B1030 RAM Meaning

The Evaporator Temperature Sensor is a variable resistor that changes in conjunction with temperature, or otherwise known as a thermistor. The Evaporator Temperature Sensor is located in the HVAC housing downstream of the A/C evaporator. The A/C Heater Module monitors the evaporator temperature by monitoring the voltage change of the Evaporator Temperature Sensor Signal circuit. If the monitored voltage drops below or rises above a predetermined voltage, a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will set. For further information.
