DTC B1412/12 Ambient Temperature Sensor Circuit

DESCRIPTION

The ambient temperature sensor is installed in front of the condenser to detect the ambient temperature which is used to control the air conditioner "AUTO" mode. This sensor is connected to the A/C amplifier and detects fluctuations in the ambient temperature. This data is used for controlling the cabin temperature. The sensor sends a signal to the A/C amplifier. The resistance of the ambient temperature sensor changes in accordance with the ambient temperature. As the temperature decreases, the resistance increases. As the temperature increases, the resistance decreases.

The A/C amplifier applies voltage (5 V) to the ambient temperature sensor and reads voltage changes as the resistance of the ambient temperature sensor changes.

2 INSPECT AMBIENT TEMPERATURE SENSOR

 INSPECT AMBIENT TEMPERATURE SENSOR

(a) Remove the ambient temperature sensor.

(b) Measure the resistance according to the value(s) in the table below.

Standard resistance

NOTICE:

HINT: As the temperature increases, the resistance decreases (see the graph).

1. INSPECT VENTILATION VALVE (a) Install a clean hose to the ventilation valve. (b) Check the ventilation valve operation. (1) Blow air into the cylinder head side, and check that air passes through easily. NOTICE: Do not suck air through the valve. Petroleum substances i ...

Sound Signal Circuit between Radio Receiver and Stereo Jack Adapter
DESCRIPTION The stereo jack adapter sends an external device sound signal to the radio receiver through this circuit. The sound signal that has been sent is amplified by the stereo component amplifier or radio receiver, and then is sent to the speakers. If there is an open or short in th ...

Tire Pressure Warning Light Circuit
DESCRIPTION If the ECU detects trouble, the tire pressure warning light blinks (comes on after blinking for 1 minute) and tire pressure monitor is cancelled at the same time. At this time, the ECU records a DTC in the memory. Connect terminals TC and CG of DLC3 to make the tire pressure war ...
