they're more "rounded' than anything.
Easier than saying "not as square as the original buttons" EATC
Well, words have meaning, and those buttons are far from being "round". A better description would've been something like "non-SHO" ETAC unit. That would've been a MUCH more accurate description.
It was an excellent writeup though, that's for sure. It's always nice to see that we have options with replacing OE SHO stuff with parts from other models.
Also - if you do get a round button EATC with incorrectly labeled buttons, you can use the buttons out of other round button EATCs to make it right. I believe the Continental EATCs have the correct button labeling. For mine, the EATC came out of a Grand Marquis, but one of the buttons came out of an Explorer to make it correct.
So what do you do when the only thing that works is the fan speed control
Does anyone have pin outs for the 16 wires?
So you attempted the mod and now only the fan control works? Check the solder points.
They're all "apart"
Not sure what the issue is. I must have a vacuum line off, so that's why it didn't switch from defrost (did that with the HB EATC that was in the car before)...maybe the buttons are working, but the VFD is not...If I knew which wire in the ribbon cable powered that I could track it down.
Followed directions to the t and it worked GREAT!!!!!!!!!!! I got mine out of a 96 grand marque.
I completed this mod a few weeks ago. Did a test fit in my 91 and it worked great. Took me a little longer to complete than I would have liked. Ended up needing more than one round button unit to make it work. Luckily I have a pretty good supply to choose from at work. I was even able to find a green display to match my other dash lights.
