Outline

Manual Control

The air conditioner amplifier assembly controls the damper positions (air inlet control damper, air mix control damper and mode control damper) and blower speed in accordance with the positions of the switches (temperature control dial, blower dial, mode select dial and air inlet control switch).

Air Inlet Control

Drives the air inlet servo motor (damper servo sub-assembly) according to the operation of the air inlet control switch and moves the dampers to the fresh or recirculation position.

Compressor Control

Controls the compressor with magnet clutch assembly to turn on or off based on the signals from various sensors.

MAX Air Conditioning Control

When the temperature control dial is turned to the MAX A/C position, the air conditioner amplifier assembly performs the following control to improve cooling efficiency:

  • Turns the compressor with magnet clutch assembly on.
  • Activates the air inlet servo motor (damper servo sub-assembly) to set the air inlet control damper to the recirculation position.*

Diagnosis

A Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) is stored in the memory when the air conditioner amplifier assembly detects a problem with the air conditioning system.
