Dtc no

Dtc detection condition

Trouble area

P0128 Condition (a), (b) and (c):
  1.  cold start
  2.  after engine is warmed up
  3.  engine coolant temperature is less than 75°c (167°f)
  • Thermostat
  • cooling system
  • engine coolant temperature sensor
  • ecm

Monitor description

The ecm estimates the engine coolant temperature (ect) based on starting

The ecm estimates the engine coolant temperature (ect) based on starting temperature, engine loads, and engine speeds. The ecm then compares the estimated ect with the actual ect. When the estimated ect reaches 75 c (167 f) the ecm checks the actual ect. If the actual ect is less than 75 c (167 f), the ecm will interpret this as a fault in the thermostat or engine cooling system or thermostat and set a dtc.

    Circuit description
    The actuator motor is operated by signals from the cruise control ecu assy. Acceleration and deceleration signals are transmitted by changes in the duty ratio (see below). Duty ratio: the duty ratio is the ratio of the period of continuity in one cycle. For example, if a is the period of co ...
