Recirculation Control Motor Test

NOTE: Before testing, check for HVAC DTCs.

1.Disconnect the 7P connector from the recirculation control motor.



Incorrectly applying power and ground to the recirculation control motor will damage it. Follow the instructions carefully.


2.Connect battery power to the No. 1 terminal of the recirculation control motor, and ground the No. 2 terminal; the recirculation control motor should run, and stop at Recirculate. If it doesn't, reverse the connections; the recirculation control motor should run, and stop at Fresh. When the recirculation control motor stops running, disconnect battery power immediately.

 

3.If the recirculation control motor did not run in 2, remove it, then check the recirculation control linkage and door for smooth movement.


4.Measure the resistance between the No. 5 and No. 7 terminals. It should be between 4.2 to 7.8 kW.

5.Reconnect the recirculation control motor 7P connector, then turn the ignition switch ON (II).

6.Measure the voltage between the No. 3 and No. 7 terminals.

Recirculate: about 4.0 V 
Fresh: about 1.0 V 

7.If either the resistance or voltage readings are not as specified, replace the recirculation control motor.
