Default F Sport - rear ac controls

I am looking to trade in my 07 GS350 & would like an F sport, but would really like to have the rear ac controls. Anyone care to hazard a guess that if I purchased the controller would it just plug into the existing wiring harness?

Thanks,

Steve

Not quite sure how it all works, but it would seem that if you have rear A/C controls, then that is 3 zone climate. Just plugging in controls to a car with 2 zone climate won't work. Or if it does, then you're rear passengers are controlling the driver and passenger side temps, front and back.

don't think that will work....maybe you can special order an F-Sport with Lux Pckg. dseag2 is a member on CL and he has one... maybe he can give you more insight.

Yes, I have the rear A/C controls as part of the Luxury package on my F Sport. You can actually turn off rear A/C via a button on the A/C controls when you have no rear passengers and turn it on if you do. It's pretty cool (no pun intended). Sorry, don't know anything about wiring.

dseag, did you have to special order your vehicle?

I thought in your purchase thread you said you didn't have the controls on the rear center console?

I think the pun was intended.

I ordered it for colors/equipment I wanted. I ordered the most comprehensive package that comes with the F Sport. There are no rear a/c controls as such. There are vents behind the console that can be opened or closed. They can also be turned off altogether from a button in the front HVAC system if no one is riding in the back. No actual temp controls for the riders. I don't think that Luxury Package is available with the F Sport.

So basically you have the same options that all of us F-Sport owners have....

My mistake, I suppose. I wasn't trying to misrepesent my option packages. With that said, I have no idea what options you or the other F-Sport owners have, but when you go into build an F-Sport you are given the choices of two packages. I chose the more comprehensive of the two, and I have Mark Levinson, which some owners don't have.

Anyway, thanks for setting me straight, as you do so often with everyone in this forum.
