Wanting to retrofit auto climate control
Hi all, I'm new here, but got a question as the title suggests. My wife owns an r52 cooper S, which has the manual AC setup at the moment. What we want to do is add the auto climate control to it instead. I've had a quick search, but not seen much info about doing it other than it's a relatively big job.
I've got a full heater assembly, heater assembly wiring loom, all actuators, sensors, control panel, etc, but when plugging the heater loom's two plugs into the car's main dash loom I get no power to any of it even though I've coded it in with NCS expert.
The few results I have found suggest rewiring is involved, but that seems to be for those who didn't even have aircon to start with, whereas my wife's car does. I also found the genuine BMW retrofitting instructions on PDF, but again that's adding it to a car which didn't have aircon to begin with.
Does anyone know exactly what else is different between cars with the basic AC setup and cars with the auto AC setup so I can try to replicate the differences? Any tips will be appreciated.
