Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: P0127 IAT sensor

Description

Nissan Maxima. Description

The intake air temperature sensor is built-into the mass air flow sensor (1). The sensor detects intake air temperature and transmits a signal to the ECM.

The temperature sensing unit uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. Electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases in response to the rise in temperature.

DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

1.PRECONDITIONING

If DTC Confirmation Procedure has been previously conducted, always perform the following before conducting the next test.

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds.
  2. Turn ignition switch ON.
  3. Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds.

TESTING CONDITION: This test may be conducted with the drive wheels lifted in the shop or by driving the vehicle. If a road test is expected to be easier, it is unnecessary to lift the vehicle.

2.PERFORM DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

With CONSULT

  1. Wait until engine coolant temperature is less than 90C (194F)
  • Turn ignition switch ON.
  • Select "DATA MONITOR" mode with CONSULT.
  • Check the engine coolant temperature.
  • If the engine coolant temperature is not less than 90C (194F), turn ignition switch OFF and cool down engine.

NOTE: Perform the following steps before engine coolant temperature is above 90C (194F).

  1. Turn ignition switch ON.
  2. Select "DATA MONITOR" mode with CONSULT.
  3. Start engine.
  4. Hold vehicle speed at more than 70 km/h (43 MPH) for 100 consecutive seconds. CAUTION: Always drive vehicle at a safe speed.
  5. Check 1st trip DTC.

With GST

Follow the procedure "With CONSULT" above.

Diagnosis Procedure

1.CHECK GROUND CONNECTION

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Check ground connection E9.

2.CHECK INTAKE AIR TEMPERATURE SENSOR

3.CHECK INTERMITTENT INCIDENT

Component Inspection

1.CHECK INTAKE AIR TEMPERATURE SENSOR

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
