|What is P0538 1997 FORD F150 code meaning?
The A/C Evaporator Temperature (ACET) sensor contains a thermistor which receives a reference voltage from the Powertrain Control Module (PCM
). The thermistor then varies the resistance to the reference voltage based on the evaporator discharge air temperature. The resulting voltage is returned to the PCM
where it is interpreted as an evaporator discharge air temperature reading.
maintains evaporator core temperature and prevents icing of the evaporator core, by disengaging the A/C compressor clutch when the evaporator A/C Evaporator Temperature sensor reading falls below acceptable levels, and by engaging the A/C compressor clutch when the discharge air temperature rises above acceptable levels.
The A/C Evaporator Temperature sensor is located inside of the heater core and evaporator core housing in the air-stream leaving the evaporator core.
The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) indicates the A/C Evaporator Temperature sensor signal input is greater than Self-Test minimum. Self-Test maximum is 4.5 volts.
