Kia Soul EV (PS EV) 2015-2020 Service Manual / Heating,Ventilation, Air Conditioning / Air Conditioning System / Ambient Temperature Sensor Repair procedures

Inspection
1.
Turn the ignition switch OFF.
2.
Disconnect ambient temperature sensor.
3.
Check the resistance of the ambient temperature sensor between terminals 1 and 2 whether it is changed by changing of the ambient temperature.

1. Sensor Ground
2. Ambient Sensor Signal

Specification
Ambient temperature
[°C(°F)]
Resistance between terminals 1and 2 (k?)
-10(14)
158.18
0 (32)
95.10
10 (50)
58.80
20 (68)

4.
If the measured resistance is not within the specification, substitute with a known-good ambient temperature sensor and check for proper operation.
5.
If the problem is corrected, replace the ambient temperature sensor.
Replacement
1.
Disconnect the negative (-) battery terminal.
2.
Remove the engine room under cover.
(Refer to Traction Motor Systerm - "Under Cover")
3.
Disconnect the connector and then remove the ambient temperature sensor (A).

4.
Install in the reverse order of removal.
