INSPECTION PROCEDURE

Tech Tips


  • If any of DTCs P0115, P0116, P0117 or P0118 is set simultaneously with DTC P0125, the engine coolant temperature sensor may have an open or a short circuit. Troubleshoot those DTCs first.

  • Read freeze frame data using the intelligent tester. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can be helpful in determining whether the vehicle was running or stopped, whether the engine was warmed up or not, whether the air fuel ratio was lean or rich, as well as other data recorded at the time of a malfunction.

PROCEDURE


  1. CHECK ANY OTHER DTCS OUTPUT (IN ADDITION TO DTC P0125)


    1. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the power switch on (IG).

    3. Turn the tester on.

    4. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / DTC.

    5. Read the DTCs.

      DTC P0125 and other DTCs are output B

      Tech Tips

      If any DTCs other than P0125 are output, troubleshoot those DTCs first.

  2. INSPECT WATER INLET WITH THERMOSTAT SUB-ASSEMBLY


    1. Remove the water inlet with thermostat sub-assembly Click here.

    2. Check the valve opening temperature of the water inlet with thermostat sub-assembly.

      Standard value
      80 to 84°C (176 to 183°F)

      Tech Tips

      In addition to the above check, confirm that the valve is completely closed when the temperature is below the standard.

    3. Reinstall the water inlet with thermostat sub-assembly Click here.

    OK
  3. CHECK COOLING SYSTEM


    1. Check for defects in the cooling system that might cause the system to be too cold, such as abnormal radiator fan operation or any modifications.
