B160F MeaningThe Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) A/C Heater Module uses a variety of sensors to adjust HVAC operation to obtain optimal performance. These sensors are continuously monitored by the A/C Heater Module to assure that they are in range. If those sensors fall out of predetermined ranges a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will set. If the A/C Heater Module detects on the Auto Headlamps Signal circuit a voltage less than 0.25 volts for the period of two seconds or more. This DTC has a de-maturing time of 20 msec. If the DTCs status changes from active to stored, the DTC will stay in memory for 100 ignition cycles.
