DESCRIPTION

A01E1VEE01

The exhaust gas temperature sensors are installed before and after the DPF catalytic converter to sense the exhaust gas temperature.

A thermistor built into the sensor changes its resistance value according to the exhaust gas temperature. The lower the exhaust gas temperature, the higher the thermistor resistance value. The higher the exhaust gas temperature, the lower the thermistor resistance value.

The exhaust gas temperature sensor is connected to the ECM. The 5 V power source voltage in the ECM is applied to the exhaust gas temperature sensor from terminal THCF (B1S1), THCI (B1S2) and THCO (B1S3) via resistor R.

Resistor R and the exhaust gas temperature sensor are connected in series. When the resistance value of the exhaust gas temperature sensor changes in accordance with the exhaust gas temperature, the voltage at terminals THCF (B1S1), THCI (B1S2) and THCO (B1S3) also changes. The No. 1 exhaust gas temperature sensor monitors the temperature upstream of the CCo catalyst. The No. 2 exhaust gas temperature sensor monitors the temperature upstream of the DPF catalyst. The No. 3 exhaust gas temperature sensor monitors the rise in temperature of the DPF catalyst. When PM forced regeneration is needed, the ECM operates the exhaust fuel addition injector to obtain target upstream temperature of the DPF catalytic converter as monitored through sensor 2. In addition, the ECM monitors the temperature increase of the DPF catalytic converter using sensor 3.

Tech Tips


  • DTC P20CF (Exhaust fuel addition injector malfunction) may be stored if there is an open malfunction in an exhaust gas temperature sensor circuit.

  • Sensor 1 represents the sensor located upstream of the CCo catalytic converter.

  • Sensor 2 represents the sensor located upstream of the DPF catalytic converter.

  • Sensor 3 represents the sensor located downstream of the DPF catalytic converter.

  • When DTC P0545, P0546, P2032, P2033, P242C and/or P242D is output, check the upstream and downstream exhaust gas temperature indicated by "Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Exhaust Temperature B1S1, Exhaust Temperature B1S2 and Exhaust Temperature B1S3" using the intelligent tester.

Condition Exhaust Gas Temperature Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor Condition
Idling after warm-up Constant at between 50 and 700°C (122 and 1292°F) Normal

1000°C (1832°F) Short circuit

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The ECM constantly monitors the output voltages from the exhaust gas temperature sensors in order to detect problems with the sensors. When the sensor output voltage deviates from the normal operating range (between 0.2 V and 4.95 V) for more than 3 seconds after the engine is warmed up, the ECM interprets this as malfunction of the sensor circuit and illuminates the MIL.

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

Note


  • Inspect the fuses of circuits related to this system before performing the following inspection procedure.

  • After replacing the ECM, the new ECM needs registration Click here and initialization Click here.

  • After replacing the fuel supply pump assembly, the ECM needs initialization Click here.

  • After replacing an injector assembly, the ECM needs registration Click here.

Tech Tips


  • 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.

  • If DTC P242D is stored and the exhaust gas temperature sensor (B1S3) circuit is not malfunctioning, check if the DPF catalytic converter has melted as DTC P242D may be stored when the DPF catalytic converter melts and the exhaust gas temperature sensor (B1S3) is exposed to high temperatures.
