СИСТЕМА ECD, Diagnostic DTC:P0112, P0113

DTC Code DTC Name
P0112 Intake Air Temperature Circuit Low Input
P0113 Intake Air Temperature Circuit High Input

DESCRIPTION

The intake air temperature sensor is built into the Mass Air Flow (MAF) meter and senses the intake air temperature.

A thermistor built into the sensor changes its resistance value according to the intake air temperature.

The lower the intake air temperature, the greater the thermistor resistance value. The higher the intake air temperature, the lower the thermistor resistance value (See Fig. 1).

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

Tech Tips

When the intake air temperature sensor output is outside the normal range, the ECM determines that this is a malfunction.

Tech Tips


  • If DTC P0112 or P0113 is stored, the following symptoms may appear:


    • Misfire

    • Combustion noise

    • Black smoke

    • White smoke

    • Lack of power

  • When DTC P0112 or P0113 is stored, check the intake air temperature by entering the following menus on the intelligent tester: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Data List / Intake Air.

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

Note


  • When replacing the ECM, the ECM needs Registration and Initialization Click here.

Tech Tips


  • When the ECM must be replaced, before replacing the ECM, perform the "Learning Values Save" function using the intelligent tester. Then after installing the new ECM, perform all of the initializations/registrations for the "Learning Values Write" function by following the instructions shown on the tester display.

  • 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)


    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.

    4. Read the value.

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

      Tech Tips


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

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