    Default Dual climate

    Looking for some help regarding Climate control panels..
    My mates 52 plate Gsi has a faulty climate panel (centre button is knackered)
    He has bought another panel which looks identical to the one he has in his car.
    We have swapped the panels over and the new unit does not function at all.
    He tells me the new unit came from a 54 plate signum so its possibly from a full canbus car (his is half canbus). Both panels look identical, part number etc is same. Im assuming that its needs some kind of coding to enable it to work or will it never work if its from a full canbus car....

    Thanks

    dont think halfcan and fullcan panels are interchangeable, think i've proved this with some i've had... check the idents (two letters) between the panels

    You are correct Dean , they will not work. Is it just the centre button if so it could be repaired by someone like myself who is handy with a soldering iron.

    Cheers for the replies chaps. I've checked with him and looked at the eBay advert for the panel and can see scroll wheels in one of the pics so must be full can car so it's no good lol. My dad's an electronics engineer by trade so should be able swap the centre button over pretty easy. I've pulled both units apart and the pcb looks the same. So do I chance it and swap the centre button or sell it on and get another unit from a half can car. Anyone swapped the buttons before in a ecc unit

    Thanks

    I have repaired units previously just by reflowing the solder , if you have heat gun solder station it is straight forward

    don't know why the climate panels would be different if the part number is the same .
    my 52 plate elite has the same dodgy button , so I bought a second hand panel from a breaker which worked fine for a little while , then sometimes I would start the car & there would be no climate at all , panel totally dead , then next time it would be ok .
    I am still considering swapping the centre buttons from one to the other .

    The buttons do look the same so its just a case of swapping the buttons over ? I have a decent adjustable temp LCD soldering station and doesn't look too difficult
