Intake Air Temperature Sensor: Testing and Inspection

Diagnostic Procedures

IAT in MAF Sensor, Checking

‹› The Mass Air Flow sensor and the Intake Air Temperature sensor are combined as a unit and are serviced as an assembly.

‹› Use only gold-plated terminals when servicing terminals in the electrical harness connector of the MAF / IAT sensor (G70 / G42).

Special tools, testers and auxiliary items required

‹› multimeter.

‹› Wiring diagram.

Test procedure

-

Observe safety precautions. Refer to => [ Safety Precautions ] See: Powertrain Management/Computers and Control Systems/Service
Precautions/Safety Precautions

-

Observe Clean Working Conditions. Refer to => [ Clean Working Conditions ] See: Powertrain Management/Computers and Control
Systems/Service Precautions/Clean Working Conditions

-

Perform a preliminary check to verify the customers complaint. Refer to => [ Preliminary Check ] See: Powertrain Management/Computers and
Control Systems/Testing and Inspection/Scan Tool Testing and Procedures/Preliminary Check

Start diagnosis

-

Connect the scan tool.

-

Engine MUST be at room temperature.

-

Switch the ignition on.

-

Using the scan tool, check the intake air temperature:

If the specified value was obtained:

-

Fault may be intermittent. Check for proper connection, damaged wiring or loose terminals.

If the specified value was Not obtained:

Checking internal resistance

-

Disconnect the MAF / IAT sensor (G70 / G42) electrical harness connector.

-

Using a multimeter, check the MAF / IAT sensor (G70 / G42) terminals 3 to 4 for resistance.

Use the chart below for the specified values:

Specified values:
