'98 Slider HVAC AC Control
I have a '98 TJ with air conditioning, which has the "slider" style HVAC controls. I've noticed that my HVAC "options" are:
- System Off
- A/C + Outside Air + Upper Vents
- A/C + Recirculate + Upper Vents
- Outside Air + Upper Vents
- Outside Air + Lower Vents
- A/C + Upper Vents + Windshield Vent
- A/C + Windshield Vent
My question is: Is there a way (or a common mod) to put the A/C on a separate switch?
For instance, I'd like to blow hot air out the windshield vent (to melt snow/ice). Right now, I believe A/C is always on if air is coming out the windshield vent. Another option might be to recirculate, but NOT run A/C (you're on a dusty road, etc). Or run A/C through the lower vents if you've got hot feet!
Does this make sense, or am I not understanding the controls properly? Thanks!
