Lexus RX (RX 350L, RX450h) 2016-2023 Repair Manual: Intake Air Temperature Sensor 1 Bank 1 Circuit Short to Battery or Open (P011015)

Lexus RX (RX 350L, RX450h) 2016-2023 Repair Manual / Engine & Hybrid System / 2gr-fks (engine Control) / Sfi System / Intake Air Temperature Sensor 1 Bank 1 Circuit Short to Battery or Open (P011015)

DESCRIPTION

Refer to DTC P011011.

HINT:

When DTC P011015 is stored, the ECM enters fail-safe mode. During fail-safe mode, the intake air temperature is estimated to be 20°C (68°F) by the ECM. Fail-safe mode continues until a pass condition is detected, and the engine switch is then turned off.

DTC No.

Intake Air Temperature Sensor 1 Bank 1 Circuit Short to Battery or Open

The intake air temperature sensor output voltage is higher than 4.91 V for 0.5 seconds or more (1 trip detection logic).

  • Open or short in intake air temperature sensor circuit
  • Intake air temperature sensor (mass air flow meter sub-assembly)
  • ECM

Comes on

DTC stored

SAE Code: P0113

HINT:

When this DTC is output, check the intake air temperature in the Data List. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Data List / Intake Air Temperature.

DTC No.

Intake Air Temperature

Malfunction

P011015

-40°C (-40°F)

  • Short to +B in THA circuit
  • Open in THA circuit
  • Open in E2G circuit

If the Data List values is normal it may be due to a temporary recovery from the malfunction condition. Check for intermittent problems.

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The ECM monitors the sensor voltage and uses this value to calculate the intake air temperature. When the intake air temperature sensor output voltage deviates from the normal operating range, the ECM interprets this as a malfunction in the intake air temperature sensor circuit and stores this DTC.

Example:

If the intake air temperature sensor output voltage is higher than 4.91 V for 0.5 seconds or more, the ECM store this DTC.

CONFIRMATION DRIVING PATTERN

HINT:

  • After repair has been completed, clear the DTC and then check that the vehicle has returned to normal by performing the following All Readiness check procedure.

    Click here

  • When clearing the permanent DTCs, refer to the "CLEAR PERMANENT DTC" procedure.

    Click here

  1. Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.
  2. Turn the engine switch on (IG).
  3. Turn the Techstream on.
  4. Clear the DTCs (even if no DTCs are stored, perform the clear DTC procedure).
  5. Turn the engine switch off and wait for at least 30 seconds.
  6. Turn the engine switch on (IG) [A].
  7. Turn the Techstream on.
  8. Wait 0.5 seconds or more [B].
  9. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Trouble Codes [C].
  10. Read the pending DTCs.

    HINT:

    • If a pending DTC is output, the system is malfunctioning.
    • If a pending DTC is not output, perform the following procedure.
  11. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Utility / All Readiness.
  12. Input the DTC: P011015.
  13. Check the DTC judgment result.

    Techstream Display

    Description

    NORMAL

    • DTC judgment completed
    • System normal

    ABNORMAL

    • DTC judgment completed
    • System abnormal

    INCOMPLETE

    • DTC judgment not completed
    • Perform driving pattern after confirming DTC enabling conditions

    HINT:

    • If the judgment result is NORMAL, the system is normal.
    • If the judgment result is ABNORMAL, the system is malfunctioning.
    • [A] to [C]: Normal judgment procedure.

      The normal judgment procedure is used to complete DTC judgment and also used when clearing permanent DTCs.

    • When clearing the permanent DTCs, do not disconnect the cable from the battery terminal or attempt to clear the DTCs during this procedure, as doing so will clear the universal trip and normal judgment histories.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

HINT:

Read freeze frame data using the Techstream. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, if the air fuel ratio was lean or rich, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.
