Your truck has a computer module but not an ECU. I think there were some chips made for those but not many because they were carb'd or throttle body.

What 2 wires for iat sensor


you lost the colors.? or are there 2 wires there that you know are IAT but dont know which pin fit them.?
no matter, either pin works.
the sensor is not electronic, its just a resistor, that is non polarized
the ECU sends current to the IAT, the current that flows, tells the
ECU what the air temperature is. in the intake.
no car year stated
no engine option stated in F150
so NO ANSWER exact , ever. (country helps too, but ill not say that it scares folks to death for some reasons)
Im in USA and ford does EXPORT cars and trucks.
the IAT is a thermistor, the FSm shows how it works and how
to test one easy, super easy, ask.

tell more get more.

Iat location


The IAT (Intake Air Temperature) sensor is plugged into the Air-Cleaner housing. One end of the sensor will be found held in place by a rubber grommet and the other end will have a two wire plug attached to it.

Locating the iat sensor on a 2003 dodge 5.9


The IAT sensor is along the intake tube before the throttle body. If your planing to buy the performance chip from EBAY or any other place, save your money. You can go to Radio shack and it will cost you less then $3.00 for the resistor needed to make your own "performance Chip" IF you like you can use and 10K ohm potentiometer wire it through to the IAT sensor wire harness so you can adjust your timing for the type of fuel you want to use or how much performance you want out of your engine. Here is a link to the installation of the resistors and the different resistor's you can use or like me use a Potentiometer. Note if the timing is to high on hot days, the knock sensor may trigger and the engine will power down 15% till next start up. Good luck and hope this helps. http://kingenterprises.net/IAT-Timing-Tricker.htm

Where is the intake air temperature sensor?


if you look in the air intake boot you should see a two wire sensor stuck in it. this is the iat. That being said i dont recommend the "chip" you are referring too all it does is make computer think it is cold outside all the time so it adds more fuel to engine this is were they claim the extra power. decreased mileage and decreased engine life.a programmer works much better.
