Want to add automatic climate control

I have a Laredo with the manual climate control. I was wondering if just changing the dash control unit would work, or is there more too it than just the controls?

Re: Want to add automatic climate control

on the wk you would have to switch out the complete front harness plus all the modules. I would guess its the same with the 2011

Re: Want to add automatic climate control

With all the problems these systems have, I wouldn't be so fast to covet thy neighbor's controls! I quickly quit using the 'auto' settings in my WJ because it never seemed to make up its mind about fan speed.

Re: Want to add automatic climate control

Both good points. I would probably constantly over-ride the auto part anyways. Im a control freak.

I never touch it. It is really accurate. I needed this cause we are always fighting with my wife about the temperature. Now we are both happy

I do not know about installing one.... I would just trade the car in or live with it. That is why I got the overland since there are only few things I can add.
