DTC Troubleshooting: 8

DTC indicator 8:  An Open in the Evaporator Temperature Sensor Circuit

1.Clear the DTC.

2.Turn the ignition switch OFF, and then ON (II).

3.Do the self-diagnostic with the HVAC control unit..

4.Check for DTCs.

Is DTC 8 indicated?


YES - Go to 5.


NO - Intermittent failure, check for loose wires or poor connections on the evaporator temperature sensor circuit.n


5.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

6.Remove the evaporator temperature sensor and test it.

Is the evaporator temperature sensor OK?


YES - Go to 7.


NO - Replace the evaporator temperature sensor.n

7.Disconnect the HVAC control unit 24P connector.

8.Check for continuity between the HVAC control unit 24P connector terminal No. 2 and the evaporator temperature sensor 2P connector terminal No. 2.

 

Is there continuity?


YES - Go to 9.


NO - Repair open in the wire between the HVAC control unit and the evaporator temperature sensor.n

9.Check for continuity between the HVAC control unit 24P connector terminal No. 13 and the evaporator temperature sensor 2P connector terminal No. 1.

 

Is there continuity?


YES - Check for loose wires or poor connections at the HVAC control unit 24P connector and at the evaporator temperature sensor 2P connector. If the connections are good, substitute a known-good HVAC control unit, and recheck. If the symptom/indication goes away, replace the original  HVAC control unit.n


NO - Repair open in the wire between the HVAC control unit and the evaporator temperature sensor.n
