Thumbs up Changing Standard Heater Controls

I'm new to this forum, its great that someone has set this up for the commander. I have owned mine for 6 months and think its great.

I have a base model 06 and was wondering if anyone had already changed the simple heater controls to the full auto system in the Limited etc.

I believe the thermostat and motor driver is housed in the controls, so surely it should just plug in and work.

Does anyone think I need to get the Starscan program changed is this controlled by the Can-network.

I started a thread on this a while back. From what I can tell (and I am not a technician) if you have the 2006 with the Leather/Sunroof package, you should already have most of the sensors (round thing on the top of dash, center by the window).

From looking at the parts and service manual. I "think" you only need the following:

Control, Auto Temp Control - [HAF] Fahrenheight - 55111010AD
Module, Power Blower Motor - [HAF] - 4885482AC

I suspect you will also need the starscan to activate and calibrate the system. The parts are somewhere around $200 new. I never got around to actually trying this though.

I am still interested if this actually works, but just have not had the time to play, and access to the starscan will be difficult as the few inquiries I made to the dealership on if this was possible turned out to be dead ends. They apparently do not like when we tinker with our vehicles.

I originally thought the dual zone climate control was a different unit altogether but xkjohn is right. There does seem to be some different parts used on XK's built before 6-05-06 and after. In the 2007 model the wire harness and blower module are different part #'s.

Thank You John for posting the part #'s. Now that I see the unit itself is the same for both, I definitely have to add this to my mod list.

The 2006 part #'s are as xkjohn posted
Control, Auto Temp Control - [HAF] Fahrenheight - 55111010AD
Module, Power Blower Motor - [HAF] - 4885482AC

The 2007 part #'s are
Wiring for A/C heater assembly [HAF] - 5143 106AA
Blower module [HAF] - 2006 - 4885482AC, 2007 - 179985AA
Auto temp control [HAF] Fahrenheit - 55111010AJ [HAF] Celsius - 55111011AJ

Just so I'm clear, these would be the parts to give us the dual zone climate control?

According to the parts dpt the code for dual climate control is HAF and the only part #'s of the whole unit that are different from the HAA to the HAF are the ones above. There's one more part # needed for a blower module cover. Surprising to me, the HVAC units share the housings, etc.

So what would this mod do? Give you the ability to set a temperature and set it to auto, but no dual controls? Not knocking, just trying to figure out exactly what it would do.

I would imagine if all parts are changed to the HAF then it would be dual zone. I'd have to see the actual parts drawings and description in the service manual.

The service manual implies that you need starscan to calibrate the auto temp control. I also believe you need to have the "U" package (I'm not 100% sure on the letter, but it was the premium package which included the leather and sunroof) for 2006 which contains the automatic headlights and the sensor on the top of the dash which is also used by the system.

Step on the ant...

Hey, Red Commander, how about stepping on the ant. I'm worried it's going to get into my hard drive or attact other bugs.
