    Default Another Climate Control Issue. Help please....

    Apart from my "Hello, I am new" post, this is my first official post.

    So, I have a pre-facelift Vectra C CDX with full Climate Control. Here's the thing. The fan control rotary switch began to die. When you turned it, it would change the fan speed in any order 7-2-3-6-4-1-5-0 and that sort of thing. It would operate erratically, and from the reading I did online, the whole panel needed to be replaced.

    So off I went to ebay, discovered that they were cheaper if purchased from the UK, and imported one. The one that I received has a silver bezel on the large rotary dial, but that's the only difference I can see. I have since discovered that this means it comes out of a facelift car. The part number has one digit different as well, but the look identical. On opening both, the circuit boards are identical too.

    I popped in the replacement part, and everything seemed ok. Fan control works properly, all the lights on the panel come on and off. The aircon appears to come and off, and the message in the display consol confirms this.

    Except, the aircon does not actually come on any more with the new panel installed. So I took the new part out, and replaced it with the dodgy unit. And bingo. The aircon works 100% again.

    Were the post-facelift cars so different that even the climate control panels changed? Anybody had a similar issue? Have I just wasted $100 on a part?

    Any thoughts would be most welcome.

    Hi Mate

    well i can let you know in about 1 week.. i have a prefacelift vectra, that i will be replacing a prefacelift ECC module with another prefacelift ECC module. that hopefully should work i my car, but remember most modules are coded to match your car.. the module im getting is "pre coded, and changed to match my car" else i have to get to the dealers to recode it again.

    But if i remember correct, then there is small wiring change between prefacelift and facelift (yes you got a facelift module).

    have you pressed the centre button & made sure there is a tick for air conditioning , it could be switched off in the new unit , although it would probably say ECO in the display if this was the case .
