    Climate Control

    Ok so here's an interesting question. We all know that camaros (isn't it weird that 'camaro' gets underlined as incorrect by the spell checker?) don't come with climate control. Well maybe they do, but at least I've never seen it. So my question is: can you give your camaro climate control with an a/c control panel swap? Or is that also controlled by other redundant systems? I only ask because I have a '98 Blazer with climate control and it'd be nice if I could make the switch.

    they have climate control, it's called the air conditioner and heater. which control the climate of the car. I dunno what you're trying to ask. haha

    I was thinking the same thing when I was reading his post. I'm guessing he means dual for pass/driver and that would be a whole bunch of modding.

    you can always use my method, turn the knob to AC, turn the other knob to the left or right, and then select your fan speed. that's how I do it at least. haha, I'm just bustin your balls man.

    I always found it weird that Camaro comes up as an error on spell check...my car has climate control, I roll up the windows when its cold and let them down when its warm and bonus take off the T's...LOL

    Gentlemen, it's his 3rd post, let's welcome him a little better than this! He's probably referring to today's newest cars with all the lastest gizmos...did I say gizmos? I'm gettin' so old..that yes refer to individual settings, as well as setting a actual temp. on the screen [dial] and it adjust the car's temp. to your liking. Just like you're in your living room I guess.

    Ok ok let me clear up the confusion here. What we have in our cars right now is your standard heat and a/c(so nice for some of you to clear that up for me.......that was joke). The climate control that I'm referring to is the AUTOMATED feature that some GM vehicles have as an option. It looks similar to the control panel we have, except the fan and vent location knobs have an 'auto' setting. The temperature control also has degree increments on it. So for example, you set the fan and vent to 'auto', and then you select the temperature knob to a temperature that you always want the car to maintain. So say you set it to 70 degrees....the climate control will then either run the heat or a/c depending on what the ambient temperature of the car is at that time.
    My 98 Blazer has it. It's an option that probably comes with the LT package. Google a picture image of it if you're still confused.

    Here's a photo of the panel screen. This isn't exactly like the one I have, but you get the point with those 'auto' setting I'm referring to.

    Here's the exact picture from a blazer/jimmy. I'd like to think that the one from the camaro and the blazer are of the same dimensions. So would swapping them work?

    That's the thing though. I'd hate to rip apart the dash on both vehicles just to find that it doesn't work. If no one knows, I'll probably eventually try it, but I'll have to wait until the summer to make sure both heat and a/c kick in.

    my mom had a 07 Caddy CTS with a crazy climate control. it's so confusing to use. I like the AC in my car better actually. way more simple and easy to use. but I guess that one pic you put up is fairly simple looking. I dunno if it would be worth the work tho.

    Ok, I'm a GM Service Technician, and I can answer your question.

    Swapping the control panel will not work.
    The control panel tells the Body Control Module (BCM) what to do. So, unless you have the programmed BCM, it won't work. You'd also need a temp. sensor to tell the BCM what the temp. in the car is.

    Well you'd have to install a power inverter. LOL
