P0112 2002 FORD F150 - Intake Air Temperature Circuit Low Input
P0112 2002 FORD F150 Possible Causes
- Faulty Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor
- Dirty air filter
- Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor harness is open or shorted
- Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor circuit poor electrical connection
First diagnose P0112 2002 FORD F150 code
Check the "Possible Causes" listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded terminals.
P0112 2002 FORD F150 Tech NotesIndicates the sensor signal is less than Self-Test minimum. The IAT sensor minimum is 0.2 volts or 121°C (250°F).
IAT V PID reading less than 0.2 volts with key ON and engine OFF or during any engine operating mode indicates a hard fault.
Cost of diagnosing the P0112 2002 FORD F150 code
Labor: 1.0The cost of diagnosing the P0112 2002 FORD F150 code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair labor rates vary widely across the country, and even within the same city. Most auto repairs shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.
When is the P0112 2002 FORD F150 code detected?An excessively low voltage from the sensor is sent to ECM.
P0112 2002 FORD F150 Possible Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
P0112 2002 FORD F150 MeaningThe Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor is built into mass air flow sensor or in some vehicles mounted to the air filter duct housing. The sensor detects intake air temperature and transmits a signal to the Engine Control Module (ECM).The temperature sensing unit uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. Electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases in response to the temperature rise. The Intake Air Temperature signal is used as an input for various systems in the vehicle.
