All I know is that a 98-99 EATC would not work with the harness of a 96-97 EATC because the plugs are different.

But I think you would have to redo some wiring yourself anyways since you want to go with the analog setup. I think others will chime in, but in case they don't, post a picture of the back of your EATC and I can tell you if the plugs are the same, or at least which ones are missing.

#EDIT
I just looked at some pictures and it looks like the plugs may be right, but the harness is missing a few wires.

No. It is not a direct swap. You need to modify the climate control system behind the dash. The electronic systems has different hardware and sensors controlling the climate control that isn't there on the manual controls. There is a write-up in the Topic Finder where someone swapped manual controls to electronic controls in an '05 if you want to see what's involved.
