P0182 – Fuel Temperature Sensor Circuit Low input MMC L200 IV



OPERATION

  • A power voltage of 5 V is applied to the fuel temperature sensor output terminal (terminal No. 1) from the engine-ECU (terminal No. 55).
  • The power voltage is earthed to the engine-ECU (terminal No. 79) from the fuel temperature sensor (terminal No. 2).

  • FUNCTION

  • The fuel temperature sensor converts the fuel temperature into a voltage and inputs the voltage signal to the engine-ECU.
  • In response to the signal, the engine-ECU corrects the fuel injection amount, etc.
  • The fuel temperature sensor is a kind of resistor, which has characteristics to reduce its resistance as the fuel temperature rises. Therefore, the sensor output voltage varies with the fuel temperature, and becomes lower as the fuel temperature rises.

  • TROUBLE JUDGEMENT

  • Battery positive voltage is 8 – 16 V
  • 2 seconds later after the ignition switch has been in “ON” position or the engine has started up.
  • The fuel temperature sensor output voltage is 0.10 V or less for 0.5 second.

  • PROBABLE CAUSES

  • Failed fuel temperature sensor
  • Short circuit or harness damage in fuel temperature sensor circuit or loose connector contact
  • Failed engine-ECU
