Actuators

Logic of naming actuators in VW-group is simple it contains "N" + actuator number. The actuator number is unique. Here you can find fitting location, connectors and some basic information about actuators.

To our mind, actuators information is reference, so there is only simple search by number.

B - Coolant hose

C - Coolant hose

D   - Connector -N175/176

E   - Connector -V50

 

The out-flow temperature is regulated by the Climatronic control unit -J255 via the pump/valve unit. This is located on the right-hand side of the air conditioner under the plenum chamber cover in the engine compartment.

The pump/valve unit comprises the coolant recirculation pump -V50 and the left/right heat regulation valves (-N175/-N176). The heat regulation valve, right -N176 regulates the coolant flow fed to the associated heat exchanger for the left side of the passenger compartment from the engine cooling circuit. The valve is operated by the Climatronic control unit -J255 by a pulse width modulated voltage signal. Based on the cyclic operation of the control unit in the Climatronic control unit -J255 the coolant flow to the heat exchanger can be matched precisely to the required heating output.

Climatronic control unit -J255- calculated

opening time for the heat regulation valve, left -N175 in %.

- The valve is open when under no load (de-energised).

J Readout = "100%" (valve permanently open, e.g. with temperature presetting "Hi" for driver side).

J Readout = "1....99%" (valve is activated in loop control mode)

J Readout = "0%" (valve permanently closed, e.g. with temperature presetting "Lo" for driver side).

Activation of coolant recirculation pump -V50 by Climatronic control unit

-J255.

J  Readout = "off" (the pump is not activated, e.g. with temperature presetting "Lo" for driver and passenger side).

J Readout = "on" (pump is activated dependent on ambient temperatures e.g.

at a temperature preset above "Lo" for driver and passenger side)

 

K Notes:

J With no current applied the valve is open. If a valve is defective the associated heat exchanger is fully supplied with coolant, so the full heating power output is safeguarded.
