Customer Question

05 sebring temp door wont work new act and control

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the door moves by hand and you're able to control temperature that way then the issue is the actuator not being driven. If the actuator and control head were replaced with new parts and the door is not being controlled then the issue is with the body control module or the wiring between it and the actuator.

Was a calibration done after the parts were replaced, and if so did the actuator move during the calibration?

dont know how to do calibration. almost impossible to find info on this car
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

Remove the IOD fuse from the box on the dash for about two minutes. Reinsert the fuse, turn the key on and blower motor on. The doors will sweep during calibration and after about a minute then you'll regain normal control. See if you can then change temperature.

Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

It's in the junction block in the dash.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
on the side of bcm?
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

The junction block is the fuse box in the left end of the dash. Open the door and remove the cover on the end of the dash to expose it.

Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

It looks like your question had timed out due to age and I never saw your last post.

The blend door driver wires are the dark blue/white and dark blue/red, pins 15 and 25 in BCM connector 2 respectively.

The dark blue/gray is the sensor ground, pink/dark blue is the 5v supply from pin 1 in connector 2, red/white is the signal wire in pin 8.
