Inspection
1.
Turn the ignition switch OFF.
2.
Disconnect the mode control actuator connector.
3.
Verify that the mode control actuator operates to the defrost mode when connecting 12V to terminal 3 and grounding terminal 4.
Verify that the mode control actuator operates to the vent mode when connected in reverse.

5. Sensor ground
6. Feedback signal
7. Sensor (+ 5V)

4.
Connect the mode control actuator connector.
5.
Turn the ignition switch ON.
6.
Check the voltage between terminal 6 and 5.
  
It will feedback the current position of the actuator to controls.
Specification
Door position
Voltage (V)
Error detecting
Vent
0.5 ± 0.15
Low voltage : 0.1V or less
Defrost
4.5 ± 0.15
High voltage : 4.9V or more

7.
If the measured voltage is not within specification, check the operation by replacing the existing mode control actuator with a new genuine part. After that, determine whether replacement of the mode control actuator is required or not.
Diagnosis With GDS
1.
The heating, ventilation and air conditioning can be quickly diagnosed failed parts with vehicle diagnostic system (GDS).
※ The diagnostic system (GDS) provides the following information.
(1) Self diagnosis : Checking the failure code (DTC) and display.
(2) Current data : Checking the system input/output data state.
(3) Actuation test : Checking the system operation condition.
(4) Additional function : Other controlling such as he system option and zero point adjustment.
2.
Select the 'Car model' and the system to be checked in order to check the vehicle with the tester.
3.
Select the 'Current data' menu to search the current state of the input/output data.
The input/output data for the sensors corresponding to the Mode Control Actuator can be checked.

4.
To perform compulsory operation on Mode Control Actuator input factors, select "ACTUATION TEST".

Replacement
1.
Disconnect the negative (-) battery terminal.
2.
Remove the main crash pad assembly.
(Refer to Body - "Main Crash Pad Assembly")
3.
Disconnect the connector (A) and then remove the mode control actuator (B) after loosening the mounting screws.

4.
To install, reverse the removal procedure.
