Exhaust Gas Temperature 1 Circuit — Voltage Above Normal, or Shorted to Low Source. High signal voltage detected at the catalyst inlet temperature sensor circuit

Default temperature used for catalyst inlet temperature.

Circuit: Exhaust Gas Temperature 1
SMALL | MEDIUM | LARGE

Circuit Description

The catalyst inlet temperature sensor is used by the electronic control module (ECM) to monitor the engine exhaust temperature entering the catalyst unit. The ECM monitors the voltage on the signal pin and converts this to a temperature value.

Component Location

The catalyst inlet temperature sensor is located in the aftertreatment system. It is located between the turbocharger outlet and the catalyst unit inlet in the exhaust system.

Shop Talk

Catalyst inlet temperature sensor shares return wires in the engine harness with other sensors. A shorted return can cause multiple fault codes to be active.

Possible causes of this fault code include:

  • Open return circuit in the harness, connectors, or sensor.
  • Open signal circuit or shorted to a voltage source.

On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) Information (Euro 4 Certified Engines):

  • The ECM illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) when the diagnostic runs and fails.
  • The ECM turns OFF the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) after 3 consecutive ignition cycles that the diagnostic runs and does not fail. The MIL lamp and fault code can also be cleared using the INSITE™ service tool.
  • The fault code will be cleared from memory after 40 consecutive drive cycles where the diagnostic runs and passes.

On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) Information (Euro 4 Stage 1+ Certified Engines):

  • The ECM illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) when the diagnostic runs and fails.
  • An engine torque derate will be activated after 50 hours of engine operation with the fault code active.
  • The ECM turns OFF the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) after 1 ignition cycle that the diagnostic runs and does not fail. The MIL lamp cannot be cleared using the INSITE™ service tool.
  • The fault code will be cleared from memory after 400 days or 9600 hours of engine operation.
