The Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Control Module sends a low side pulse width modulation (PWM) signal to request electrical auxiliary heater operation if the interior temperature is too low and additional heat is required. The requested signal from the HVAC control module, battery positive, ignition, and ground circuits enable the electrical auxiliary heater to operate. The electrical auxiliary heater sends a ground signal to report the status of the heater operation. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be set when the feedback signal of the electrical auxiliary heater does not correspond with the requested PWM signal.
