Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: Intake door motor

Description

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

Component Parts

Intake door control system components are: • Front air control

• Intake door motor (LCU)

System Operation

The intake door control determines the intake door position based on the position of the recirculation switch.

When the recirculation switch is depressed the intake door motor rotates closing off the fresh air inlet and recirculating the cabin air. If the recirculation switch is depressed again, the intake door motor rotates in the opposite direction, again allowing fresh air into the cabin.
