CODE 21? OR RECIRCULATION FAILURE WITHOUT A CODE?

9-5 click for Recirculation motor repair.

9-5 ACC code page has additional diagnostic info.

Note Error code B2409 (code 21) is not related. It is usually caused by failure of SAAB part number 4869426. As this part controls the recirculate door, poor cooling performance could occur similar to the blend door issue. Failure of 4869426 can occur without a code being present. The code presents after the motor fails due to constant running. Always check the function of the recirculate door when cooling performance is poor, even if the blend door shaft was found to be broken. Also it is not uncommon to have noticable differences in temperature between the left and right side when the freon level is low. Please verify that the blend door shaft is indeed broken.
