Toyota CH-R Service Manual: Ambient Temperature Sensor Circuit (B1412)

DESCRIPTION

The thermistor assembly is installed in front of the cooler condenser assembly to detect the ambient temperature, which is used to control the air conditioning system. This sensor is connected to the combination meter assembly and detects fluctuations in the ambient temperature. This data is used for controlling the cabin temperature. The sensor sends a signal to the combination meter assembly. The resistance of the thermistor assembly changes in accordance with the ambient temperature. As the temperature decreases, the resistance increases. As the temperature increases, the resistance decreases.

The combination meter assembly applies a voltage (5 V) to the thermistor assembly and reads voltage changes due to changes in the resistance of the thermistor assembly.

DTC No.

Ambient Temperature Sensor Circuit

When the air conditioning amplifier assembly cannot receive outside temperature sensor data from the combination meter assembly.

  • Thermistor assembly
  • Harness or connector between thermistor assembly and combination meter assembly
  • Air conditioning amplifier assembly
  • Combination meter assembly
  • CAN communication system

Memorized

(4 seconds or more)*

  • *: The air conditioning amplifier assembly stores this DTC if the malfunction has occurred for the period of time indicated in the brackets.

HINT:

If the ambient temperature is approximately -52.9°C (-63.22°F) or lower, DTC B1412/12 may be output even though the system is normal.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

When replacing the combination meter assembly, always replace it with a new one. If a combination meter assembly which was installed to another vehicle is used, the information stored in it will not match the information from the vehicle and a DTC may be stored.
