B12A6 MERCURY Meaning

Under normal operation, to rotate the mode door actuator clockwise, the Electronic Manual Temperature Control (EMTC) or Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (EATC) module supplies voltage and ground to the floor/defrost/panel mode door actuator motor through the circuit. To rotate the mode door actuator counterclockwise, the EMTC module or EATC module reverses the voltage and ground circuits.
The mode door actuator feedback resistor is supplied a ground from the EMTC module or EATC module and a 5-volt reference voltage. The EMTC module or EATC module reads the voltage on the mode door actuator feedback circuit to determine the mode door actuator position by the position of the actuator feedback resistor wiper arm.
