switching from manual to digital HVAC controls?

Postby NHrider19 [OP] » Oct 29 2013, 8:43pm

I was wondering if it is possible to switch from a manual HVAC controls to a digital one? i can not find any information about this and from the pictures i have seen the plugs look to be the same. and on the backs of them . they are both labeled the same, using 4 plugs all with the same color codes.

I'm sure it is possible, however, I think there is more different in the system than just the switch panel. I think they use different actuators as well. The air box may even be different.

I thought I had read on here somewhere that the BCM is different on the truck ?!?! May or may not be true. I don't think it's just plug and play.

It's not going to be plug and play, for sure.
