Toyota Sienna Service Manual: Evaporator temperature sensor circuit

DESCRIPTION

The evaporator temperature sensor (A/C thermistor) is installed on the evaporator in the air conditioning unit. It detects the temperature of the cooled air that has passed through the evaporator and its signal is used to control the air conditioning. It sends a signal to the A/C amplifier. The resistance of the evaporator temperature sensor (A/C thermistor) changes in accordance with the temperature of the cooled air that has passed through the evaporator. As the temperature decreases, the resistance increases. As the temperature increases, the resistance decreases.

The A/C amplifier applies voltage (5 V) to the evaporator temperature sensor (A/C thermistor) and reads voltage changes as the resistance of the evaporator temperature sensor (A/C thermistor) changes. This sensor is used to prevent the evaporator from freezing.

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

1 READ VALUE OF INTELLIGENT TESTER

(a) Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

(b) Turn the ignition switch to the ON position and turn the intelligent tester main switch on.

(c) Select the item below in the DATA LIST, and read the display on the intelligent tester.

DATA LIST / AIR CONDITIONER:

OK: The display is as specified in the normal condition column.

Result

2 INSPECT EVAPORATOR TEMPERATURE SENSOR

INSPECT EVAPORATOR TEMPERATURE SENSOR

(a) Disconnect the connector from the evaporator 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).

3 CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (EVAPORATOR TEMPERATURE SENSOR - A/C AMPLIFIER)

CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (EVAPORATOR TEMPERATURE SENSOR - A/C AMPLIFIER)

(a) Disconnect the evaporator temperature sensor connector.

CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (EVAPORATOR TEMPERATURE SENSOR - A/C AMPLIFIER)

(b) Disconnect the A/C amplifier connector.

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

Installation
1. INSTALL CAMSHAFT TIMING OIL CONTROL VALVE ASSEMBLY (for Bank 2 Exhaust Side)  Apply a light coat of engine oil to the new O-ring and install it to the camshaft timing oil control valve. Install the camshaft timing oil control valve assembly with the bolt. Torque: 10 N ...

Check mode procedure
HINT: Intelligent tester only: Compared to normal mode, check mode is more sensitive to malfunctions. Therefore, check mode can detect the malfunctions that cannot be detected by normal mode. NOTICE:All the stored DTCs and freeze frame data are erased if: 1) the ECM is changed fro ...

TC and CG Terminal Circuit
DESCRIPTION Connecting terminals TC and CG of the DLC3 causes the system to enter the self-diagnostic mode. If a malfunction is present, DTCs will be output. HINT: When a particular warning light remains blinking, a ground short in the wiring of terminal TC of the DLC3 or an internal ground ...
