Re: New climate control, looks good, but ......
Guys, had a look at the Ford Manual wiring diags for EA/EB/EBII and ED.
The wiring for the Auto Climate Control between EA, EB, EBII and ED is all the same, including wires to each pin on all connectors, except for one difference....
In the EA/EB/EBII models the aircon is controlled by the Auto Climate Control module whereas in the ED the aircon is controlled by the EECIV.
In short, the ED version Auto Climate Control module cannot be used in a EA/EB/EBII if you want the aircon to work.
BTW, the same is true for the regular Climate Controller (the one with the levers) where the ED unit is not compatible with EA/EB/EBII in the aircon switching department.
All functions like fan speed control, flaps control, etc is identical between all models.
Dellboy999.... Looks like that ED module is faulty, but, if it wasn't then it would not run your aircon anyway.
As suggested above, you need an EBII unit (they had black buttons ?).
The XR family ---->
Muzza: a XR8 AU seriesIII...bog standard :)
TBH: (the better half) drives an ED XR6 wagon (Mock Dev 4 160rwkw, JMM extractors, 4 electric windows, Ghia door panels in XR trim, rear head & arm rests in XR trim, Momo s/wheel with Cruise, EL thermos, EBGT wheels, etc) things to come soon = EECV upgrade.
