DTC

P1120/19 Accel. Position Sensor circuit (Open/Short)

CIRCUIT DESCRIPTION
The accelerator pedal position sensor is mounted at the accelerator pedal and detects the accelerator pedal
opening angle. When the accelerator pedal is fully closed, a voltage of approximately 1.0 V is applied to terminals VA, VAS of the engine ECU. The voltage applied to the terminals VA, VAS of the engine ECU increases in proportion to the opening angle of the accelerator pedal and becomes approximately 3.8 V when
the accelerator pedal is fully opened. The engine ECU judges the vehicle driving conditions from these signals input from terminals VA, VAS and uses them as one of the conditions to control the injection volume
and diesel throttle valve position. The idle switch is mounted in the accelerator pedal position sensor and
sends the IDL signal to the engine ECU when the accelerator pedal is fully depressed.
This system has 2 way accelerator pedal position sensor and accelerator pedal closed position switch for
fail safe.
DTC No.
