Toyota Tacoma 2015-2018 Service Manual: Evaporator Temperature Sensor Circuit (B1413)

DESCRIPTION

The cooler thermistor sensor (evaporator temperature sensor) is installed on the evaporator in the air conditioner unit to detect the temperature of the cooled air that has passed through the evaporator and is used to control the air conditioning. It sends signals to the air conditioning amplifier assembly. The resistance of the cooler thermistor sensor (evaporator temperature sensor) changes in accordance with the temperature of the cooled air that has passed through the evaporator. As the temperature decreases, the resistance increases. As the temperature increases, the resistance decreases.

The air conditioning amplifier assembly applies voltage (5 V) to the cooler thermistor sensor (evaporator temperature sensor) and reads voltage changes as the resistance of the cooler thermistor sensor (evaporator temperature sensor) changes. This sensor is used for frost prevention.

DTC No.
