B12A9 LINCOLN Description

Under normal operation, the air inlet door actuator motors are supplied voltage or ground on the circuit, depending on desired actuator rotation, by the Electronic Manual Temperature Control (EMTC) Module or Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (EATC) Module. The EMTC module or EATC module then supplies the appropriate voltage or ground to the other side of the actuator motor on. The module sets the OBDII code when the Air Inlet Door Actuator is not to factory specifications.
