Automatic Temperature/Zone Control System - On-board Diagnostics

Note: The diagnostic function of the ATC/AZC system is lost when the vehicle's battery is disconnected. If you are going to disconnect the battery, first perform these diagnostic procedures.
1. Some Grand Cherokee models are equipped with automatic heating and air conditioning systems. 1998 and earlier models are equipped with Automatic Temperature Control systems and the 1999 and later models are equipped with the Automatic Zone Control system. In either case, these systems include a digital display on the dash panel. This system incorporates an on-board diagnostic function capable of troubleshooting input and output circuits and indicating both current and historical faults. Historical faults are those circuits which have had a problem in the past but are currently working. Many historical faults are the result of loose wiring connectors or connectors that have been disturbed by other repair work.
2. The same portion of the display that incidates the temperature acts as a test indicator to show fault codes.
3. If there is trouble in the ATC/AZC system, an "ER" message will display on the indicator once during an ignition cycle.
4. To access the fault codes, depress the AC and RECIRC buttons at the same time and hold them in while you rotate the temperature knob one click clockwise. Note: On 1999 and later models rotate the left temperature control knob one click clockwise. The complete display wil light up (the segment test). If any of the lighted segments of the flourescent vacuum tubes fail to illuminate, the ATC/AZC control panel is faulty and should be replaced.
5. After the segment test is performed release the buttons. On 1999 and later models, the display will clear momentarily and automatically begin displaying any stored trouble codes. If no trouble codes are stored a "0" will be displayed.
6. On 1998 and earlier models, "00" will show on the display (select test level). Now push either the AC or RECIRC buttons and the "stickman" figure will appear, indicating the Fault Code Mode. Fault codes from 1 to 64 will appear if there are codes in memory. Record these codes and compare them to the chart to find the areas requiring further diagnosis.
7. If Fault Code 25 or 29 appears, the ATC/AZC control module itself must be replaced before any further testing is done. Current fault codes are cleard whenever the problem is solved or goes away. To cleare historical faults, hold the AC or RECIRC button for 3 seconds. The faults have cleared when two horizontal bars appear in the display or they do not appear after several ON/OFF cycles of the ignition key.
8. The ATC/AZC diagnostic system is quite complicated and is capable of displaying data to check both input and output circuitry. Houwver, if you can't find the problem through the basic Fault Code information, take the vehicle to a dealer service department for further testing.
