Toyota Tundra Service Manual: Room Temperature Sensor Circuit (B1411/11)

DESCRIPTION

The room temperature sensor is installed in the instrument panel to detect the room temperature and control the heater and air conditioner "AUTO" mode. The resistance of the room temperature sensor changes in accordance with the room temperature. As the temperature decreases, the resistance increases. As the temperature increases, the resistance decreases.

The air conditioning amplifier applies voltage (5 V) to the room temperature sensor and reads voltage changes as the resistance of the room temperature sensor changes. This sensor also sends the appropriate signals to the air conditioning amplifier.

INSPECT ROOM TEMPERATURE SENSOR

(a) Remove the room temperature sensor (see page ).

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

Standard resistance:

Condition

Specified Condition

1 - 2

10°C (50°F)

3.00 to 3.73 kΩ

15°C (59°F)

2.45 to 2.88 kΩ

20°C (68°F)

1.95 to 2.30 kΩ

25°C (77°F)

1.60 to 1.80 kΩ

30°C (86°F)

1.28 to 1.47 kΩ

35°C (95°F)

1.00 to 1.22 kΩ

40°C (104°F)

0.80 to 1.00 kΩ

45°C (113°F)

0.65 to 0.85 kΩ

50°C (122°F)

0.50 to 0.70 kΩ

55°C (131°F)

0.44 to 0.60 kΩ

60°C (140°F)

0.36 to 0.50 kΩ

NOTICE:

  • Even slightly touching the sensor may change the resistance value. Be sure to hold the connector of the sensor.
  • When measuring, the sensor temperature must be the same as the ambient temperature.

HINT:

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

    DESCRIPTION The ECM uses signals from the output speed sensor SP2 and input speed sensor NT to detect the actual gear position (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th gear). Then the ECM compares the actual gear with the shift schedule in the ECM memory to detect mechanical problems of the shift solenoid va ...
