Hi angela324,

Here are the description and diagnostic procedures.

DTC INDICATOR LIGHT L: AN OPEN OR SHORT IN THE MODE CONTROL MOTOR CIRCUIT
1. Disconnect the mode control motor 10P connector.

2. Disconnect climate control unit connectors A (12P) and B (20P).

3. Check for continuity between body ground and climate control unit connector A (12P) terminals No. 1 and 6 individually, and between body ground and climate control unit connector B (20P) terminals No. 15, 17, 18, 19 and 20 individually.

Is there continuity?

YES
-Repair any short to body ground in the wire (s) between the climate control unit and the mode control motor.
