AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:B1468/68

DTC Code DTC Name
B1468/68 Rear Passenger Side Room Temperature Sensor Circuit

DESCRIPTION

The rear room temperature sensor RH is installed in the rear door trim board RH to detect the rear room temperature and control the heater and air conditioner "AUTO" mode. The resistance of the rear room temperature sensor changes in accordance with the rear room temperature for RH seat. As the temperature decreases, the resistance increases. As the temperature increases, the resistance decreases.

The rear door ECU RH sends the read signal to the air conditioning amplifier via the CAN communication line. The rear door ECU RH applies voltage (5 V) to the rear room temperature sensor and reads voltage changes as the resistance of the rear room temperature sensor changes. This sensor also sends the appropriate signals to the rear door ECU RH.

Tech Tips


  • The rear room temperature sensor for RHD vehicle is installed at driver's side.

  • This circuit uses the CAN communication line. Before performing the inspection, check that the CAN communication system is functioning normally.

  2. INSPECT REAR ROOM TEMPERATURE SENSOR RH

    A01GJWLE02

    1. Remove the rear room temperature sensor RH Click here.

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

      Standard resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      1 - 2 10°C (50°F) 3.00 to 3.73 kΩ
      1 - 2 15°C (59°F) 2.45 to 2.88 kΩ
      1 - 2 20°C (68°F) 1.95 to 2.30 kΩ
      1 - 2 25°C (77°F) 1.60 to 1.80 kΩ
      1 - 2 30°C (86°F) 1.28 to 1.47 kΩ
      1 - 2 35°C (95°F) 1.00 to 1.22 kΩ
      1 - 2 40°C (104°F) 0.80 to 1.00 kΩ
      1 - 2 45°C (113°F) 0.65 to 0.85 kΩ
      1 - 2 50°C (122°F) 0.50 to 0.70 kΩ
      1 - 2 55°C (131°F) 0.44 to 0.60 kΩ
      1 - 2 60°C (140°F) 0.36 to 0.50 kΩ

      Note

      Even slightly touching the sensor may change the resistance value. Be sure to hold the connector of the sensor.

      Tech Tips

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

    OK
  3. CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (REAR ROOM TEMPERATURE SENSOR RH - REAR DOOR ECU RH)

    A01GIT2E01

    1. Disconnect the Q4 rear room temperature sensor RH connector.

    2. Disconnect the O2 rear door ECU RH connector.

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

      Standard resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      Q4-2 - O2-26 (TRE) Always Below 1 Ω
      Q4-1 - O2-13 (TRAD) Always Below 1 Ω
      O2-26 (TRE) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
      O2-13 (TRAD) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
