Toyota Venza: Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Low Input (P0102,P0103)

Toyota Venza Service Manual / 1ar-fe Engine Control / Sfi System / Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Low Input (P0102,P0103)

DESCRIPTION

The mass air flow meter is a sensor that measures the amount of air flowing through the throttle valve. The ECM uses this information to determine the fuel injection time and to provide the appropriate air-fuel ratio.

Inside the mass air flow meter, there is a heated platinum wire which is exposed to the flow of intake air. By applying a specific electrical current to the wire, the ECM heats it to a given temperature. The flow of incoming air cools both the wire and an internal thermistor, affecting their resistance. To maintain a constant current value, the ECM varies the voltage applied to the wire and internal thermistor. The voltage level is proportional to the airflow through the sensor, and the ECM uses it to calculate the intake air volume.

The circuit is constructed so that the platinum hot wire and the temperature sensor create a bridge circuit, and the power transistor is controlled so that the potentials of A and B remain equal to maintain the predetermined temperature.

HINT:

When any of these DTCs is stored, the ECM enters fail-safe mode. During fail-safe mode, the ignition timing is calculated by the ECM, according to the engine speed and throttle valve position. Fail-safe mode continues until a pass condition is detected.


DTC No.

DTC Detection Condition

Trouble Area

P0102

The mass air flow meter voltage is less than 0.2 V for 3 seconds.

(1 trip detection logic: Engine speed is less than 4000 rpm)

(2 trip detection logic: Engine speed is 4000 rpm or more)

  • Open or short in mass air flow meter circuit
  • Mass air flow meter
  • ECM

P0103

The mass air flow meter voltage is more than 4.9 V for 3 seconds.

(1 trip detection logic: Engine speed is less than 4000 rpm)

(2 trip detection logic: Engine speed is 4000 rpm or more)

  • Open or short in mass air flow meter circuit
  • Mass air flow meter
  • ECM

HINT:

When any of these DTCs are output, check the air-flow rate using the Techstream. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Data List / MAF.

Mass Air Flow Rate (gm/s)

Malfunction

Approximately 0.0

  • Open in mass air flow meter power source circuit
  • Open or short in VG circuit

271.0 or more

  • Open in E2G circuit

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

If there is a defect in the mass air flow meter or an open or short circuit, the voltage level deviates from the normal operating range. The ECM interprets this deviation as a malfunction in the mass air flow meter circuit and stores a DTC.

Example:

When the sensor output voltage remains below 0.2 V, or higher than 4.9 V for 3 seconds, the ECM stores a DTC.

CONFIRMATION DRIVING PATTERN


  1. Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to ON and turn the Techstream on.
  3. Clear the DTCs (even if no DTCs are stored, perform the clear DTC procedure) (See page ).

  4. Turn the ignition switch off and wait for at least 30 seconds.
  5. Turn the ignition switch to ON and turn the Techstream on [A].
  6. Start the engine.
  7. Idle the engine for 5 seconds [B].
  8. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Trouble Codes [C].
  9. Read the Pending DTCs.

    HINT:

    • If a pending DTC is output, the system is malfunctioning.
    • If a pending DTC is not output, perform the following procedure.
  10. Run the engine at an engine speed of 4000 rpm or more for 5 seconds [D].
  11. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Trouble Codes [E].
  12. Read the Pending DTCs.

    HINT:

    • If a pending DTC is output, the system is malfunctioning.
    • If a pending DTC is not output, perform the following procedure.
  13. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Utility / All Readiness.
  14. Input the DTC: P0102 or P0103.
  15. Check the DTC judgment result.

    Techstream Display

    Description

    NORMAL

    • DTC judgment completed
    • System normal

    ABNORMAL

    • DTC judgment completed
    • System abnormal

    INCOMPLETE

    • DTC judgment not completed
    • Perform driving pattern after confirming DTC enabling conditions

    N/A

    • Unable to perform DTC judgment
    • Number of DTCs which do not fulfill DTC preconditions has reached ECU memory limit

    HINT:

    • If the judgment result shows NORMAL, the system is normal.
    • If the judgment result shows ABNORMAL, the system has a malfunction.
    • If the judgment result shows INCOMPLETE or N/A, perform steps [B] and [E] again.
  16. If the no pending DTC is output, perform a universal trip and check for permanent DTCs (See page ).

    HINT:

    • If a permanent DTC is output, the system is malfunctioning.
    • If no permanent DTC is output, the system is normal.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

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

HINT:

Read freeze frame data using the Techstream. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, if the air fuel ratio was lean or rich, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.
