Adding a a/c button to have a/c on feet and defrost.

So the other day I wanted to run a/c on my feet while I was towing my camper because the floor was getting hot. Plus I like having cool feet anyway. On the 08+ trucks they have a button so you can do that. My guess is it’s pretty easy to add one but would love to find a whole panel to fit in its place. Does anyone know if the mustangs or f150’s or rangers had that? @410customs.

Clearest pic I could find, without going outside to get one. Lol
But it's technically on the heater side, but I don't think it kills a.c.

Re: Adding a a/c button to have a/c on feet and defrost.

That's what mine looks like. As soon as I come off of a/c the compressor turns off. Except on defrost the compressor runs.

How about defrost/floor with the temp to cold? Compressor should still run, shouldn't it?

Re: Adding a a/c button to have a/c on feet and defrost.

I have been considering making something using vaccum valves so I can have ac on floor and vent cause the obs dont have that as an option. I was looking at the 2000 panels and wondering if I can replace the electrical switch with the cable control from my old control head and then add a over ride button for the ac.

Don't think it does.
"Should be" and "do" are different things. As I said, it's on the heater side.

You can do the digital climate control swap...
