Toyota Tundra Service Manual: Air Mix Damper Control Servo Motor Circuit (Driver Side) (B1446/46)

DESCRIPTION

The No. 1 damper servo sub-assembly (air mix damper servo motor [for driver side]) sends pulse signals to inform the air conditioning amplifier of the damper position. The air conditioning amplifier activates the motor (normal, reverse) based on the signals to move the air mix damper (for driver side) to any position. As a result the amount of air that has passed through the evaporator and is now passing through the heater core is adjusted, and the temperature of the air blowing toward the driver side is controlled.

HINT:

Confirm that no mechanical problem is present because this diagnostic trouble code can be output when either a damper link or damper is mechanically locked.
