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

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

DESCRIPTION

The No. 1 air conditioning radiator damper servo sub-assembly (front side air mix) sends pulse signals to indicate the damper position to the air conditioning amplifier assembly. The air conditioning amplifier assembly activates the motor (normal or reverse) based on these signals to move the No. 1 air conditioning radiator damper servo sub-assembly (front side air mix) to the appropriate position. This adjusts the amount of air passing through the heater core after passing the evaporator and controls the temperature of the output air.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Note


  • When DTC B1441/41, B1442/42 and B1443/43 are output at same time, the No. 1 air conditioning radiator damper servo sub-assembly is malfunctioning.

  • When the servo motor or air conditioning amplifier assembly is replaced, be sure to perform servo motor initialization.

Tech Tips

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

PROCEDURE


  1. READ VALUE USING GTS (AIR MIX SERVO TARG PULSE[D], AIR MIX SERVO ACTUAL PULSE[D])


    1. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the engine switch on (IG).

    3. Turn the GTS on.

    4. Operate the front passenger side temperature adjustment switch.

    5. Enter the following menus: Body Electrical / Air Conditioner / Data List.

    6. Check the value(s) by referring to the table below.

      MAX. HOT: 347 (pulse)


      • Displayed between 255 and 347 pulse

      • No. 1 air conditioning radiator damper servo sub-assembly (front side air mix) system malfunction

      Air Mix Servo Actual Pulse(D) No. 1 air conditioning radiator damper servo sub-assembly (front side air mix) actual pulse

      Min.: 128

      Max.: 383

      MAX. COLD: 255 (pulse)

      MAX. HOT: 347 (pulse)


      • Displayed between 255 and 347 pulse

      • No. 1 air conditioning radiator damper servo sub-assembly (front side air mix) system malfunction
