Getting even closer to the set temp, it finally directs the air to the dash vents but the air mix door is opened a little more. Therefore, there is no way to get full hot or warm air from the dash vents. It'* lukewarm at that point. With the manual controls, you can have full blast hot to the vents or even bi-level whenever you want.

From what I understand though, 96 (?) and up ECC'* have a mode selection for the different vents. Neither my 90 nor the 93 have this ablity.
That sucks. *loves his manual cc*

What'* nice about the ECC, is it also has inputs for the engine temp, so it won't turn on the heat, until the car has warmed up enough. Thus, as early as possible, warm air is turned on, and you don't get that horrible "early mourning cold air." Plus the ECC displays the exterior temp.. although it'* never right, I don't care.. still cool ****.

Less problems; yes. However after 16 years, not a single problem has arisen from having ECC. Hell, nothing has ever needed replacing in the whole A/C/Heating plethora of ****.

Well except for the fact that it tells you the outside temp, I may look at seeing what is involved in converting to MANUAL *****. I hate the fact that you can't blow the air out the center vents, I mean what is the point with those air fresheners that go on the vents if no air is gonna come out of it, LMFAO.



Yes the lights are still red on the auto climate controls.
