Default Converting manual AC to climate system

Does anyone know what is involved with this? I have a 2001 solara and
would like to run the ac pump less at night. The lowest setting is
too cold sometimes. All I want to do is cut the humidity.

Does anyone have experiance with this conversion?


Thx

Hahahhha.. Oh you are NUTS! The dial with the red-to-blue
scale.... try turning it more toward the red and run the system in
RECIRC. Duh.

It just seems like this should be easy to do. Seems like all you
should have to do is install a manual thermostat on a knob that is
hooked to the a/c switch. But I cannot find anything like that.

Let me understand. The air is too cold? You want it warmer? There is a
thermostat built into the system that is sensing the temp of the
evaporator but it isn't something that is readily adjustable nor should
it be. You could kill the system if you got it too cold. Just adjust the
air mixture using the interior thermostat that you already have. This is
not brain surgery.

Hahahhaha That you think such a conversion should be so simple
suggests you do not know the complexity of the project. Do not apply
a Home Depot mentality to your car.
