P1497 Intake Air Temperature Sensor 1 Circuit High

DESCRIPTION

A004P3DE01
*1 (Fig. 1)
*2 Resistance kΩ
*3 Acceptable
*4 Temperature °C (°F)

The Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor senses the IAT after the intake air passes through the intercooler. A built-in thermistor in the sensor changes its resistance value according to the intake air temperature. The lower the intake air temperature, the higher the thermistor resistance value. The higher the intake air temperature, the lower the thermistor resistance value (See Fig. 1).

The sensor is connected to the ECM. The 5 V power source voltage in the ECM is applied to the sensor from terminal THIA via resistor R. Resistor R and the sensor are connected in series. When the resistance value of the sensor changes in accordance with changes in the IAT, the potential at terminal THIA also changes. Based on this signal, the ECM corrects the fuel injection volume to improve driveability with a cold engine.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Note

After replacing the ECM, the new ECM needs registration (See page ) and initialization Click here.

Tech Tips


  • If DTCs relating to different systems are stored and they share terminal E2 as their ground, check this ground circuit first.

  • Read freeze frame data using the intelligent tester. Freeze frame data records the engine condition when malfunctions are detected. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.

PROCEDURE


  1. READ VALUE USING INTELLIGENT TESTER (INTAKE AIR TEMPERATURE [TURBO])


    1. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON and turn the tester on.

    3. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Data List / Intake Air Temp (Turbo).

    4. Read the value.

      OK
      Same as air temperature near intake manifold.
      Result
      Result Proceed to
      -40°C (-40°F) A
      140°C (284°F) or higher B
      OK (same as air temperature near intake manifold) C

      Tech Tips


      • If there is an open circuit, the tester indicates -40°C (-40°F).

      • If there is a short circuit, the tester indicates 140°C (284°F) or more.
