Toyota Venza: Room Temperature Sensor Circuit (B1411/11)

Toyota Venza Service Manual / Heating / Air Conditioning / Air Conditioning System / Room Temperature Sensor Circuit (B1411/11)

DESCRIPTION

The room temperature sensor is installed in the instrument panel. It detects the cabin temperature to control the air conditioning AUTO mode. The resistance of the room temperature sensor changes in accordance with the cabin 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 room temperature sensor and reads voltage changes as the resistance of the room temperature sensor changes. This sensor also sends appropriate signals to the A/C amplifier.

DTC No.
