SOURCE: changed maf sensor because of p0113 code stillhave

The resistance at the MAF sensor should be lower than 16k ohms between the A and F terminal. If it is, then the sensor is ok. Measure voltage at the F terminal (harness) should be 5V. If all is ok it MAY need a pcm, but I would have a professional shop ck it first.

SOURCE: changed maf sensor because of p0113 code stillhave

P0113 is air temp circuit high. The maf sensor (mass air flow) sensor just measures the amount of air entering the engine. The iat (intake air temp) sensor is the one that detects the temperature of the air.
Change that sensor, and the code should disappear. It is located in the intake manifold or air plenum.

Undefinedas replacement on civic 98 sensor p0113


Possible causes for this code are: - Faulty Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor
- Dirty air filter
- Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor harness is open or shorted
- Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor circuit poor electrical connection. this code sets when: - An excessively high voltage from the sensor is sent to ECM. Usual Possible symptoms - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) P0113 1998 Honda Civic Description The Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor is built into mass air flow sensor or in some vehicles mounted to the air filter duct housing. The sensor detects intake air temperature and transmits a signal to the Engine Control Module (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 temperature rise. The Intake Air Temperature signal is used as an input for various systems in the vehicle.

Low temp on iat reading and my 94 chevy dont have one


Pretty sure it would have an IAT sensor, else your scanner would not have been able to show that. Double check for it-it may be mounted right close to the throttle position sensor,. or the idle air control, somewhere in the intake manifold. Your symptoms of running rich are the classic case of a bad IAT, or a bad Coolant Temp. Sensor. But the scanner said iat, so I would believe that. Do you know for a fact it has no intake air temp. sensor?

P0206 p0113 p0123


P0113 - Intake Air Temperature Circuit High Input
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors the temperature of the air entering the engine. The PCM supplies a 5 volt reference voltage to the Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor. The IAT is a thermistor that varies resistance based on temperature. As the temperature increases, resistance decreases. Low temperature results in a high signal voltage. When the PCM sees a signal voltage higher than 5 volts, it sets this P0113 check engine light code.

There will likely be no symptoms other than illumination of the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL - Check Engine Light / Service Engine Soon).

A code P0113 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Internally failed IAT sensor
Faulty connection at IAT sensor
Open in IAT ground circuit or signal circuit
Short to voltage in IAT signal circuit or reference circuit
IAT harness and/or wiring routed too close to high-voltage wiring (e.g. alternator, spark plug cables, etc.)
Faulty PCM (less likely but not impossible)


P0123 Code - Throttle Position Sensor/Switch A Circuit High Input
A P0123 code means that the the car's computer has detected that the TPS (throttle position sensor) is reporting too high a voltage. Some symptoms may include:
Rough idle
High idle
Surging
other symptoms may also be present

A code P0123 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
TPS not mounted securely
TPS circuit short to ground or another wire
Faulty TPS
Damaged computer (PCM)


P0206 - Cylinder 6 Injector Circuit Malfunction
This means that the PCM detected a fault in the injector or the wiring to the injector. It monitors the injector and when the injector is activated, the PCM expects to see the voltage pulled "low" or close to zero. When the injector is switched off, the PCM expects to see a voltage that is close to battery voltage or "high". If it doesn't see the expected voltage the PCM will set this code. The PCM also monitors resitance in the circuit. If the resistance is excessively low or high it will set this code.

The symptoms for this code will likely be a misfire and a rough running engine. Poor acceleration. The MIL will also be illuminated.

The causes of a P0206 engine light code could be any of the following:
Bad injector. This is usually the cause of this code but doesn't rule out the possibility of one of the other causes
Open in the wiring to the injector
Short in the wiring to the injector
Bad PCM

Hello my check engine light is on i went to local parts house had them read the code low input voltage in the iat sensor so i bought a new one had the code cleared and before i left parking lot light was...


Keep in mind that the IAT (intake air temperature) sensor simply measures the temperature of air that is entering the engine. Intake air temperature is important because the higher the intake air, the higher the combustion temperatures. High combustion temperatures result in increased Nox (Nitrogen oxides) emissions. To keep these higher temps from causing increased combustion temps, the intake air tubing should be intact, allowing the engine to "breathe" air that isn't sampled from the engine compartment. The IAT measures air temp by using a thermistor, or a thermometer of sorts. The thermistor is supplied 5 volts reference voltage from the PCM (powertrain control module) and a ground. Usually, when the air temperature is cold the resistance in the thermistor is high and when the air temperature is warmer, the resistance decreases. This change in resistance changes the 5 V reference from the PCM, thereby informing the PCM of the temperature of incoming air. If the PCM notices that the incoming air temp is unusually high, say, 300 degrees, when the engine temp is still relatively low, it will set a P0112.

Symptoms: There may be no noticeable symptoms of a P0112 code other than an MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp). However, a emissions test may reveal higher Nox readings depending on the type of IAT failure. Or the engine may ping under load, depending on the type of IAT failure.

Causes: Usually the P0112 is caused by a bad IAT (internally shorted or open or otherwise damaged), but it could also be:
* No reference voltage to the IAT sensor due to an open wire
* Excessively high intake air temperatures
* Short to ground on signal circuit
* Damaged IAT connector
* Bad PCM

Possible Solutions:
Hook up your scan tool or code reader and read the IAT reading. With a cold engine, the IAT should roughly match the coolant reading, since both will read ambient temperature. If the IAT is reading excessively high, check the IAT connector for damage. If you find none, unplug the IAT sensor and recheck the reading. It should now read the minimum, around -20 deg. If it does, then replace the IAT sensor. But, if the reading is still high, unplug the sensor and check for resistance across the two wiring harness terminals. If there is infinite resistance, then the PCM itself is bad. If the resistance isn't infinite, then check and repair the short to ground on the signal circuit.

Keep us updated.

Replacing temp sensor


Intake Air Temperature Sensor Operation The Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor is a variable temperature sensitive resistor. Sensor resistance will change based on air temperature. The higher the temperature, the lower the resistance. The Engine Management System (EMS) provides a reference voltage and monitors the voltage drop between a fixed value internal resistance and the sensor resistance. This is called a voltage divider circuit.
IAT sensor values are used by the EMS to assist with the calculation of idle speed, fuel mixture and spark advance.
Inaccurate voltages from the IAT sensor may affect pulse-width, idle quality and tail pipe emissions. Intermittent signals may cause hesitation, stumble and surging. If an IAT sensor failure accompanies an Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor failure cooling fan operation may also be affected.
Some manufacturers' incorporate the Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor as part of the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor, or air flow meter. Refer to current service information for specific applications.
Related Symptoms The following symptoms can be caused by a faulty IAT sensor due to loose connections, bad grounds, high resistance in the circuit, or opens in the circuit.
  • Extended crank time when the engine is cold
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Spark knock

P0113


P0113 - Intake Air Temperature Circuit High Input

What does that mean?
The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the temperature of the air entering the engine. The PCM supplies a 5 volt reference voltage to the Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor. The IAT is a thermistor that varies resistance based on temperature. As the temperature increases, resistance decreases. Low temperature results in a high signal voltage. When the PCM sees a signal voltage higher than 5 volts, it sets this P0113 check engine light code.

Potential Symptoms
There will likely be no symptoms other than illumination of the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL - Check Engine Light / Service Engine Soon).

Causes
A code P0113 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* Internally failed IAT sensor
* Faulty connection at IAT sensor
* Open in IAT ground circuit or signal circuit
* Short to voltage in IAT signal circuit or reference circuit
* IAT harness and/or wiring routed too close to high-voltage wiring (e.g. alternator, spark plug cables, etc.)
* Faulty PCM (less likely but not impossible)

Possible Solutions
First, if you have access to a scan tool, is there an IAT reading? If the IAT reading is logical then the problem is likely intermittent. If the reading is less than -30 degrees, unplug the connector. Install a jumper wire between the harness connector signal and ground circuits. The IAT temperature reading on the scan tool should be maxed out at the high end. For example it should be 280 degrees Farenheit or higher. If it is, the wiring is okay, and it may have been the connection. If it isn't install the jumper wire between the IAT signal circuit and the chassis ground. If now the IAT reading on the scan tool is maxed out then check for an open in the IAT ground circuit. If you get no reading at all on the scan tool, it's likely that the sensor signal is open or the 5 volt reference is missing. Check using a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) for a 5 volt reference. If it's there, then unplug the connector at the PCM and check for continuity on the IAT signal circuit between the PCM connector and the IAT connector.

Hope this help (remember rated this).

P0102 OBD-II Trouble Code - Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit Low Input

What does that mean?
Basically this means that there is a problem with the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor or circuit. A more technical description would be that the MAF circuit had lower than expected voltage (air flow). Other MAF sensor circuit DTC trouble codes are P0100, P0101, P0103, and P0104.

Symptoms
You will likely not notice any serious drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a general decrease in power or sluggishness.

Causes
A code P0102 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* The MAF may be disconnected, or a wiring connection may be bad
* The MAF may be dirty or otherwise contaminated (Note: if you use a reusable oiled air filter, be careful not to apply too much oil or that can contaminate the MAF).
* The MAF sensor may be faulty
* The vehicle computer may be faulty (very rare)

Possible Solutions
The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back. Then start with the cheapest, easiest repair procedures:
* Verify that the Mass Air Flow Sensor wiring is connected properly and that there are no broken / frayed wires.
* Inspect for any air leaks near the MAF sensor.
* Take the MAF out and clean it using a spray cleaner such as brake cleaner or electrical contact cleaner. Be gentle with the sensor.
* Check the voltage of the MAF sensor (refer to a repair manual for vehicle specific information)
* Replace the MAF sensor.
