Active Grille Shutters

Active grille shutters AGSG1001 for light-duty truck

Located between the front grille and the condenser, the Active Grille Shutters (AGS), otherwise known as Radiator Shutter Assembly, are plastic shutters that open or close to control the airflow going under the hood. Limiting the airflow improves fuel economy by helping the engine warm-up and reducing drag at high-speed.

Common Active Grille Shutters Failure Symptoms

  • Check engine light
  • Engine overheating
  • Shutters stay in open or close positions

Common Causes of Failure

Impact

Any heavy impact on the plastic shutters may damage them, especially collisions involving the front-end of the vehicle.

Electric short

The actuator’s motor controlling the shutters’ movement may fail prematurely due to an electric short.

Malfunctioning active grille shutters hinder the airflow reaching the condenser and the radiator which may drastically reduce the efficiency of engine cooling and climate control systems.
