2018 Ford PIU
Im currently driving a 2018 PIU that has the 4.2 inch module. Whilst doing some work on it I was told I would need to swap out the Temperature Control Module in order for the new face plate to work. My Explorer has the manual controls and I will need the automatic control module that also supports rear ac. Looking at fords OEM website for this vehicle Im seeing it comes in a couple different flavors and Im looking for a little bit of guidance. Im primarily just trying to get one that supports the 8 inch screen and the rear ac which I believe is CCM138.
