Dodge Journey: Module, power, rear blower motor

DESCRIPTION

Heating & Air Conditioning
Fig. 59: Rear Blower Power Module Description

A blower motor power module is used on this model when equipped with the automatic temperature control (ATC) rear heating-A/C system. Models equipped with the manual temperature control (MTC) rear heating-A/C system use a blower motor resistor, instead of the blower motor power module.

The rear blower motor power module (1) is mounted to the inboard side of the rear heating-A/C housing, located on the right side of the vehicle. The rear blower motor power module consists of a molded plastic housing with two integral wire connector receptacles (2) for the power module electronic circuitry, a mounting plate (3) with a gasket and a finned aluminum heat sink (4).

The rear blower motor power module can be accessed for service without removing the rear heater-A/C housing.

OPERATION

The rear blower motor power module is connected to the vehicle electrical system through a dedicated lead and connector of the rear body wire harness. A second lead and connector of the wire harness is connected to the rear blower motor. The rear blower motor power module allows the microprocessor-based automatic temperature contro (ATC) A/C-heater control to calculate and provide infinitely variable blower motor speeds based upon either manual blower switch input or the ATC programming using a pulse width modulated (PWM) circuit strategy.

The PWM voltage is applied to a comparator circuit which compares the PWM signal voltage to the rear blower motor feedback voltage. The resulting output drives the power module circuitry, which provides a linear output voltage to change or maintain the desired blower speed.

The rear blower motor power module is diagnosed using a scan tool.

The rear blower motor power module cannot be adjusted or repaired must be replaced if inoperative or damaged.
