The cables must be adjusted for proper function of the control module. To adjust the cable, attach the cable to the lever arm of the control module. Turn the knob fully counterclockwise. Pull the cable jacket away from the cable end until taut. Clip the cable jacket to the control module. The knob should travel a full 180° if the cable is properly adjusted.

The RECIRC door is actuated by a cable which mechanically positions the door.

The RECIRC door actuator is located at the far right of the A/C Heater housing near the right A-pillar.
