Component Function Check

1.CHECK OPERATION

  1. Warm up the engine.
  2. Operate the fan control dial. Check that the fan speed and indicator are switched for all fan speeds.

Diagnosis Procedure

1.CHECK WITH SELF-DIAGNOSIS FUNCTION OF CONSULT

  1. Using CONSULT, perform "SELF-DIAGNOSIS RESULTS" of HVAC.
  2. Check if any DTC No. is displayed in the self-diagnosis results.

NOTE: If DTC is displayed along with DTC U1000 or U1010, first diagnose the DTC U1000 or U1010.

2.CHECK WITH ACTIVE TEST OF CONSULT

  1. Using CONSULT, perform "HVAC TEST""ACTIVE TEST" of HVAC to check each output device. Refer to HAC-26, "CONSULT Function". NOTE: Perform the ACTIVE TEST after starting the engine because the compressor is operating.
  2. Check that the blower motor control signal changes according to each indicator signal.

NOTE: Perform the inspection of each output device after starting the engine because the compressor is operating.

3.CHECK FUSE

Check 15A fuses (Nos. 21 and 22).

4.CHECK POWER SUPPLY FOR BLOWER MOTOR

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect blower motor connector.
  3. Turn ignition switch ON.
  4. Check voltage between blower motor harness connector M31 terminal 4 and ground.
