My vehicle is a 2000 9-3 base model that has manual climate control (the AC/Heat panel with the knobs). I know someone with a wrecked 1999 9-3 SE. I have pulled the ACC panel from it and would like to install the Automatic Climate Control (ACC) system in my vehicle. It should be compatible, correct? What components would I need to pull for the installation to work? I've done a little research and I am guessing I woul need the solar sensor, the Cabin Temp Sensor fan from the dash and the ACC fan speed controller. Is there anything else? The 1999 owner's manual for the SE mentions a couple of other sensors that the ACC system relieson, e.g. the outside air temp sensor. Does my 2000 9-3 already have these other sensors in place? Isn't this how the SID determines the temp? Anyway, I'd appreciate some insight from anyone who knows what I need to do here. Do I need to pull anything other than: 1) ACC control panel 2) Cabin Temp sensor 3) Solar sensor on dash 4) ACC fan speed controller Thanks, Mark
