P1493 Battery Temp. Sensor, Low Voltage

The battery temp sensor is built in to the PCM (ECU). The input from this sensor is used to adjust the alternator charging rate based upon the ambient tempature around the battery. The P1493 code is set when the sensor voltage is less than 0.3 V for 3 seconds. The only way to fix this code is to replace the PCM since the sensor is part of it internally.

Make sure the engine is reaching operating temperature, U may have a problem w/the thermostat, this is code P0117

Have the battery and the Alternator tested for possiable charging system issue, this is code P1493

I have a 2002 chevy tahoe 4X4 with a 5.3L that has set a P1258 code engine over temp, it has also set a P0117 ect low input code, and a P1637 L terminal circuit, P1638 F terminal circuit codes.


If these codes are being only set during start I would expect a failure of the battery. If the voltage goes much below 9 VDC the computers (EMS) can become erratic and codes and limp home modes are a common result of defective and discharged batteries!



Careful having the battery tested. Any arcing etc at the battery can be the kiss of death for the engine computer. Better to remove terminal to check. Or test the crank voltage with multi-meter.

Check engine and battery lights are on after i changed both(battery and alternater) ...the car would run but the battery will be drained what's wrong wit my 96 eclipse


If you used a new or rebuild alternator, I'd suspect that the harness from the alternator to the battery is open circuit. It happens with age and corrosion. Measure the alternator terminal voltage, engine running. Should be about 13.7v. Same voltage should appear on the battery + terminal. If not, make up a heavy duty temp cable and run it from the alt to the battery.

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 p0302 p1493


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.

1995 mitsubishi eclipse gsx. Getting only 190 miles on a full tank of gas, driving slowly. Check engine light comes on. Only mods: aftermarket air fliter and blow of valve. Please help!


Check the code at advance auto parts, replace the PCV valve just in case. It is an inexpensive part, and if it is clogged will cause the engine to consume more fuel than normal. Also, check the EGR tube coming out of the EGR valve and going to the Intake Manifold. This clogs up with carbon, and is a very common problem that throws a code.

Check engine code p1493. the check engine light and battery light is on what does this mean?


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.
