B0174 DescriptionAir temperature sensors allow the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Control Module to monitor the discharge duct air, outside air and inside air temperatures. The HVAC control module provides ground to the air temperature sensor through the low reference circuit. The HVAC control module monitors the voltage drop across the air temperature sensor thermistor by supplying a 5 volt reference to the signal circuit of the air temperature sensor for automatic control calculations. When the air temperatures are cold, the resistances of the sensors are high and the voltage signals are high. When the air temperatures are hot, the resistances of the sensors are low and the voltage signals are low. The HVAC control module can read voltage values and count values where 1 volt is approximately equal to 51 counts.
