Hey guys, just joined today, great site.

I have noticed a few BA colour screen ICC's on ebay lately with climate control, can anyone tell me if i can change my standard ICC in my BA MKII XR8 to a colour ICC w/- climate control by buying one of these units andd plugging it in or are there alot of axtra wiring and sensors to go with it.

cheers

Climate control is a fairly big job. You need a sunload sensor, ambient air temp sensor and new dash and door looms to suit. Few other bits and pieces too - its definately not a plug and play proposition.

Yep, it's a fairly involved operation, although I believe Lukeyson has managed to do the complete conversion, albeit at considerable effort.

Easiest thing to do is the upgrade your ICC to the premo sound ICC, comes with the colour TFT screen but still manual HVAC controls. That's pretty much plug and play, will just need Ford to match up your car with it.
