Toyota 4Runner: Air Mix Damper Control Servo Motor Circuit (Driver Side) (B1446/46)

DESCRIPTION

The damper servo sub-assembly (driver side air mix damper servo) sends pulse signals to inform the No. 1 air conditioning amplifier assembly of the damper position. The No. 1 air conditioning amplifier assembly activates the motor (normal or reverse) based on the signals to move the air mix damper (for driver side) to any position. As a result, the air mix damper (for driver side) varies the mixture of hot air from the heater core and cold air from the evaporator so that the temperature of the air blowing toward the front passenger side is as requested.

HINT:

Confirm that no mechanical problem is present because this trouble code may be stored when either a damper link or damper is mechanically locked.
