Toyota Corolla Cross: Evaporator Temperature Sensor Circuit Short to Battery or Open (P053515)

DESCRIPTION

The No. 1 cooler thermistor is installed to the evaporator in the air conditioner unit to detect the temperature of the cooled air that has passed through the evaporator, which is used to control the air conditioning system. It sends signals to the air conditioning amplifier assembly. The resistance of the No. 1 cooler thermistor changes in accordance with the temperature of the cooled air that has passed through the evaporator. As the temperature decreases, the resistance increases. As the temperature increases, the resistance decreases.

The air conditioning amplifier assembly applies voltage (5 V) to the No. 1 cooler thermistor and reads voltage changes as the resistance of the No. 1 cooler thermistor changes.
