    Do the HVAC climate control system are the same between diesel and petrol accord, I want to replace diesel head unit screen on my petrol accord?

    Do they interchangeable for this case?

    Thank you.

    If not mistaken the petrol and diesel head unit are not interchangeable. Might be different wiring for both

    I also read somewhere that they're not interchangeable.

    Wow didn't know that! So these 2nd hand units that you see on eBay could a whole load of trouble if it comes from a car that runs on a different fuel to yours?
