Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: Mode door motor

Description

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

Component Parts

Mode door control system components are: • Front air control

• Mode door motor (LCU)

System Operation

The front air control receives user inputs through its various dials and switches. The front air control sends air mix door, mode door and intake door opening angle data to the air mix door motor LCU, mode door motor LCU and intake door motor LCU.

The air mix door motor, mode door motor and intake door motor read their respective signals according to the address signal. Opening angle indication signals received from the front air control and each of the motor position sensors are compared by the LCU's in each motor with the existing decision and opening angles. Subsequently, HOT/COLD or DEFROST/VENT or FRESH/RECIRCULATION operation is selected. The new selection data is returned to the front air control.

COMPONENT DESCRIPTION

Mode Door Motor

The mode door motor (1) is attached to the heater and cooling unit assembly. It rotates so that air is discharged from the outlet set by the front air control. Motor rotation is conveyed to a link which activates the mode door.

SYMPTOM: Mode door motor and/or air mix door motor does not operate normally.

Perform diagnostic procedure for LAN system circuit. Refer to HAC-115, "Diagnosis Procedure".

SYMPTOM: • Air outlet does not change.

• Mode door motor does not operate normally.
