Toyota Venza: Air Mix Damper Control Servo Motor Circuit (Passenger Side) (B1441/41)

Toyota Venza Service Manual / Heating / Air Conditioning / Air Conditioning System / Air Mix Damper Control Servo Motor Circuit (Passenger Side) (B1441/41)

DESCRIPTION

The air mix 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 mix damper (front passenger side) to any position. As a result, the amount of air passing through the heater core after passing through the evaporator is adjusted, and the temperature of the air blowing toward the passenger side is controlled.

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.

INSPECT AIR MIX CONTROL SERVO MOTOR

(a) Replace the air mix control servo motor (See page ).


HINT:

Since the servo motor cannot be inspected while it is removed from the vehicle, replace the servo motor with a new or a known good one and check that the condition returns to normal.

(b) Check for the DTC.
