I am working on a gc with auto climate control.Right side temp never changes.Pulled codes52 and 56.Erased codes and they came back.Alldata has no info on codes.I suspect mode door motor but do not want to pull dash unless necessary.Also any troubleshooting tips on heated seats that do not work at all?The switches light up on dash but no heat.Alldata is not overly helpful unless you have a chrysler scanner.

sorry its so long giving all the codes for AZT- as jeep call it
Let us know if this helps
there are several TSB's for this ....ALLDATA should have them

Recalibration
Calibrating AZC door actuators

Calibrate the door actuators after making any repairs to the AZC system. To calibrate the door actuators proceed as follows:

1. Turn the ignition on.
2. Set the AZC to automatic.
3. Turn the ignition off.
4. Remove the IOD fuse from the Power Distribution Center. Wait several seconds, and then install the IOD fuse.
5. Turn the ignition on. Do not touch any of the AZC controls for at least one minute to allow the calibration function to run to completion.


Every 20 key cycles the AZC head initiates a re-calibration routine which identifies pulse counts required to achieve full door travel. Also during this routine all modes and functions are validated as functional. When the self calibration routine is complete, the control head resets itself to its last settings.

The air conditioning compressor will engage in certain modes to cool and remove moisture from air entering the passenger compartment. The AZC control, when it is not set in the auto mode, always defaults to A/C enabled. The LED illuminates when the control requests A/C. The customer must toggle A/C off by depressing the button every time he turns to manual mode or the A/C is enabled. Additionally, when the vehicle is off for a "calibratable" amount of time, automatic A/C is again enabled and the customer must again force it off by depressing the button.

Check TSB 08-004-01 rev. b
Says to check for open in the seat cushions with an ohm meter.
This was a very common problem with these vehicles. You will have to replace the cushion with updated ones. Go to the dealer for parts. Most poeple decline the repair if it is not under warranty. Make sure you have a clean work area to work in when you remove the seats or you will be doing a litttle clean up after the work is done. HTH Greasemonkey :)
