HYBRID CONTROL SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:P0AEE-277, P0AF1-276

DTC Code DTC Name
P0AEE-277 Motor Inverter Temperature Sensor "A" Circuit Range / Performance
P0AF1-276 Drive Motor Inverter Temperature Sensor "A" Circuit Intermittent / Erratic

DESCRIPTION

The MG ECU located in the inverter with converter assembly detects the temperature of the motor inverter using the temperature sensor built into the motor inverter. If necessary, the MG ECU will limit inverter output to help prevent motor inverter overheating. The power management control ECU also detects malfunctions in the sensor based on the temperature sensor values. The inverter with converter assembly detects malfunctions in the motor inverter temperature sensor and its wiring.

DTC No. INF Code DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
P0AEE 277

Motor inverter temperature calculated by the power management control ECU is different from the actual temperature for 10 seconds or more, and the motor inverter temperature is too high.

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

CAUTION:


  • Before inspecting the high-voltage system or disconnecting the low voltage connector of the inverter with converter assembly, take safety precautions such as wearing insulated gloves and removing the service plug grip to prevent electrical shocks. After removing the service plug grip, put it in your pocket to prevent other technicians from accidentally reconnecting it while you are working on the high-voltage system.

  • After removing the service plug grip, wait for at least 10 minutes before touching any of the high-voltage connectors or terminals. After waiting for 10 minutes, check the voltage at the terminals in the inspection point in the inverter with converter assembly. The voltage should be 0 V before beginning work Click here.

    Tech Tips

    Waiting for at least 10 minutes is required to discharge the high-voltage capacitor inside the inverter with converter assembly.

Note

After turning the power switch off, waiting time may be required before disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) auxiliary battery terminal. Therefore, make sure to read the disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) auxiliary battery terminal notices before proceeding with work Click here.

Tech Tips

After the repair, clear the DTCs and perform the following procedure to check that DTCs are not output.


  1. Turn the power switch on (READY) and wait for 120 seconds or more.

  2. Perform a road test according to the freeze frame data item "Vehicle Spd" for approximately 10 minutes.


    • During the road test, check that the Data List items "Inverter Coolant Water Temperature", "Inverter Temp (MG2)" and "Inverter W/P Revolution" are within the specified range to prevent the motor inverter from overheating.

PROCEDURE


  1. CHECK DTC OUTPUT (HYBRID CONTROL)


    1. Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the power switch on (IG).

    3. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Hybrid Control / Trouble Codes.

    4. Check if DTCs are output.

      Result
      Result Proceed to
      P0AEE-277 or P0AF1-276 is output. A
      Any of the following DTCs are also output. B
      DTC No. Relevant Diagnosis
      P0A93-346 Inverter Cooling System Performance
      P0C73-776 Motor Electronics Coolant Pump "A" Control Performance
      P314A-828 Inverter Coolant Pump Speed Signal

      Tech Tips

      P0AEE-277 or P0AF1-276 may be set due to a malfunction which also causes DTCs in the preceding table to be set. In this case, first troubleshoot the output DTCs in the preceding table. Then, perform a test to attempt to reproduce the problems, and check that no DTCs are output.

    5. Turn the power switch off.

  2. CHECK CONNECTOR CONNECTION CONDITION (INVERTER WITH CONVERTER ASSEMBLY CONNECTOR)

    CAUTION:

    Be sure to wear insulated gloves.


    1. Check that the service plug grip is not installed.

      Note

      After removing the service plug grip, do not turn the power switch on (READY), unless instructed by the repair manual because this may cause a malfunction.

    2. Check the connector connections and contact pressure of the low voltage connectors of the inverter with converter assembly Click here.

      Note

      Before disconnecting the connector, confirm that it is properly connected by checking that the locking claws are engaged and that the connector does not pull out.

      A01HVLPE01
      OK
      The connectors are connected securely and there are no contact pressure problems.

      Tech Tips

      When connecting the connector, insert it with the locking lever in the raised position. Rotate the lever downward and make sure that the connector is pulled into its socket. When the locking lever is in its fully closed position, a click will be heard as its locking claws engage. After the click is heard, pull up on the connector to confirm that it is properly connected.

    OK
  3. CHECK QUANTITY OF HV COOLANT


    1. Check the HV coolant level in the inverter reserve tank.

    2. Check for HV coolant leaks.

      Result
      Result Proceed to
      No leaks are found and coolant level in the inverter reserve tank assembly is above the low line. A
      No leaks are found and coolant level in the inverter reserve tank assembly is below the low line. B
      HV coolant leaks are evident. C

      Tech Tips

      After repairing the HV coolant leaks and adding coolant, perform the "Activate the Water Pump" Active Test (HV Active Test item) and the "Control the Electric Cooling Fan" Active Test (Engine Active Test item) and make sure that there are no malfunctions.

  4. CHECK COOLANT HOSE


    1. Check if the hoses of the cooling system are kinked or clogged.


    NG
    OK
  5. PERFORM ACTIVE TEST USING TECHSTREAM (CONTROL THE ELECTRIC COOLING FAN)


    1. Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the power switch on (IG).

    3. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Active Test / Control the Electric Cooling Fan.

    4. Perform the "Control the Electric Cooling Fan" Active Test.

      OK
      The cooling fan rotates.
    5. Turn the power switch off.


    NG
    OK
  6. CHECK HV COOLANT (CHECK FOR CONDITIONS THAT MAY HAVE CAUSED FREEZING)


    1. Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the power switch on (IG).

    3. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Hybrid Control / Trouble Codes.

    4. Read the freeze frame data Ambient Temperature using the Techstream.

    5. Check if the freeze frame data Ambient Temperature is below freezing.

      Result
      Result Proceed to
      Ambient Temperature value is below freezing temperature of the HV coolant. A
      Ambient Temperature value is above freezing temperature of the HV coolant. B

      Tech Tips


      • HV coolant (SLLC) with a 30% concentration freezes at -15 °C (5°F) and HV coolant (SLLC) with a 50% concentration freezes at -35°C (-31°F).

      • If the HV coolant freezes in the HV radiator or HV water pump, the coolant temperature in the inverter with converter assembly rises because the HV coolant cannot circulate. As a result, a DTC may be set.

      • A DTC is set when the water pump impeller cannot rotate due to freezing of the HV coolant.

      • If a DTC is set due to freezing of HV coolant, the problem cannot be reproduced. Judge whether freezing of HV coolant occurred according to the freeze point of the HV coolant, HV coolant change history and ambient temperature when the DTC was set.

    6. Turn the power switch off.
