NO

-Repair an open in the wire between the HVAC control unit and the evaporator temperature sensor.

DTC indicator 15:

A Short in the Evaporator Temperature Sensor Circuit

1. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (OL and then to ON (II).

2. Do the self-diagnostic function with the HVAC control unit (see page 21-9).

3. Check for DTCs.

Is DTC 15 indicated? YES

-Go to step 4.

NO

-lntermittent failure. Check for damaged wires or connections in the evaporator temperature sensor circui.

4. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).

5. Remove the evaporator temperature sensor (see page 21-67) and test it (see page 21-58).

Is the evaporator temperature sensor OK? YES

-Go to step 6.

NO

-Replace the evaporator temperature sensor (see page21-67).B 6. Disconnect the HVAC control unit 24P connector.

7. Check for continuity between body ground and HVAC control unit 24P connector terminal No. 14.
