The engine coolant temperature sensor is used to detect the engine coolant temperature. The sensor modifies a voltage signal from the ECM. The modified signal returns to the ECM as the engine coolant temperature input. The sensor uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. The electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases as temperature increases.
DTC DETECTION LOGIC
NOTE: If DTC P0116 is displayed with P0117 or P0118, first perform the trouble diagnosis for DTC P0117, P0118. Refer to See: P0117.
DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE 1.PRECONDITIONING
If DTC Confirmation Procedure has been previously conducted, always perform the following before conducting the next test.
Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds.
Turn ignition switch ON.
Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds. TEST CONDITION:
Before performing the following procedure, do not add fuel.
>> GO TO 2. 2.PERFORM DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE
Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
Rev engine up to 2,000 rpm for more than 10 minutes.
Move the vehicle to a cool place, then stop engine and turn ignition switch OFF.
Check resistance between "fuel level sensor unit and fuel pump" terminals 4 and 5.
Soak the vehicle until the resistance between "fuel level sensor unit and fuel pump" terminals 4 and 5 becomes 0.5 kOhm(s) higher than the value measured before soaking.
CAUTION: Never turn ignition switch ON during soaking.
NOTE: Soak time changes depending on ambient air temperature. It may take several hours.
Start engine and let it idle for 5 minutes.
Check 1st trip DTC. Is 1st trip DTC detected?
YES >> Refer to Diagnosis Procedure
NO >> Inspection END
