WARNING: CARBON MONOXIDE IS COLORLESS, ODORLESS AND DANGEROUS. IF IT IS NECESSARY TO OPERATE THE ENGINE WITH THE VEHICLE IN A CLOSED AREA SUCH AS A GARAGE, ALWAYS USE AN EXHAUST COLLECTOR TO VENT THE EXHAUST GASES OUTSIDE THE CLOSED AREA.
CAUTION: Whenever components in areas of the engine compartment or instrument panel (04320) are being serviced, the battery ground cable must be disconnected to eliminate the possibility of electrical shorts, burned-up wiring and fires. Extreme care must be exercised when performing electrical tests where the battery must be connected to operate the system.
The following diagram illustrates the vacuum hose connections between the vacuum source, vacuum control motors (18A318), and A/C control (19980). The diagram also identifies the color coding of the vacuum hoses and charts the function control knob settings and vacuum application by heater control (18549) and function.
