Toyota Venza: Ambient Temperature Sensor Circuit (B1412/12)

Toyota Venza Service Manual / Heating / Air Conditioning / Air Conditioning System / Ambient Temperature Sensor Circuit (B1412/12)

DESCRIPTION

The ambient temperature sensor is installed in front of the condenser. It detects the ambient temperature to control air conditioning AUTO mode. This sensor is connected to the A/C amplifier and detects fluctuations in the ambient temperature. This data is used for controlling the cabin temperature. The sensor sends a signal to the A/C amplifier. The resistance of the ambient temperature sensor changes in accordance with the ambient temperature. As the temperature decreases, the resistance increases. As the temperature increases, the resistance decreases.

The A/C amplifier applies voltage (5 V) to the ambient temperature sensor and reads voltage changes as the resistance of the ambient temperature sensor changes.

DTC No.

NOTICE:

  • Hold the sensor only by its connector. Touching the sensor may change the resistance value.
  • When measuring, the sensor temperature must be the same as the ambient temperature.

HINT:

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