B12A1 MERCURY DescriptionUnder normal operation, to rotate the blend door actuator clockwise, the Electronic Manual Temperature Control (EMTC) Module or Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (EATC) Module supplies voltage to the blend door actuator motors through the door actuator feed A circuits and supplies ground through the door actuator feed B circuits. To rotate the blend door actuator counterclockwise, the EMTC module or EATC module reverses the voltage and ground circuits.
The blend door actuator feedback resistors are supplied a ground from the EMTC module or EATC module by the blend door actuator return circuits and a 5-volt reference voltage on the blend door actuator reference circuits. The EMTC module or EATC module reads the voltage on the blend door actuator feedback circuits to determine the blend door actuator position by the position of the actuator feedback resistor wiper arm.
