AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM(for Manual Air Conditioning System), Diagnostic DTC:B1413/13

DTC Code DTC Name
B1413/13 Evaporator Temperature Sensor Circuit

DESCRIPTION

The No. 1 cooler thermistor (evaporator temperature sensor) is installed on the evaporator in the air conditioning unit to detect the temperature of the cooled air that has passed through the evaporator and control the air conditioning. It sends appropriate signals to the air conditioning amplifier assembly. The resistance of the No. 1 cooler thermistor changes in accordance with the temperature of the cooled air that has passed through the evaporator. As the temperature decreases, the resistance increases. As the temperature increases, the resistance decreases.

The air conditioning amplifier assembly applies voltage (5 V) to the No. 1 cooler thermistor and reads voltage changes as the resistance of the No. 1 cooler thermistor changes. This sensor is used for frost prevention.

    1. Remove the No. 1 cooler thermistor 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 (14°F) 7.30 to 9.10 kΩ
      -5°C (23°F) 5.65 to 6.95 kΩ
      0°C (32°F) 4.40 to 5.35 kΩ
      5°C (41°F) 3.40 to 4.15 kΩ
      10°C (50°F) 2.70 to 3.25 kΩ
      15°C (59°F) 2.14 to 2.58 kΩ
      20°C (68°F) 1.71 to 2.05 kΩ
      25°C (77°F) 1.38 to 1.64 kΩ
      30°C (86°F) 1.11 to 1.32 kΩ

      Tech Tips

      As the temperature increases, the resistance decreases (Refer to the graph).

      Note


      • 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.
