Toyota Tacoma 2015-2018 Service Manual: Ambient Temperature Sensor Circuit (B1412)

DESCRIPTION

The ambient temperature sensor is installed in front of the condenser to detect the ambient temperature which is used to control the air conditioning system AUTO mode. This sensor is connected to the air conditioning amplifier assembly and detects fluctuations in the ambient temperature. This data is used for controlling the cabin temperature. The sensor sends a signal to the air conditioning amplifier assembly. 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 air conditioning amplifier assembly applies a voltage (5 V) to the ambient temperature sensor and reads voltage changes due to changes in the resistance of the ambient temperature sensor.

DTC No.
