Toyota CH-R Service Manual: PTC Heater Circuit

DESCRIPTION

The air conditioning amplifier assembly sends operation signals to the PTC heater relays when quick heater assembly operation conditions are met. Based on the signals from the air conditioning amplifier assembly, the PTC heater relays turn on, and power is supplied to the quick heater assembly installed in the air conditioning radiator assembly.
