The Intake Air Temperature (IAT) is along the intake housing between the throttle body and MAF sensor. The wire harness to the IAT is small consist of just two and the sensor it self is not expansive at Auto Zone or any large Auto Parts store. Check the wire harness first to see if it was un clipped or the wire broke.
The IAT works by measuring the temperature going in to the engine sending signals to the ECM to keep the air fuel ratio to 14.7 to 1. As the temperature drop the air density rises and more fuel is needed to keep the 14.7 to 1 ratio.
With your IAT reading P0113 which is no reading, your car is running on a given default which would think the engine is running like it's winter time so your fuel will be bad and you may get a miss fire from time to time as the timing will be advanced and detonation may occur which is bad.
I hooked up a 10K ohm potentiometer which i bought at Radio Shack (The Source in Canada) to my IAT sensor so i can control the temperature i want the ECM to read. If i want to save some money I ****** the timing by turning up th ohm to make it seam like to the ECM that it's 185  degress fahrenheit and it takes 2 to 3 degrees total timing out and shortens the fuel injector pules.
If i want to more timing and longer fuel injector pules i turn down the resistor reading from the potentiometer and the ECM thinks it's minus 20 out side. The performance goes up and the fuel economy goes down but it's a lot for fun to drive when you gain an other 15 HP.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Po113 code

P0113 - It is Intake Air Temperature Circuit High (IAT) Input.
First make sure you IAT connector is secure and wiring is intact.
Check your air filter first to see if it is dirty.
Try cleaning intake and throttle body.
Finally could be faulty IAT

I have and error code of p0113

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 plugmag-glass_10x10.gif cables, etc.)
  • Faulty PCM (less likely but not impossible)

Took my focus 2003 to autozone it is going thru alot of gas and we changed the spark plugs they ran a test and the codes are po113 & po303 i do not know what this means can you help me

P0113 indicates the IAT Intake Temperature Sensor has a problem.
P0303 indicates a misfire on cylinder 3

I believe the IAT is built into the MAF sensor located in the air snorkle and helps regulate the air/fuel mixture. Also concentrate on cylinder 3 looking for problems such as injector, wiring, etc.

Hope this helps!

Autozone reading PO113, PO201, PO204, PO300, PO342, P1627

You may be biting off more then you want to chew.
P0113 is intake air temperature circuit high input.
P0201 is injector circuit malfunction cyl.#1.
P0204 is injector circuit malfunction cyl.#4.
P0300 is random - multiple misfire detected.
There isn't just one reason why these codes came up. A scan-tool is needed to confirm live data and to run some tests to see if these codes are true. some codes come up because something else has malfunctioned.
The intake temp sensor sould be inside the MAF sensor.
You may have more questions, please ask away.

Check engine light on.code is po113.sensor 1 circuit high input

If the only code you have is a P0113 then the answer to your question is no it can not be the oxygen sensor. P0113 indicates that the IAT sensor is reading at -46 deg F. With the computer thinking it is that cold it will need lots of fuel,cold air is more dense and com-pack so more molecules of oxygen and therefore needs more fuel to keep correct air/fuel ratio.
Do you have a way to measure voltage across the sensor?
You should have about 5V coming into the sensor and around 1.5 to 3.0V(depending on the temp) leaving it.
