HYBRID CONTROL SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:P0A37-260, P0A3A-258

DTC Code DTC Name
P0A37-260 Generator Temperature Sensor Circuit Range / Performance
P0A3A-258 Generator Temperature Sensor Circuit Intermittent

DESCRIPTION

The resistance of the thermistor built into the generator temperature sensor changes in accordance with changes in generator (MG1) temperature. The lower the generator (MG1) temperature, the higher the thermistor resistance. Conversely, the higher the generator (MG1) temperature, the lower the resistance.

Tech Tips


  • If DTC P0A37-260 is output, clear the DTCs, perform the following procedure, and check that the same DTC is not output after the repair.


    1. Drive the vehicle (stop and go driving) on urban roads for approximately 5 minutes. If the Data List item "Motor Temp No2" shows both increases and decreases in temperature, suspected areas indicated by this DTC are not malfunctioning.

  • If DTC P0A3A-258 is output, clear the DTCs, perform the following procedure, and check that the same DTC is not output after the repair.


    1. Turn the power switch on (READY) and wait for 30 seconds or more.

    2. Drive the vehicle for approximately 5 minutes according to the freeze frame data items "Vehicle Spd", "Inverter Coolant Water Temperature", "Motor Temp No1" and "Motor Temp No2".
