A/C AUTO AMP.

A/C AUTO AMP.: Description

COMPONENT DESCRIPTION

A/C Auto Amp. (Air Conditioner Automatic Amplifier)

Nissan Maxima. COMPONENT DESCRIPTION

The A/C auto amp. (1) has a built-in microcomputer that processes information sent from various sensors needed for air conditioner operation. The air mix door motor(s), the mode door motor, the intake door motor, the blower motor and the A/C compressor are then controlled.

When the various switches and temperature control switches are operated, data is input to the A/C auto amp. from the AV switch assembly using CAN communication.

The A/C auto amp. is operated with control mechanisms. Signals from various switches and Potentio Temperature Control (PTC) are directly entered into the A/C auto amp.

A/C AUTO AMP.: Component Function Check

1.CHECK OPERATION

  1. Press the AUTO switch, and then check that "AUTO" is shown on the display.
  2. Operate the temperature control switch (driver side). Check that the fan speed or outlet changes. (The discharge air temperature or fan speed varies depending on the ambient temperature, in-vehicle temperature, and temperature setting.)

A/C AUTO AMP.: Diagnosis Procedure

1.CHECK A/C AUTO AMP. POWER SUPPLY
