P1493 Battery Temp. Sensor, Low Voltage,Solution: have the Battery and the Alternator tested, Auto Zone and Kragen as well as others do this for free. I suspect your Alternator is the problem.

Battery and brake light on


For some reason the brake warning light and battery light are connected, so either system could be having problems.
The battery warning light could mean the battery is not being charged, and the brake warning light could mean you are low on brake fluid.
I would start with the check engine light and see what the codes are.

What does code p 1493 mean


Hi Raul:


P1493 is ambient temp sensor volts low. The most likely cause for this code to set is a bad sensor or a wiring problem. I can give you testing instructions if you would like. You will need a volt meter.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.


Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

P1493 code


If you are running any extra systems, ie amps, subs, high watt speakers, etc. etc. you may need to get a better batter, like the blue. or yellow top one. check with auto zone.

P1684 - Less than 50 Key On's.
P0302 - Misfire at Cylinder #2
P1493 - Ambient/Battery Temperature Sensor Input voltage too low.
Oil Light with the correct oil level = Oil Pressure/Sending Sensor.

Check engine light came on my 2006 Kia Rio : diagnostic code p0496. What is this and what does it mean?


that code definition is "Evap high purge flow fault". It means you may have a problem with the evaporative system. this system routes fuel fumes back to the fuel tank. If you want to try and clear this code, find the radio code for your car and then disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. Reconnect the battery and the check engine light should be out. You will then need the radio code to reset your car stereo. the check engine light may stay off if the condition was a transient one. If not, the light will come back on after you drive the car two drive cycles. That is: two starts, warm ups and shut downs. If the light returns, have a mechanic check it out.
