Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Engine Oil Temperature Sensor Circuit Short to Ground (P019511)

Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual / Engine / A25a-fxs Engine Control / Sfi System / Engine Oil Temperature Sensor Circuit Short to Ground (P019511)

DESCRIPTION

A thermistor, whose resistance changes in accordance with the engine oil temperature, is built into the engine oil temperature sensor. As the engine oil temperature decreases, the thermistor resistance increases and as the engine oil temperature increases, the thermistor resistance decreases. The engine oil temperature sensor is connected to the ECM. A voltage of 5 V is supplied from terminal THEO via resistor R of the ECM. Since resistor R and the engine oil temperature sensor are connected in series, both the resistance and the electrical potential of THEO are subject to change in accordance with a change in the engine oil temperature.

DTC No.

DTC stored

SAE Code: P0197

HINT:

When this DTC is output, check the engine oil temperature in the Data List. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Data List / Engine Oil Temperature Sensor.

DTC No.

Engine Oil Temperature Sensor

Malfunction

P019511

Higher than 168°C (334°F)

Short to ground in THEO circuit

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

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The ECM monitors the engine oil temperature sensor and uses the sensor voltage to calculate the engine oil temperature. If the engine oil temperature sensor output voltage deviates from the normal operating range, the ECM determines that the engine oil temperature sensor circuit is malfunctioning and stores this DTC.

Example:

If the engine oil temperature sensor output voltage is less than 0.13 V for 5 seconds or more, the ECM will 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 power 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 power switch off and wait for at least 30 seconds.
  6. Turn the power switch on (IG) [A].
  7. Turn the Techstream on.
  8. Wait 10 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: P019511.
  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 has a malfunction.
    • [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 auxiliary 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

NOTICE:

  • Vehicle Control History may be stored in the hybrid vehicle control ECU assembly if the engine is malfunctioning. Certain vehicle condition information is recorded when Vehicle Control History is stored. Reading the vehicle conditions recorded in both the Freeze Frame Data and Vehicle Control History can be useful for troubleshooting.

    Click here

    (Select Powertrain in Health Check and then check the time stamp data.)

    Click here

  • If any "Engine Malfunction" Vehicle Control History item has been stored in the hybrid vehicle control ECU assembly, make sure to clear it. However, as all Vehicle Control History items are cleared simultaneously, if any Vehicle Control History items other than "Engine Malfunction" are stored, make sure to perform any troubleshooting for them before clearing Vehicle Control History.

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.
