Ford Focus Service Manual: Control Components

Electronic Manual Temperature Control (EMTC)

The HVAC module allows the vehicle occupants to select the following:

Control System Inputs

The blower motor speed switch is mounted in the HVAC module and controls blower motor speed by adding or bypassing resistors in the blower motor resistor in all modes except OFF. The blower motor speed switch is serviced only as an assembly with the HVAC module.

The temperature control switch adjusts the discharge air temperature. Movement of the temperature knob from COOL (blue) to WARM (red) causes a corresponding movement of the temperature blend door. The position of the temperature blend door determines the discharge air temperature that the air distribution system will maintain. The temperature control selector is an integral part of the HVAC module and cannot be installed separately.

The airflow mode setting adjusts the discharge air outlet location. Depressing each airflow mode selector button causes a corresponding movement of the airflow mode doors and determines the discharge air outlet location. The airflow mode selector buttons are each an integral part of the HVAC module and cannot be installed separately.

The A/C request button determines A/C compressor operation, except when the airflow mode selector is in the OFF, MAX A/C or DEFROST mode. The A/C request button is an integral part of the HVAC module and cannot be installed separately.

The recirculated air request button can select recirculated air in any mode except DEFROST, and fresh air in any mode except MAX A/C or OFF. The recirculated air request button is an integral part of the HVAC module and cannot be installed separately.

The rear defog button signals activation of the heated backlight. The rear defog button is an integral part of the HVAC module and cannot be installed separately.

Control System Outputs

The Electronic Manual Temperature Control (EMTC) system has 4 system outputs.

Blower Motor Speed

The blower motor speed switch varies the blower motor ground circuit resistance by adding or bypassing series resistance in the blower motor resistor. Increased resistance will lower the blower motor speed, and lowered resistance will increase blower motor speed. When the blower motor is in the HI (4) position, the blower motor resistor is bypassed.

The blower motor resistor is located on the heater core and evaporator core housing behind the glove compartment.

Temperature Blend Door Position

The temperature blend door actuator moves the temperature blend door on command from the HVAC module.

The temperature blend door actuator contains a reversible electric motor and a potentiometer. The potentiometer circuit reports the position of the temperature blend door to the HVAC module. The HVAC module drives the temperature blend door actuator motor in whichever direction is necessary to move the temperature blend door to the position set by the vehicle occupants.

The temperature blend door actuator is mounted to the heater core and evaporator core housing to the right of the accelerator pedal and can be installed separately.

Airflow Mode Door Position

The airflow mode door actuator uses a cam and lever assembly to position the airflow mode doors on command from the HVAC module.

The mode door actuator contains a reversible electric motor and potentiometer. The potentiometer circuit reports the position of the airflow mode doors to the HVAC module. The HVAC module drives the actuator motor in whichever direction is necessary to move the airflow mode doors to the position set by the vehicle occupants using the mode selector buttons.

The airflow mode door actuator is mounted to the plenum chamber to the right of and above the accelerator pedal and can be installed separately.

Air Inlet Mode Door Position

The air inlet mode door actuator moves the air inlet door between the fresh and RECIRC positions on command from the HVAC module. The air inlet mode door actuator is driven to, and will automatically stop at, the full RECIRC or full fresh air inlet position and does not require a potentiometer circuit to monitor its position. The airflow mode door does not stop at any point between the RECIRC or fresh air inlet position.

The air inlet mode door actuator is mounted to the air inlet duct and can be accessed through the glove compartment. The air inlet mode door actuator can be installed separately.
