LCI Climate control AC issues
So I'm still having issues with my CIC retrofit.... it's truly the gift that keeps on giving.
Retrofitted the LCI climate controls and as per forum instructions split wire 21 out of the 26 connector and connected it to the power/ground that runs into the unit. The AC compressor will not turn on and it blows HOT. I've checked and double checked and tipple checked the wiring. Everything else works as it should.
Note, the kit I got gave me a euro spec climate control or at least it came from Europe and is in Celsius as opposed to freedom units. Would that cause an issue or is it just different numbers on the front?
Also fun fact 07 M5's with HD radio don't have radio wires behind the CCC system so I need to find a way to get a radio signal I'm assuming from the back to the front. While taking apart the center console to retrofit the new controller I found a black connector which resembled what should plug into the back of the CIC for am/fm. Does anyone know what that wire is? or do I need do get a custom cable of some sort and run it from the trunk?
I can live without radio for a bit with the aux in and spotify. I can't cope with summer heat and no AC.
