Toyota Venza: Air Inlet Damper Control Servo Motor Circuit (B1442/42)

Toyota Venza Service Manual / Heating / Air Conditioning / Air Conditioning System / Air Inlet Damper Control Servo Motor Circuit (B1442/42)

DESCRIPTION

The air inlet control servo motor sends pulse signals to indicate the damper position to the A/C amplifier. The A/C amplifier activates the motor (normal or reverse) based on these signals to move the air inlet mode selection air inlet control damper to any position, which controls the intake air settings (FRESH, FRESH/RECIRCULATION, and RECIRCULATION).

The A/C amplifier communicates with the servo through a communication/driver IC and wiring assembly called the air conditioning harness.

HINT:

Confirm that no mechanical problem is present because this DTC can be output when either a damper link or the damper is mechanically locked.

DTC No.
