laredo with the "standard" climate control module (no digital read out, etc).

Can I simply buy something like this and just drop it in and it will work?

Quite a bit discussed about this. Do a search on climate controls.

Re: Can I just swap out the climate control module?

You are correct - there are a ton of posts on the subject, but they reference these part numbers:

For US models:

55111916AP (without heated and/or ventilated seats) (Many have used this)
68111109AP (w/heated seats)
68111110AP (w/heated and ventilated seats)

unfortunately, those parts are no longer available and there is no clear part number that will work in a '12 GC.

JustForJeeps has this one, but I am not sure it will work ('11 owners say it won't work in there vehicles):

Jeep Dual Zone Climate Control (HAF) - Mopar # 55111916AQ, # 68111109AQ, # 68111110AP #WK2DualClimateControl

Does anyone know whether that would work in a '12?

Re: Can I just swap out the climate control module?

As the eBay listing is for the 68111109AP (w/heated seats), I would think (as indicated in the previous posts), you should be fine. But, I haven't been following those threads for a few years...

Again, re-read the rather extensive postings from users and from factory engineers regarding your options to make certain.

I was under the impression that all AQ models didn't work at all in the 11/12/13 GCs?

I read all about it .. Gave me headache.. But decided to take the risk, the AQ PART without heated or ventilated seats will not work, display problem, but the one with heated seats work 68111109AQ .. Installed it last week.. Works like a charm on my 2011 GC
