Gah, why did I buy this? JDM Climate Control ...

I just bought this on eBay.

JDM 92-96 Honda Prelude BB1 CLIMATE CONTROL AC AIR VENT - eBay (item 280604530891 end time Jan-13-11 09:18:39 PST)

There are a few threads on PL about this; about only getting the control and not the sensors and the motor.
JDM Climate Control

Now, I have to go find an Acura CL 1st gen to get all the sensors in the junkyard. Any other Acuras have the sensors?

Now, any ideas on how to get the mix motor control from?

I just signed myself up for a lot of trouble!

LOL, M0B5TA. If I fail at finding the sensors, relays, harnesses, motors ... you can have it.

Anyway, that's what I figured. I will try and find a CL and the motors but if I can't, I'm sure there's someone here who would undertake a JDM climate control conversion.

But, the task at hand is crazy ....



Here's a list

Re: Gah, why did I buy this? JDM Climate Control ...

I'll sell u one for cheap Mob5sta pm me

Yeah you gotta find all the sensors..most can be found off of newer Acuras.. There's a full write up on this out there somewhere. You gotta take the whole dash off.. So if u don't feel comfortable with that..get a professional to do it for you..

I still wanna do this to my 5th gen but I don't think there's a write up anywhere

Re: Gah, why did I buy this? JDM Climate Control ...

I was able to have a friend in the UK take out a complete JDM climate control from a JDM bb4 in a UK scrap yard last year. Only cost me $100 shipped from the UK for the whole system. Me FTW!. Especially if you understand how much it costs to import anything from the UK to the states.

I have yet to install it though as im going to do a keyless entry alarm, the climate control, and my EL guages all at the same time. I hate taking things apart twice.

I got mine off a front clip I use to have. I did have all the sensors and everything (except the one on the back) until my ex girlfriends dad decided to get rid of the car parts I had over there the day I broke up with her

Bye bye Jdm hood, fenders, dash, frame

Re: Gah, why did I buy this? JDM Climate Control ...

Ugh...I wanted to get one of these; but now IDK. I wish the Japanese would stop with the "exclusive JDM" stuff...Lol, would it of been so hard to make the cars the SAME for all regions except LHD for the states (and other parts of Europe)?

Re: Gah, why did I buy this? JDM Climate Control ...

From what I read in ogsmakdade's ride thread it is nothing nice getting that installed. He said it took his mechanic over a week to work out all of the bugs. You should think about talking to him about this since he has it in his car.

Re: Gah, why did I buy this? JDM Climate Control ...

Its not so much baller factor of being rare. Its more about no one wants to do it bc its such a collosal PITA to do haha. I wanna do it but have no desire to go thru all that for that lil thing and finding all the sensors is a chore too. plus 9i wanted to color mod mine and idk if u can do that or not haha

Re: Gah, why did I buy this? JDM Climate Control ...

I did the same thing bro, if you can't get the parts, there's always someone out there willing to make the same mistake and just buy the climate control before realizing it's useless.

Finally got it today and it powers on. Now, the long long search for sensors and motors and such begins ...

Also, realized that the temperature is going to be in Celsius.
