|What Does the B374A 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Code Mean?

Doors in the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) case assembly are used to control airflow. The HVAC control module operates the doors using actuators, with one actuator being used for each door. The system has the following air control doors and associated actuators: mode, left and right temperature, and recirculation. When equipped with auxiliary HVAC controls 2 additional actuators are added for auxiliary (rear) mode and temperature.
Each actuator used in the system is a 5-wire bi-directional electric motor that incorporates a feedback potentiometer. The five circuits are low reference, 5 V reference, actuator position signal, and two control circuits. The control circuits use either ground or 12 V value to coordinate the actuator movement. In order to move the actuator, the HVAC control module grounds one of the control circuits while providing the other with 12 V. The HVAC control module reverses the polarity of the control circuits to move the actuator in the opposite direction.
When the actuator shaft rotates, the potentiometer's sliding contact changes the door position signal between 0-5 V. The HVAC control module converts the voltage signal to counts. The total range of the counts is 0-1024, with an operating range between 20-1000. The actual operating range of an actuator is determined during calibration. During calibration, the actuator is moved through its full range of travel, and the module stores the minimum and maximum value. Based on the desired system operation, the module sets a commanded, or targeted, value for the actuators. The control circuits are operated to move the door to the required position, and the changing position signal is sent to the module. Once the actual position signal and the commanded value are the same, the module ceases operating the control circuits and the actuator (and door) remains in the desired position.
