AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM(for Manual Air Conditioning System), Diagnostic DTC:B1441/41

DTC Code DTC Name
B1441/41 Air Mix Damper Control Servo Motor Circuit

DESCRIPTION

The air mix damper servo sub-assembly sends pulse signals to inform the air conditioning amplifier assembly of the damper position. The air conditioning amplifier assembly activates the motor (normal or reverse) based on the signals to move the air mix damper to any position. As a result, the air mix damper 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 side is as requested.

Tech Tips

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

DTC Code DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
B1441/41 The air mix damper position does not change even if the air conditioning amplifier assembly operates the air mix damper servo motor.
