Toyota RAV4 Service Manual: Compressor lock sensor circuit

Toyota RAV4. Compressor lock sensor circuit


Description

This sensor sends 1 pulse per engine revolution to the air conditioning amplifier. If the ratio of the compressor speed divided by the engine speed is smaller than a predetermined value, the air conditioning amplifier turns the compressor off, and the indicator blinks at approximately 1 second intervals.

Solar sensor circuit (passenger side)
Description The solar sensor, which is installed on the upper side of the instrument panel, detects sunlight and controls the air conditioning auto mode. The output voltage from the solar se ...

Pressure sensor circuit
Description This dtc is output when the refrigerant pressure is either extremely low (0.19 Mpa [2.0 Kgf/cm2, 28 psi] or less) or extremely high (3.14 Mpa [32.0 Kgf/cm2, 455 psi] or more). The ...

Test mode procedure
Hint: By switching the skid control ecu from normal mode to test mode, abnormality detection sensitivity is enhanced and troubleshooting can be conducted efficiently. Perform a sensor check in test mode after the speed sensor or sensor rotor has been repaired or replaced. If the igniti ...

Checking and replacing fuses
If any of the electrical components do not operate, a fuse may have blown. If this happens, check and replace the fuses as necessary. Vehicles without a smart key system: turn the engine switch to the “lock” position. Vehicles with a smart key system: turn the engine switch off. Aft ...

Freeze frame data
Freeze frame data Notice: It is difficult to show the specified values (judgment values) clearly because freeze frame data values change significantly due to differences in measurement conditions, surroundings, or vehicle conditions. For this reason, there may be a problem even w ...
