Toyota Corolla (E120): Circuit description

The crankshaft position sensor (ne signal) consists of a magnet, iron core and pickup coil.

The ne signal plate (crankshaft position sensor plate) has 34 teeth and is installed on the crankshaft. The ne signal sensor generates 34 signals for each engine revolution. This sensor monitors a plate (timing rotor) located on the crankshaft timing pulley and is used by the ecm to detect crankshaft angle and engine speed (rpm/ne). As the crankshaft timing pulley rotates through an engine revolution, this sensor communicates the rotation of the ne signal plate as a pulse signal to the ecm. Based on the signal, the ecm controls fuel injection time and ignition timing.

Reference: inspection using the oscilloscope.

Hint

: the correct waveform is as shown on the left.

Monitor description

Monitor description

If there is no signal from the crankshaft sensor despite the engine revolving, the ecm interprets this as a malfunction of the sensor.

    Inspection procedure
    Hint: if different dtcs related to different systems that have terminal e2 as the ground terminal are output simultaneously, terminal e2 may be open. If dtc p0441 (purge flow), p0446 (vsv for ccv), p0451, p0452 or p0453 (evaporative pressure sensor) is output with dtc p0442 or p0456, ...

    On–vehicle inspection
    1. Inspect brake booster Airtightness check.  Start the engine and stop it after 1 or 2 minutes. Depress the brake pedal several times slowly. Hint: if the pedal goes down farthest at the 1st time, but gradually rises after the 2nd or 3rd time, the booster is airtight. ...
