Toyota RAV4 Service Manual: Solar sensor circuit (passenger side)

Toyota RAV4. 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 sensor varies in accordance with the amount of sunlight. When the sunlight increases, the output voltage increases. As the sunlight decreases, the output voltage decreases.

The air conditioning amplifier detects changes in the output voltage from the solar sensor.

  1. Inspect cooler (solar sensor) thermistor

Toyota RAV4. Inspect cooler (solar sensor) thermistor


  1. Remove the solar sensor.
  2. Measure the resistance of the sensor.
  3. Connect the ohmmeter's positive (+) lead to terminal 1 and the negative (-) lead to terminal 2 of the solar sensor.

Standard resistance


Notice:

The connection procedure for using a digital tester such as an electrical tester is shown above. When using an analog tester, connect the positive (+) lead to terminal 2 and the negative (-) lead to terminal 1 of the solar sensor.

Hint:



  1. Check wire harness (solar sensor - air conditioning amplifier)

Hint: Use the table below to help determine the cause of the problem symptom. The potential causes of the symptoms are listed in order of probability in the "suspected area" column of the table. Check each symptom by checking the suspected areas in the order they are listed. Re ...

Freeze frame data
Freeze frame data Hint: Whenever a dtc is detected or the abs operates, the skid control ecu stores the current vehicle (sensor) state as freeze frame data. The skid control ecu stores the number of times (maximum: 31) the ignition switch has been turned from off to on since the ...

Removal
Hint: Use the same procedures for the lh side and rh side. The procedures listed below are for the lh side. Disconnect cable from negative battery terminal Caution: Wait at least 90 seconds after disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal to prevent airbag and ...
