AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM (for Manual Air Conditioning System), Diagnostic DTC:B1442/42

DTC Code DTC Name
B1442/42 Air Inlet Damper Control Servo Motor Circuit

DESCRIPTION

The air inlet 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 inlet damper to any position, which controls the intake air settings (fresh, fresh/recirculation and recirculation).

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
B1442/42 The air inlet damper position does not change even if the air conditioning amplifier assembly operates the air inlet damper servo motor.
  • Air inlet damper servo sub-assembly
