NOTE
The key should be in the off position when connecting the HVAC control module electrical connector to ensure proper calibration.

  1. Connect the HVAC control module electrical connector.
  2.  
  3. Install the HVAC control module into the I/P opening.
    NOTE
    Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems. Install the HVAC control module retaining screws and tighten the screws to 22 inch lbs. (2.5 Nm).
