It will feedback the current position of the actuator to controls.
7.
If the intake actuator does not operate well, substitute with a known-good intake actuator and check for proper operation.
8.
Replace the intake actuator if it is proved that there is a problem with it.
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 Intake Actuator can be checked.

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

Replacement
1.
Disconnect the negative (-) battery terminal.
2.
Remove the glove box housing.
(Refer to Body - "Glove Box Housing")
3.
Remove the passenger's side shower duct (A) after loosening the screw.

4.
Disconnect the connector (A) and then remove the intake actuator (B) after loosening the mounting screws.

5.
Install in the reverse order of removal.
