Trip computer is tied to the airconditioning?
Hello all, I am new here. I'm planning to fit a computer into my car, so I've been reading up on some material on this forum.
Eventually I want to replace my trip computer with a mini-itx computer with its own lcd. I haven't gotten too far in figuring how to do that, but I do have question which bugs me and I can't find an answer to it yet.
I have a first generation Acura MDX , and it looks like the trip computer unit has buttons built on it which control the air conditioning and clock.
See here for a picture of the unit:
If I were to remove the trip computer and use the mini-itx, how do I control the air conditioning?
It could be that the wiring is separate from the trip computer computer (that is, I can just solder each wire onto my own buttons on the new lcd plate screen or something), but I"m not sure if that's the case... What would I do if it's tied to the trip computer?
