No that doesn't! Sorry, he already fixed that problem by rewiring everything, then he could get whatever temperature he wanted, but only out of the defrost. Reason being vacuum wasn't connected to RCC.

Sorry getting back so late, I kept getting an error when trying to login! invalid redirect address or something like that when trying.

so UPDATE: I've gotten all the vents to work which is pretty exciting. there's a sixth hole on the rrc vacuum lines that needed plugged. I'm not sure what it was for when i pulled it out of the car it didn't have anything attached too it which i thought that was how it was supposed to be. I just plugged it up and that solved the issue. Now the new issue i have is it will only blow on the high setting! When i turn the ac off, it automatically goes to defrost mode until the car is turned off. I went to HWY 101 autoparts and they let me try another blower motor resistor and it didn't make a difference so i know that's not it. Am i missing something so small here it will be the death of me?

With EATC the blower motor has a blower module instead of a blower resistor. The blower module allows the EATC to infinitely adjust the blower speed. So did you forget to do the blower module swap?

FYI, defrost is the "default" position when the climate control is off.

Yea sorry that's what I meant. The black metal box with the yellow tubing attached to the side of it (bracketed on the side). Its all there all hooked up and no matter what I try it still just continue to blow out when its completely off. I know the module works I've had 2 tested on and they work it just won't adjust the speed or shut off.

Well, for that you're going to be interested in orange/black wire (the thin one) that runs between the blower module and the RCC module. I'm not sure of the exact control scheme, but if that wire is grounded out or not connected it might force the blower module to default to full-speed operation.

That was it!! I cannot believe it. It was connected at the blower module but at the ICP the wire was still in but it wasn't clipped in!! I watched as I pushed it on and it would push it out a little. It didn't look like it at a blank stare because its taped up to the very end. I am still in shock that I didn't catch that.

I am now happy to say I have a full functioning eatc in my car!

Was it worth the work? Hell no!

Is it worth it to have? Hell yes! Lol

Thanks to everyone for your help wouldn't have got it if it wasn't for you guys.

Congratulations! Glad you figured it out! Lots of work to get it installed, and hopefully less work while you're driving!
