AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:B1443/43

DTC Code DTC Name
B1443/43 Air Outlet Damper Control Servo Motor Circuit

DESCRIPTION

The air outlet control servo motor sends pulse signals to indicate the damper position to the A/C amplifier. The A/C amplifier activates the motor (normal or reverse) based on these signals to move the mode damper to any position, which controls the air outlet switching.

The A/C amplifier communicates with the servo through a communication/driver IC and wiring assembly called the air conditioning harness.

Tech Tips

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

DTC No. DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
B1443/43 Air outlet damper position sensor value does not change even if A/C amplifier operates air outlet control servo motor
  • Air outlet control servo motor

  • Air conditioning harness

  • A/C amplifier

  3. INSPECT AIR OUTLET CONTROL SERVO MOTOR


    1. Replace the air outlet control servo motor Click here.

      Tech Tips

      Since the servo motor cannot be inspected while it is removed from the vehicle, replace the servo motor with a new or a known good one and check that the condition returns to normal.

    2. Check for the DTC.
