|What are the Possible Causes of the Code P0127 2012 Nissan Altima Sedan?
Faulty Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor
Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor harness is open or shorted
Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor electrical circuit poor connection
|How to Fix the P0127 2012 Nissan Altima Sedan Code?
Start by checking 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 connector's pins.
If the Intake Air Temperature (IAT) is part of the Mass Air Flow (MAF) the MAF assembly will need to be replaced to fix the problem.
|What is the Cost to Diagnose the Code P0127 2012 Nissan Altima Sedan?
The cost to diagnose the P0127 2012 Nissan Altima Sedan code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair's diagnosis time and labor rates vary by location, vehicle's make and model, and even your engine type. Most auto repair shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.
|What are Code P0127 2012 Nissan Altima Sedan Possible Symptoms?
Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
|What Does the P0127 2012 Nissan Altima Sedan Code Mean?
The Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor is variable temperature sensitive resistor that measures the temperature of the air in the intake system. Sensor resistance will change based on air temperature. The higher the temperature is, the lower the resistance. The Engine Control Module (ECM) provides a reference voltage and monitors the voltage drop between a fixed value internal resistance and the sensor resistance. This is called a voltage divider circuit.
IAT sensor values are used by the ECM processor to assist with the calculation of idle speed, fuel mixture and spark advance.
Inaccurate voltages from the IAT sensor may affect pulse-width, idle quality, and tail pipe emissions. Intermittent signals may cause hesitation, stumble and surging. If an IAT sensor failure accompanies an Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor failure, cooling fan operation may also be affected.
Some manufacturers incorporate the Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor as part of the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor (Air Flow Meter).
Intake Air Temperature Too High
