Toyota 4Runner: Room Temperature Sensor Circuit (B1411/11)

DESCRIPTION

The cooler thermistor (room temperature sensor) for the front seat is installed in the instrument panel to detect the room temperature and control the heater and air conditioner auto mode. The resistance of the room temperature sensor changes in accordance with the front room temperature. 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 room temperature sensor and reads voltage changes as the resistance of the room temperature sensor changes. This sensor also sends the appropriate signals to the air conditioning amplifier assembly.

NOTICE:

  • Even slightly touching the sensor may change the resistance value. Be sure to hold the connector of the sensor.
  • When measuring, the sensor temperature must be the same as the ambient temperature.

HINT:

As the temperature increases, the resistance decreases (refer to the graph).
