Default Re: Anyone tried 'Drive Smart'? Converts Car AC to Auto Climate Control

The AC anti-freeze switch behid the dash board (the one that makes a tak tak sound when it switches the Compressor Off and on) in my 2004 Scorpio is not working.
I have ordered this directly from the company. I will route the 2 cables which go to the antifreeze compressor cutout swich through this device.
I will post a review here once this is installed.

Default Re: Anyone tried 'Drive Smart'? Converts Car AC to Auto Climate Control

I have ordered the device today.
I was thinking of replacing the OEM fitted Anti-Freeze Thermostat switch with this.
Here is the picture of the OEM AC Antifreeze switch which is installed behind the dashboard.
This switch is like a thermostat and cuts off compressor when temp goes too low. It has a silver probe which goes into the Cooling coil compartment through a hole.
This switch has 2 male pins either side of the red screw. I was planning to remove the 2 female cables attached to these male pins and connect these to the green and yellow terminals of the device.
I spoke to the manufacturer Mr Arun of Krrishtech. He told me that the device is not capable of handling high currents. It should be installed before the AC Relay where the current is low. After the relay the current may be high .
I am not sure if this Original Antifreeze switch lies before the AC relay or after .
Will the current passing through this switch low enough for this device to handle ?
Anybody has any idea ?
