aight, my car came with the automatic climate control, and i am tired of all the s*** and proplems they cause when you try to do anything aftermarket.

so here is my question, what do i need to do to get rid of the digital gauges, and swap them with a regular set of rotary AC knobs? i just want to replace the entire factory stereo and digital gauges with a new factory radio and rotary knog gauges... can anyone help me out here?

thanks in advance.

Wow no replies that is odd. Well I have never pulled a digi out but I think it would be the same because the function on the knobs is all in the knobs so it should be the same on the digital. It should swap.

Do you have a gen III? if you do, I'll sell you my analog stereo (WITHOUT the actual climate control knobs - still kinda need them) for really cheap. I would just get an analog climate control/stereo setup, take out the digital one, and see if the plugs match up.

AFAIK the climate control to manual a/c adjustments is not a plug and play operation - same deal with going from manual to climate control.... Brad(the_spy_guy) is probably who you would want to talk to about this, he seems to be the most knowledgeable about this from what I've seen.

thanks for the help guys, i think i am gonna ask a service technician at a dealership and see what they say(if they even know anything at all... i doubt they have ever encountered this). but thanks for the help, and im gonna see if i cant get brad over here to help out. hopefully i can switch around some harnesses or whatever and be done with it.

and silvapain, i have a gen 4. but thanks for the offer.
