AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM(for Automatic Air Conditioning System), Diagnostic DTC:B1411/11

DTC Code DTC Name
B1411/11 Room Temperature Sensor Circuit

DESCRIPTION

The cooler (room temp. sensor) thermistor is installed in the instrument panel to detect the cabin temperature, which is used to control the air conditioning system. The resistance of the cooler (room temp. sensor) thermistor changes in accordance with the cabin temperature. 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 cooler (room temp. sensor) thermistor and reads voltage changes due to changes in the resistance of the cooler (room temp. sensor) thermistor.

DTC No. Detection Item DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area Memory
B1411/11 Room Temperature Sensor Circuit Open or short in room temperature sensor circuit

Tech Tips

If the cabin temperature is approximately -18.6°C (-1.48°F) or lower, DTC B1411/11 may be output even though the system is normal.

    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
      15°C (59°F) 2.45 to 2.88 kΩ
      20°C (68°F) 1.95 to 2.30 kΩ
      25°C (77°F) 1.60 to 1.80 kΩ
      30°C (86°F) 1.28 to 1.47 kΩ
      35°C (95°F) 1.00 to 1.22 kΩ
      40°C (104°F) 0.80 to 1.00 kΩ
      45°C (113°F) 0.65 to 0.85 kΩ
      50°C (122°F) 0.50 to 0.70 kΩ
      55°C (131°F) 0.44 to 0.60 kΩ
      60°C (140°F) 0.36 to 0.50 kΩ

      Note


      • Hold the sensor only by its connector. Touching the sensing portion may change the resistance value.

      • When measuring, the sensor temperature must be the same as the ambient temperature.

      Tech Tips

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

  3. CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (COOLER (ROOM TEMP. SENSOR) THERMISTOR - AIR CONDITIONING AMPLIFIER ASSEMBLY)


    1. Disconnect the F80 air conditioning amplifier assembly connector.

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

      Standard Resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      F80-29 (TR) - F55-1 Always Below 1 Ω
      F80-34 (SG-4) - F55-2 Always Below 1 Ω
      F80-29 (TR) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
      F80-34 (SG-4) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
