Description and Operation

 Description

1. Heater unit includes mode control actuator and temperature control actuator.

2. Temperature control actuator is located at the heater unit. It regulates the temperature by the procedure as follows. Signal from control unit adjusts position of temperature door by operating temperature switch and then temperature will be regulated by the hot/cold air ratio decided by position of temperature door.

Repair procedures

Inspection

1. Ignition "OFF".

2. Disconnect the connector of temperature control actuator.

3. Verify that the temperature control actuator operates to the hot position when connecting 12V to the terminal 3 and grounding terminal 4.

Verify that the temperature control actuator operates to the cool position when connecting in the reverse.
