Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: Blower motor

Description

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

Component Parts

Fan speed control system components are: • Front air control

• A/C LAN system (PBR built-in mode door motor, air mix door motors and intake door motor)

• In-vehicle sensor

• Ambient sensor

• Sunload sensor

• Intake sensor

• Fan control amp.

System Operation

Automatic Mode


Automatic Mode

In the automatic mode, the blower motor speed is calculated by the front air control based on the input from the PBR, in-vehicle sensor, sunload sensor, intake sensor and ambient sensor.

When the air flow is increased, the duty ratio of the blower fan motor’s drive signal is changed at 8%/sec. to prevent a sudden increase in air flow.

In addition to manual air flow control and the usual automatic air flow control, starting air flow control, low water temperature starting control and high passenger compartment temperature starting control are available.

Starting Fan Speed Control

Start up from COLD SOAK Condition (Automatic mode) In a cold start up condition where the engine coolant temperature is below 56В°C (133В°F), the blower will not operate for a short period of time (up to 150 seconds). The exact start delay time varies depending on the ambient and engine coolant temperature.

In the most extreme case (very low ambient) the blower starting delay will be 150 seconds as described above. After this delay, the blower will operate at low speed until the engine coolant temperature rises above 56В°C (133В°F), at which time the blower speed will increase to the objective speed.

Start up from usual or HOT SOAK Condition (Automatic mode)

The blower will begin operation momentarily after the AUTO switch is pressed. The blower speed will gradually rise to the objective speed over a time period of 3 seconds or less (actual time depends on the objective blower speed).

Blower Speed Compensation

Sunload

When the in-vehicle temperature and the set temperature are very close, the blower will be operating at low speed. The low speed will vary depending on the sunload. During conditions of low or no sunload, the blower speed is at duty ratio 25%. During high sunload conditions, the front air control. raise the blower speed (duty ratio 49%).
